Defensive lineman Ross Blacklock

Darrisaw (concussion) and Ellefson (groin) were ruled out Friday when Blacklock (illness) was listed as questionable.

Vilain is inactive for the sixth game in a row after making his NFL debut in Miami in Week 6.

Lowe and Otomewo are inactive for a 12th consecutive game.

Blake Brandel started in place of Darrisaw in Week 12 against New England and relieved him in games at Buffalo and against Dallas.

The Vikings are poised to return defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson to the lineup for the first time since he suffered a calf injury against Arizona in Week 8 and cornerback Akayleb Evans.

The rookie was the first corner tabbed to fill in for Cameron Dantzler, Sr., who suffered an ankle injury at Washington in Week 9. Evans suffered a concussion at Buffalo but was cleared to return by NFL protocols this past week.
