Raiders-Vikings inactives

Quarterbacks Jason Campbell and Terrelle Pryor, running back Darren McFadden, wide receiver Jacoby Ford, fullback Manase Tonga, cornerback Chris Johnson and offensive lineman Bruce Campbell are inactive for today’s game.

For the Vikings, cornerback Chris Cook, safety Husain Abdullah, linebacker Erin Henderson, guard Anthony Herrera, offensive tackle DeMarcus Love, wide receiver Stephen Burton and defensive end D’Aundre Reed are inactive.
