In other news:
- On the injury front, Frazier revealed that receiver Michael Jenkins suffered bruised ribs Sunday but should be OK going forward.
- Linebacker Erin Henderson, who has sat out the past two games, has still not been cleared to return to practice after suffering a concussion. In Henderson's place, Jasper Brinkley has taken on a heightened role in the Vikings' nickel defense and has performed so well that Frazier said he might consider keeping him in that role even when Henderson is healthy again. "He did a good job yesterday against a high-powered passing offense," Frazier said. "So we’ll have to take a real hard look at where he is in the passing game and where Erin would be when he comes back."
- Frazier also had high praise for nose tackle Letroy Guion, who has taken his game to a new level in the Vikings' 3-1 start. Said his head coach: "He’s become so much more professional about his work and his approach to work. We talked a lot during the offseason. He's really worked to show his teammates, along with our staff, that he was taking his job more seriously. He was awarded a contract [as a free agent] in the offseason. He was very grateful for that. And I expressed to him the way to show your gratitude is to be a pro about your business, about what you have to do on the football field. He’s spent a lot more time in the classroom, studying and preparing for opponents. It’s showing up on the field. He’s playing exceptionally well for us. But he’s taken his game to another level as far as his preparation. He’s had the physical tools. Now he’s becoming a student of the game.”
