Minnesota is locked into the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs and will find out its opponent for wild-card weekend later today. Since Sunday's regular-season finale has no bearing on positioning, the Vikings made six starters inactive and will use others sparingly, according to league sources. Minnesota's inactives include running backs Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison, both of whom are dealing with injuries, linebackers Eric Kendricks (quad) and Anthony Barr, offensive tackles Riley Reiff and Brian O'Neill and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen.
Chicago’s inactives include wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, nose tackle Eddie Goldman, offensive guard Rashaad Coward, defensive back Michael Joseph, right tackle Bobby Massie, tight end Bradley Sowell and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks.
