Key Minnesota Vikings defenders appear on schedule to return

The Minnesota Vikings should be at full strength (minus one) with their active roster for Sunday.

Three key defenders all practiced for the Minnesota Vikings once again on Friday, indicating they should be set to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Middle linebacker Eric Kendricks (hip) and cornerbacks Terence Newman (illness) and Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) were all taking part in practice with full participation on Friday after returning on Thursday on a limited basis.

Officially, Kendricks, Munnerlyn and punter returner Marcus Sherels (ankle) are all listed as questionable, but each of them appears to be on their way to being able to play.

Newman didn’t even appear on the designations for his chances to play, meaning he is a certainty to be available.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (concussion) and backup offensive lineman Zac Kerin (hand) were also taking part in practice on Friday after being listed as limited on Wednesday and Thursday. Kerin was limited again on Friday – the only one that was limited – and Rhodes was a full participant after clearing the concussion protocol.

The only player missing at Friday’s practice was defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, who hasn’t played since Week 1 with a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery.  Head coach Mike Zimmer said Floyd is away from the facility once again to rehab the injury.
