In other injury news, right guard Kevin Zeitler (ankle/wrist) will miss his first game since the 2014 season.
He will be replaced by Nick Gates in the starting lineup. This will be Gates' second career start; earlier this year he started at right tackle for Mike Remmers.
Also, tight ends Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) were both declared out.
This will be Engram's fifth straight absence due to the foot sprain he suffered in a November 4 loss to the Cowboys. Engram had initially hoped to be back after three weeks, but the injury has taken longer to heal.
Ellison will miss his fourth consecutive game after suffering a concussion against the Jets on November 10. He was able to practice on a limited, non-contact basis this week but is still a ways away from returning.
