Vikings Vs. Buccaneers Final Week 1 Injury Report: Marcus Davenport Added

EAGAN, Minn. — Another day, another addition to the Vikings injury report.

Minnesota added outside linebacker Marcus Davenport to the report Friday. He was listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 1 game against Tampa Bay because of an ankle injury.

"He took part in just about everything, but he was limited, and we're going to be just monitoring how he [feels going] into the game feeling," Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell said. "It was something that happened yesterday, a little bit of a tweak there. We want to be cautious, but we are optimistic that we should have Marcus."

Punter Ryan Wright was added Thursday because of an ankle injury. He joined linebacker Troy Dye (elbow) on the report.

Neither Wright nor Dye received a designation for the game, so both are expected to be available for the noon (CT) game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Mauch did not practice Thursday or Friday. Kancey progressed from not practicing Wednesday to being limited Thursday and giving a full-go on Friday.

The other four Buccaneers on the injury report — outside linebacker Anthony Nelson (hamstring), running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn (not injury related — personal) and safeties Antoine Winfield, Jr., (calf) and Kaevon Merriweather (quad) fully participated Friday and did not receive a designation for the game.
