Vikings’ Player Updates For Thursday

The Vikings will try for their second win of the season at home against the Redskins on Thursday night and they’ll be doing it without two starters from their secondary as safety Jamarca Sanford (groin) and cornerback Chris Cook (hip) will both be out for the Vikings.

Both players missed last week’s game as well and the short turnaround to Week 10 didn’t do them any favors on the rehab front.

The Vikings also ruled out right tackle Phil Loadholt (concussion), tight end Kyle Rudolf (broken foot), running back Matt Asiata, defensive tackle Fred Evans, and it seems that guard Charlie Johnson is unlikely to play with his lingering elbow injury.
