Continued: Sherels makes a solid case to win Vikings roster spot after big game

Frazier was pleased to conclude the preseason with a victory after his team struggled in the first three games, particularly on offense. The team now must reduce the roster from 75 to 53.

The waiting game is an anxious time for players on the bubble. That includes Sherels, who knows the drill by now.

“Same as it’s been the past three years for me,” he said. “It’s not really in my hands. It’s out of my control. I’ll just sit and wait.”

He should be able to rest easier after Thursday.
