Vikings vs. Packers Final Week 17 Injury Report

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings (7-8) on Friday ruled out cornerback Byron Murphy, Jr., safety Theo Jackson, receiver Jalen Nailor and defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy for Sunday's game against the Packers (7-8).

Murphy is dealing with a knee injury he suffered in Week 15 at Cincinnati, and Nailor remains in concussion protocol, which he entered in Week 14 at Las Vegas.

Jackson (toe) and Roy (ankle) were added to the injury report this week.

Minnesota also listed receiver Jordan Addison (ankle), cornerback Mekhi Blackmon (shoulder) and linebacker Troy Dye (wrist) as questionable.

The other players on Minnesota's Week 17 injury report — defensive linemen Harrison Phillips (back) and Sheldon Day (ankle), running back Alexander Mattison (ankle), tackle Brian O'Neill (ankle) and linebacker Ivan Pace, Jr. (shoulder) — did not receive designations and are expected to be available.  

Minnesota officially placed tight end T.J. Hockenson (torn ACL and MCL) and outside linebacker D.J. Wonnum (quadriceps) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday. Hockenson and Wonnum suffered season-ending injuries in Week 16 against Detroit.

Kickoff for the 127th Border Battle is 7:20 p.m. (CT) Sunday.
