|Vikings list several players as probable |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/19/13) The Minnesota Vikings released the team's official injury report for the Week 7 Monday night game at the New York Giants. After a practice Saturday, these five players were able to get back at it and were officially listed as probable to play in the game.
Those players are as follows: TE Rhett Ellison (knee); Backup QB Christian Ponder (rib); DB Xavier Rhodes (ankle); DL Kevin Williams (knee); and WR Jarius Wright (ankle).
|The Vikings have taken Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes with the 25th overall selection in the NFL draft. They drafted the big cornerback with their second first-rounder on Thursday night. Rhodes, a press corner, had four interceptions and 12 pass breakups as a junior last season. He's expected to help the Vikings overcome the loss of veteran Antoine Winfield, who signed with Seattle after being released in the offseason. Rhodes gives the Vikings some much-needed size at cornerback in a division that features receivers Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall. The knock on him is that he's toophysical, drawing pass interference flags with over aggressive play. He also doesn't have the elite speed to keep up with the league's fastest receivers. He will have to get used to taking on the Marshalls and Megatrons in the world. It seems like too much to expect big stats from him. Rhodes is worth a late-round flier in deeper seasonal leagues and a late pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts. (Updated 5/15/13) |
