Vikings Injury Report: Jerick McKinnon, Greg Jennings, Matt Asiata

The Minnesota Vikings will welcome one of the hottest teams in the league to town in Week 12, as the Green Bay Packers will come to TCF Bank Stadium. Here is a closer look at the Vikings' injury report for Sunday's game.

Running back Matt Asiata suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Chicago Bears, and after being held out of practice all week he will miss Sunday's game. Running Jerick McKinnon is dealing with a lower back issue for the second straight week, but he is again listed as probable and should be able to suit up against Green Bay. New addition Ben Tate may see some significant action in his first game for the Vikings.

Listed as probable for Minnesota is tight end Kyle Rudolph (groin/abdomen), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), defensive end Everson Griffen, linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (not injury-related), offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle) and defensive end Scott Crichton (hip).

Wide receivers Greg Jennings (ribs) and Jarius Wright (hamstring) are listed as questionable for Sunday's game, as are defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) and offensive tackle Matt Kalil (knee). Kalil was a late addition to Friday's injury report, which on the surface creates serious doubt about his ability to play against the Packers.
