Darius Slay

Allen Park -- The Minnesota Vikings might have the NFL's best receiver tandem in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, so cornerback Darius Slay showing up on Friday's injury report is a less-than-ideal situation for the Detroit Lions heading into Sunday's matchup. 

Slay was limited during Friday's practice with a knee injury and has been listed as questionable for the contest. 

Also questionable for Detroit are defensive end Ziggy Ansah and guard T.J. Lang. Ansah has missed six straight games with a shoulder injury and remained limited in practice throughout this week. Lang was limited by a hip injury. It's unknown if the issue is related to surgery he had prior to the 2017 season. 

The Lions also listed linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin as doubtful for the game. He is dealing with neck and toe injuries. 

For the Vikings, the team ruled out linebacker Anthony Barr, while listing five starters -- offensive tackle Riley Reiff, cornerback Xavier Rhodes, safety Anthony Sendejo, running back Dalvin Cook and Diggs -- as questionable.
