Vikings vs. Giants Final Week 16 Injury Report

EAGAN, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings (11-3) on Thursday ruled out center Garrett Bradbury for their Week 16 game against the New York Giants (8-5-1), which is scheduled to kickoff at noon (CT) Saturday.

Bradbury has been dealing with a back injury that sidelined him in Weeks 14 and 15. Austin Schlottmann is likely to start in his place for the third consecutive game.

It was further complicated because Bradbury was in a car accident after last week's game.

Vikings Injury Report:

Minnesota also listed linebacker Eric Kendricks (hip) and cornerback Cameron Dantzler, Sr. (ankle), as questionable for the regular-season home finale.

Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell said Kendricks is progressing well and fully participated Thursday. He said Dantzler was limited.

None of the other players who appeared on the injury report this week received a designation.

Receiver Adam Thielen (not injury related — rest), linebacker Brian Asamoah II (ankle) and outside linebacker Pat Jones II (illness) are expected to be available.
