The 49ers square off against the Vikings on Monday Night Football tonight, and we've got everything you need to know right here.
In some ways, the San Francisco 49ers' Week 6 road loss to the Cleveland Browns can be a good thing.
Now at 5-1, the Niners have to get serious about avoiding a two-game losing streak and treat the loss as a wake-up call.
Plus, as any experienced football fan knows, a team that narrowly loses a game the previous week is always exceptionally dangerous the next.
49ers injury report vs. Vikings, Week 7
One of the side effects of San Francisco's loss to Cleveland was accumulating a notable injury list, which included three All-Pros in left tackle Trent Williams, running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Deebo Samuel.
Samuel, who is dealing with a hairline fracture in his injured shoulder, has been ruled out, as the 49ers' Week 7 injury report stated:
- WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder): OUT
- OT Trent Williams (ankle): Doubtful
- RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique): Questionable
- LB Dre Greenlaw (hamstring): Questionable
Samuel won't return for at least two weeks, but he also won't land on injured reserve.
McCaffrey, meanwhile, is dealing with a slight tear in his oblique but is aiming to play anyway.
Minnesota, however, already has two of its star players on injured reserve, wide receiver Justin Jefferson and defensive end Marcus Davenport, while starting guard Ezra Cleveland (foot) has been ruled out.
