Minnesota has an important game in Week 17. Thankfully, the Vikings’ depth chart is looking pretty good. Kevin O’Connell will have a nearly full roster to help him try to outsmart Matt LaFleur and the Green Bay Packers.

The players, of course, are most important when it comes to whether a game is won or lost. As a result, I’m offering up this depth chart to give fans a refresher. At times, it differs from the one on the team’s website, so be aware that there are some differences.

Finally, keep in mind that practice squad players aren’t included since this piece only covers the 53-man roster. Players with an injury designation find their names in italics. The team has 2 players included on their injury report leading into the game. Keep reading to see who has already been ruled out.
