Minnesota Vikings Injury Report, Week 16: Concussions Sideline Steve Hutchinson, Asher Allen

Concussions will sideline two Minnesota Vikings players for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins, the team announced in its Friday injury report. Cornerback Asher Allen and seven-time Pro Bowler guard Steve Hutchinson will not play Saturday. Neither will cornerback Chris Cook, whom the team has dismissed on paid leave due to an ongoing legal matter.

However, four players who had only practiced on a limited basis all week returned Friday to practice in full, and are thus listed as probable. Those four are guard Anthony Herrera, safety Jarrad Page, defensive tackle Kevin Williams, and linebacker Erin Henderson. Henderson ranks No. 5 on the team with 61 tackles (40 solo), so this news is certainly good for Minnesota.

Kickoff for Saturday's Redskins/Vikings matchup is set for 1 PM on FOX.
