Nose tackle Dontari Poe (high ankle sprain) and inside linebacker Josh Mauga (groin/Achilles’) each missed practice for the third straight day Friday and have been ruled out for Sunday’s game at Minnesota.

Tight end Travis Kelce (groin/neck), tight end James O’Shaughnessy (hand), tight end Brian Parker (finger) and cornerback Jamell Fleming (elbow) were all full participants on Friday and are listed as probable, which means they will almost certainly play.

Vikings injuries

The Vikings had three starters listed on Friday’s injury report, including receiver Mike Wallace (knee), receiver Charles Johnson (rib) and safety Andrew Sendejo (knee). Wallace, who did not practice on Wednesday and was a limited participant on Thursday, was a full participant Friday and is listed as probable for the game.

Johnson and Sendejo were limited on Friday and are listed as questionable, which means there’s a 50-50 chance they play.

Defensive end Justin Trattou (foot) has been ruled out for the game, while receiver Jarius Wright (hand), cornerback Jabari Price (shoulder) and tight end Rhett Ellison (knee) are listed as probable.
