With the week’s final injury report for both the Bucs and Vikings released, it gives some insight toward the availability of stars on both teams ahead of their Week 14 match-up on Sunday.
For Tampa Bay, receiver Chris Godwin was a full participant on Friday after missing practice this week due to a minor surgery he underwent earlier in the week to remove pins from a broken finger that he sustained in Week 7. And after cornerback Jamel Dean was forced to miss the Bucs’ Week 12 game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a concussion, the second-year defensive missed practice time this week due to a groin injury and his now officially listed as doubtful.
On the other sideline, the Vikings may head into Sunday missing a number of their stars as All-Pro middle linebacker Eric Kendricks is listed out with a calf injury that held him out of last week’s contest against the Jaguars while Minnesota may also may be missing their two top tight ends as Kyle Rudolph is listed as doubtful with a foot injury as second-year player Irv Smith Jr. is officially questionable with a back injury.
