Continued: Vikings notes: Rhodes in the spotlight

Safety Robert Blanton and cornerback Marcus Sherels are Frazier’s options at nickel back. Blanton played 50 of the defense’s 94 snaps against the Packers, Sherels 58.

“It helps us from a depth standpoint,” Frazier said of Rhodes’ return, “and you’re putting a guy at corner who is a corner as opposed to what we’re doing with Robert and what we end up having to do with Marcus, who is more of a spot player, not a guy you want to take 60 snaps.”

Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson (fractured sternum) is still a few weeks away from returning. Frazier said Robinson would start again when he does return, which would place Rhodes back as the nickel corner.

Questionable but ready

The Vikings are about as healthy as they’ve been this season. Tight end Kyle Rudolph and Robinson are the only players expected to miss Sunday’s game.

Wide receiver Joe Webb passed the concussion test and was a full participant in Friday’s practice. Defensive end Brian Robison returned to practice after missing Thursday’s practice because of an illness.
