But perhaps the most interesting inactive for Sunday's game is CB Brandon Burton, who played five snaps as the Vikings' fourth cornerback. In his place is A.J.

He might also contribute in the kick-return game, as he has taken reps there on a regular basis in practice.
Also inactive for the Vikings are QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, S Robert Blanton, LB Audie Cole and OL Mark Asper.
The Colts have several starters inactive because of injury, including LB Dwight Freeney, WR Autin Collie, G Joe Reitz and OT Winston Justice. Also inactive for the Colts are QB Chandler Harnish, RB Delone Carter and LB Pat Angerer.
