Pre-Game Notes

I have decided to skip the live blog for today, but I’ll check in throughout with notes.

The Vikings inactives are cornerback Antoine Winfield; running back Albert Young; linebacker Erin Henderson; center Jon Cooper; wide receiver Darius Reynaud (hamstring); defensive end Jayme Mitchell; and defensive tackle Letroy Guion. The Vikings third quarterback today will be Sage Rosenfels.

The Steelers inactives are wide receiver Limas Sweed; cornerback Keenan Lewis; fullback Carey Davis; linebacker Andre Frazier; guard Kraig Urbik; offensive tackle Tony Hills; and defensive end Sunny Harris. Dennis Dixon is the Steelers’ third quarterback.

Percy Harvin is active and is currently practicing catching kickoffs.  It’ll be interesting to see how involved HArvin becomes today.

Also, keep an eye on our cornerback play.  Asher Allen will be making his debut, and Benny Sapp and Karl Paymah will be vying for starting time.  Perhaps most important, Cedric Griffin will need to play well in order to help fill in for Winfield.

In case you missed it, ESPN has reported that Winfield may miss up to 4 to 6 weeks.
