Cornerbacks Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) and Marcus Sherels (ankle) were both ruled out earlier this week.

Here's the full list of Vikings inactives:

The Vikings will soon be departing their team hotel in northern Virginia and heading to FedEx Field as they will take on the 4-3-1 Washington Redskins.

The Redskins are coming off of their bye week after tying the Bengals 27-27 in London. Prior to that, they had a four-game winning streak stopped by the Lions at Ford Field. Washington's offense, which is led by QB Kirk Cousins and their short passing attack, is 7th in the NFL in total offense and are averaging 23.3 points per game. WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is doubtful for the game but Cousins will still have plenty of weapons at his disposal, including TE Jordan Reed and second-year WR Jamison Crowder, who leads them in catches with 40.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Redskins rank in the middle of the NFL in most categories, but are allowing nearly 124 yards per game on the ground, better than just six teams. Running the ball has been a struggle for the Vikings this year of course, but with a healthy Jerick McKinnon and a full week to prepare under Interim Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur, there's a chance this Sunday to get the ground game going.

Sam Bradford had one of his best games of the season last Sunday, completing over 75 percent of his passes – many of the short variety – and not turning the ball over. Despite the loss to the Lions, Head Coach Mike Zimmer saw signs of life from his team, which wasn't the case in the back-to-back road losses to Philadelphia and Chicago the two weeks prior.

On the injury front for the Vikings, Marcus Sherels has been ruled out due to an ankle injury. DT Linval Joseph (shoulder) was limited in Friday's practice after missing the previous two days is listed as questionable but told reporters on Friday he's good to go for Sunday. CB Captain Munnerlyn was initially listed as doubtful but then ruled out on Saturday morning due to an ankle injury. With Munnerlyn out, it's likely that Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes will handle the outside while Terence Newman slides inside to the slot as he did last Sunday after Munnerlyn was forced to leave the game.
