Unlike the regular season where deactivated/inactive players are listed and distributed to the media, in the preseason, it is more of an unofficial process.
The Vikings have told Viking Update that three players definitely won't play tonight - wide receiver Bernard Berrian and tight ends Jim Kleinsasser and Garrett Mills. A fourth, quarterback Sage Rosenfels, wasn't in uniform and also won't dress.
On the good news side of thing, defensive end Jared Allen, who wasn't expected to play, is in uniform.
