Vikings vs. 49ers Week 7 Final Injury Report: Cleveland Out; Evans & Nailor Questionable

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Saturday ruled out left guard Ezra Cleveland for Monday's game against the 49ers at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Cleveland suffered a foot injury in Week 6 at Chicago and was replaced by veteran Dalton Risner, who signed with Minnesota after the 2023 season started.

The injury will halt Cleveland's consecutive starts streak at 45 regular-season games, which began Dec. 6, 2020, and was the longest among Vikings offensive linemen.

Cleveland had played 100 percent of Minnesota's offensive snaps in all but three games since then, including Sunday.

Minnesota (2-4) listed cornerback Akayleb Evans (oblique) and receiver Jalen Nailor (hamstring) as questionable. Nailor is currently in his 21-day window for evaluation as he prepares to return from Injured Reserve.

Outside linebacker Pat Jones II (shoulder) did not receive an injury designation and is expected to be available for the game.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Monday (CT) at U.S. Bank Stadium.
