As expected, San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams is officially inactive for tonight’s game.
The Niners will give Williams a week, at least, to heal with a lower ankle-sprain. Jaylon Moore filled in for Williams last week, but Matt Pryor — who was inactive a week ago — is also active. We’ll have a better idea of who gets the nod at left tackle during pre-game warm-ups.
Here’s a look at the inactive list:
TDP inactive must mean the 49ers are going to give Christian McCaffrey meaningful reps, and he’ll be anything but a decoy. Elijah Mitchell should be fresh, and Jordan Mason has earned carries. So even if McCaffrey doesn’t have his usual workload, the 49ers should be OK at running back with their depth.
Here’s a look at the Vikings inactive list:
CB Najee Thompson
TE Nick Muse
LB Andre Carter II
G Ezra Cleveland
T Hakeem Adeniji
Minnesota placed edge rusher Marcus Davenport on the injured reserve last week, which was a big blow to their pass rushing depth.
