Here's who's in and out for Vikings and Rams

Good news for the Vikings while questions remain for the Rams.

Good news for the Vikings as both running back Dalvin Cook and left tackle Riley Reiff will be good to go for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Rams. 

Reiff was questionable with a foot injury but will play and start at left tackle. Cook, who missed last week's game against Buffalo with a hamstring injury, will also be back in the lineup for Minnesota. 

The big missing pieces for the Vikings will be defensive end Everson Griffen (not injury related) and defensive tackle Tom Johnson (ankle). 

For the Rams, two defensive starters are out: cornerback Aqib Talib (ankle) and inside linebacker Mark Barron (hamstring). 

The big surprise is that cornerback Marcus Peters (calf) is active. It's unclear how much he'll play isn't clear. 

Outside linebacker Dominique Easley — listed as questionable with a knee injury — will not play in tonight's game.
