Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Ruled out for season finale
Holmes (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Holmes will miss a second straight game to close out the 2020 campaign, which comes as no surprise given that he was unable to contribute any sort of practice participation throughout the week.

Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Starting role on tap
Holmes is expected to slot into a staring role at defensive end following the trade of Yannick Ngakoue to Baltimore, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Holmes played roughly 50 percent of defensive snaps per game even with Ngakoue on the field, but he now looks set to handle a clear starting workload across from Ifeadi Odenigbo.
