Injuries will keep the Vikings without two starters in Sunday's NFC showdown against the Eagles in Minneapolis. 

The Vikings announced Friday that right guard Josh Kline (concussion) and outside linebacker Ben Gedeon (foot) will not play in the noon kickoff. 

The only other injury of note is that linebacker Kentrell Brothers (hamstring/wrist) is questionable. 

Expect Dakota Dozier to start in place of Kline, and Eric Wilson to get the start at linebacker for Gedeon. 

The Eagles are dealing with a lot of injuries and six players have been ruled out, including wide receiver Desean Jackson and cornerbacks Avante Maddox and Ronald Darby.
