Vikings have 5 starters inactive vs. Redskins
Cornerback Chris Cook, safety Jamarca Sanford, right tackle Phil Loadholt, left guard Charlie Johnson and tight end Kyle Rudolph were all out of action due to injuries Thursday night, and backup nose tackle Fred Evans was, too. With starting nose tackle Letroy Guion also injured, rookie Sharrif Floyd was in the starting lineup for the first time to take Guion's place.
The Redskins are relatively healthy. Strong safety Jose Gumbs was inactive because of an ankle injury. He has started one game this season.
