Minnesota Vikings down two cornerbacks to start Cardinals prep

The Minnesota Vikings were without their two most experienced cornerbacks as preparations for the Arizona Cardinals began.

The Minnesota Vikings started preparations for the Arizona Cardinals and their receiving corps without the Vikings’ two most experienced cornerbacks sitting out of practice and another one limited.

Starting cornerback Terence Newman didn’t practice Wednesday because of illness and starting nickel cornerback Captain Munnerlyn remained out with an ankle injury. Munnerlyn missed Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, but he was starting to run on the side this week and could join practice later in the week.

In addition to those two, starting middle linebacker Eric Kendricks remained out with a hip injury, an injury suffered in the first series of Sunday’s game that caused him to miss all but 11 defensive snaps.

The good news for the Vikings was that CB Xavier Rhodes practiced on a limited basis Wednesday after suffering a concussion Sunday and WR Laquon Treadwell (hamstring) and punt returner Marcus Sherels (ankle) were both full participants after missing the Washington game.
