The inactive reports from the Vikings and 49ers include three big names, two for San Francisco and one for Minnesota. Well, it's five big names if you count Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson and edge rusher Marcus Davenport, who are currently on injured reserve. 

Nonetheless, the Vikings are down left guard Ezra Cleveland (foot) and the 49ers will play without wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and left tackle Trent Williams (ankle). 

Williams is rated by Pro Football Focus as the sixth-best tackle in the NFL this season. Samuel is the ultimate Swiss army knife on offense and Cleveland grades as the ninth-best guard in the NFL this season, according to PFF. 

Dalton Risner will start in Cleveland's place. 

It's also noteworthy that safety Lewis Cine is a healthy scratch for the Vikings. It's the second straight week the 2022 first-round pick has been a healthy scratch.
