Boyd & Sharpe Out for Vikings on Updated Week 4 Final Injury Report

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Saturday downgraded cornerback Kris Boyd (hamstring) from doubtful to out and announced that receiver Tajaé Sharpe (illness) was added to the report and ruled out for Sunday's scheduled game in Houston.

Friday's Vikings Injury Report: Cornerback Mike Hughes was ruled out. After starting in Weeks 1 and 2, Hughes has been dealing with a neck injury and did not practice this week.

Cornerback Cameron Dantzler (rib) and tackle Olisaemeka Udoh (finger) also were on the injury report this week but did not receive a designation for Sunday's game, meaning each player is likely to be available.

Thursday's Vikings Injury Report: Mike Hughes (neck) did not participate. Fellow cornerbacks Cameron Dantzler (rib) and Kris Boyd (hamstring) were limited. Tackle Olisaemeka Udoh (finger) was added to the report as a limited participant Thursday.

Wednesday's Vikings Injury Report: The Vikings were unable to practice Wednesday because Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center remained closed in response to the COVID-19 positive tests for Titans players and coaches who participated against Minnesota in Week 3.

Wednesday's participations for the Vikings are estimations.

Cameron Dantzler (rib) was listed as "limited." Fellow cornerbacks Kris Boyd (hamstring) and Mike Hughes (neck) would not have participated if there had been a practice.
