Adrian Peterson, Jerome Simpson, Percy Harvin and Jared Allen are all active for the Vikings against the Arizona Cardinals. All were dealing with injuries and soreness this week.
Here are the game days inactives for today's game:
The Vikings have deactivated QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, WR Jarius Wright, OT Mark Asper, DE D'Aundre Reed, LB Audie Cole, CB Brandon Burton and safety Mistral Raymond.
Raymond, with his partially dislocated ankle, is the only one among the inactives that has been dealing with injury.
Peterson missed two days of practice last week with a sprained ankle, Allen was dealing with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss Thursday's practice, Simpson missed last week's game with back issues, and Harvin appeared to be limping a few times in last Sunday's game but was simply dealing with soreness, according to head coach Leslie Frazier.
The Cardinals are in much worse shape.
The Cardinals inactives include QB Kevin Kolb (ribs), FB Anthony Sherman (knee), TE Todd Heap (knee), G Senio Kelemete, LB Reggie Walker (head), CB Greg Toler (hamstring) and S Kerry Rhodes (back).
