(9/6/2013) The Vikings enter Week 1 with a pretty hefty list of injured players, though they are expected to have the majority of them available for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Of the 10 players listed on the injury report Friday, only defensive lineman Kevin Williams is expected to miss the game. The remainder are listed as probable despite their various injuries, as follows: quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson (illness); defensive backs Chris Cook (groin), Harrison Smith (back) and Mistral Raymond (shoulder); linebackers Larry Dean (shoulder) and Erin Henderson (heel); defensive linemen Sharrif Floyd (knee) and Letroy Guion (finger); wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (back); and tackle Phil Loadholt (knee).
