Safety Harrison Smith (hamstring), safety Anthony Harris (groin), nose tackle Linval Joseph (knee) and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) were all questionable entering the day, but all four are active. 

Wide receiver Adam Thielen is out with a hamstring injury and linebacker Ben Gedeon will miss another game due to a concussion.
