Final Vikings-Lions Week 3 Injury Report

EAGAN, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings on Friday ruled out safety Harrison Smith and cornerback Andrew Booth, Jr., for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Smith is in concussion protocol and did not practice this week.

Booth is recovering from a quadriceps injury he suffered in Week 1.
Minnesota listed Eric Kendricks as questionable with a toe injury Friday after he was added to the injury report.

Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell said Josh Metellus and Lewis Cine could have some opportunities to play, depending on the situation.

"I see a lot of different roles depending on if it's Metellus or Lewis. I would expect both those guys play," O'Connell said. "When Josh has got a chance to go in there, he's really done some good things, and I think he's been really, really good on special teams. Playing aggressive, flying around, which will only bode well for our defense, adding that into our group.

"I feel really good about where Lew is, coming off that injury in the opener and then being able to get back out there and really flash a few times on teams, as well," O'Connell added. "Just continue to integrate him in there and continue to develop his role, because we're going to be counting on him for a lot of things this year."
