Jackson will start for Minnesota
Rookie John David Booty, a fifth-round draft pick from USC, will be the No. 2 quarterback. Frerotte is officially the No. 3 quarterback, meaning he would be eligible to play if both Frerotte and Booty are forced out of the game.
The Vikings' other seven inactive players:
- Tight end Garrett Mills
- Linebacker Dontarrious Thomas
- Defensive lineman Jimmy Kennedy
- Defensive end Otis Grigsby
- Offensive lineman Artis Hicks
- Wide receiver Darius Reynaud
- Defensive lineman Letroy Guion
Ryan Cook will start at right tackle in place of Hicks.
