Vikings' Josh Freeman officially inactive
By Ben Goessling
MINNEAPOLIS -- There are no major surprises among the Minnesota Vikings' inactives for Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, but Josh Freeman is officially out with a concussion. He was ruled out on the Vikings' injury report on Friday, and was one of the team's seven inactives for the game.
Wide receiver Rodney Smith (hip), running back Matt Asiata (shoulder) and tight end Rhett Ellison (ankle) are the other Vikings players missing the game with an injury. Ellison is a key run blocker for the Vikings, and the team promoted tight end Chase Ford from the practice squad to make up for Ellison's absence. He is active for the game, as is fourth-round pick Gerald Hodges, who has had a tough time getting on the field so far this season.
