Continued: Vikings notes: Peterson could play Sunday

Barring the unforeseen, Marcus Sherels will start in place of Rhodes at left cornerback Sunday. Cook’s injury was unknown to reporters when Frazier spoke to the media Friday, but during that interview, Frazier indicated that safety and current nickel back Robert Blanton would be a candidate to play on the outside.

“When you’re getting as thin as we are, everybody is a candidate to be moving around and playing chess with,” Frazier said. “You don’t rule anything out at this point.”

Smith close to returning

Barring an unlikely setback Saturday, free safety Harrison Smith will be activated from injured reserve and have a role in Sunday’s game. Smith has been out the past eight weeks because of a turf toe injury. He returned to practice two weeks ago.

“He’s practiced pretty well,” Frazier said. “So far, so good.”
