Russell Wilson and the Seahawks welcome the Vikings to Seattle on Monday night in a showdown between two top NFC teams. Will Mike Zimmer’s fearsome Minnesota defense be able to limit Wilson and the Seahawks’ inconsistent run game?

Our experts think the Vikings’ defensive line may handle a weak Seattle offensive line, but warn that Minnesota’s injury troubles may limit their effectiveness.

Vikings-Seahawks Injury Report

Which team is healthier? Seahawks

Most of the Seattle injuries are on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive lineman Al Woods (ankle) didn’t practice until he got in a limited session on Saturday. His potential absence would be good news for Dalvin Cook since he’s one of the Seahawks’ best run defenders on the interior. Jadeveon Clowney (knee/hip) is listed as questionable again, but he did manage limited practices on Friday and Saturday. He leads the team in quarterback pressures, hits and hurries.

The Vikings listed key defenders Linval Joseph (knee), Harrison Smith (hamstring), Anthony Harris (groin) and Shamar Stephen (knee) as questionable. All of them except Harris practiced in full on Saturday, so I’d expect most of them to be active on Monday night. The other key injury is obviously Adam Thielen (hamstring), who was ruled out on Sunday. Justin Bailey
