The Vikings have ruled out starting center Joe Berger and punt returner Marcus Sherels for tonight’s game against the Cowboys, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Second-year center Nick Easton is expected to get his first NFL start with Berger still recovering from the concussion he suffered last Thursday.
The Vikings listed wide receiver Stefon Diggs and cornerback Terence Newman as questionable. But both players, who sat out last week, are expected to suit up after participating in multiple practices this week.
Rookie cornerback Mackensie Alexander is doubtful to play tonight.
The Vikings also ruled out defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, a formality considering he has not practiced with the team since September.
