Vikings rule Bradbury, Lynch out; 3 others questionable

The Minnesota Vikings will finish the regular season without at least two players on Sunday.

Friday, the team ruled out center Garrett Bradbury and defensive lineman James Lynch. Bradbury has missed the last several games due to a back injury while Lynch is dealing with a shoulder injury.

The team is hoping to have both back for the playoffs.

Additionally, the Vikings listed linebacker Brian Asamoah II, cornerback Cameron Dantzler Sr. and edge Za’Darius Smith as questionable for the game in Chicago. Asamoah was limited in practice this week by a knee injury while Dantzler is dealing with an ankle issue and Smith has a personal matter.

The Vikings can still become the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a win over the Bears and a San Francisco loss to Arizona. The Bears also ruled out quarterback Justin Fields and have the second-worst record in the NFL.
