The final injury report for the Vikings leading up to Sunday's noon kickoff against the 49ers at U.S. Bank Stadium has been released and there's concerning news about All-Pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes. 

The Vikings list Rhodes as questionable with a hamstring injury, although after being a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, he was a full participant on Friday. 

We'll know for sure whether he plays or not 90 minutes before kickoff on Sunday. 

As expected, center Pat Elflein is out and Brett Jones is expected to start in his place. 

Those are the big injury updates, with the rest below.
