The Vikings offensive line will be down two starters against the Panthers as Minnesota looks to clinch a playoff spot in Week 14.

Rookie center Pat Elflein was scratched from the lineup on Sunday morning after being listed as questionable on the final injury report. Elflein, who has started every game this season, is battling a shoulder injury that limited him in practice throughout the week.

Minnesota will also be without starting right tackle Mike Remmers for a fifth straight game. Remmers went down with a concussion against Cleveland and was in league protocol until Week 12. He then sustained a lower back injury during the week of practice for Atlanta and has not practiced since Nov. 29.
