Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:07:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings CB Chris Cook (hip) and S Jamarca Sanford (groin) could play in Week 9 if they do enough in practice Friday, Nov. 1, to convince the coaching staff. "If they were cleared tomorrow, definitely (they could play)," head coach Leslie Frazier said. "But if Chris and Jamarca couldn't go, it really thins us out. It's a little scary when you start getting into your depth this early in the season." CBs Xavier Rhodes, Marcus Sherels or A.J. Jefferson would start at right cornerback if Cook can't play.

Cardinals | Competition at CB will be heated

Sat, 21 Jul 2012 19:20:26 -0700

The Arizona Cardinals have plenty of depth at the cornerback position, so it will be interesting to see who stays and who goes.

CB William Gay is considered a good fit to replace CB Richard Marshall (Dolphins) in the hybrid/cornerback role. That leaves CB Michael Adams, Jamell Fleming, A.J. Jefferson and Greg Toler to duke it out for a meaningful role.
