Draft Scout *Xavier Rhodes News
12/05/13 - CB Xavier Rhodes has 16 passes defensed, which ranks second in Vikings history by a rookie. The most by a rookie is 19 by Orlando Thomas in 1995.
11/27/13 - --CB Xavier Rhodes (concussion), who had his best game as a rookie with four passes defensed in Sunday's tie with the Packers, left the game late in the fourth quarter because of a concussion. He passed the first part of the NFL concussion protocol for return on Monday. If he's symptom-free on Thursday after going through the exertion test on Wednesday, he'll be able to play on Sunday. With him out, punt returner Marcus Sherels and safety Robert Blanton have to play more corner in the nickel.
11/06/13 - CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) was injured late in the Cowboys game, but is expected to play Thursday. Whether he makes it through the game is another matter. Rhodes, a rookie first-round pick, has been the team's best cornerback, but that's not saying much this year. If he goes down, it puts A.J. Jefferson or Marcus Sherels on the field more. Jefferson did have an interception last week.
11/04/13 - --CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) was injured late in the Cowboys game, but will try to practice on Tuesday. When he left the game, the Vikings were without four of their top five defensive backs. Rhodes has been the team's best cornerback, but that's not saying much this year.
10/30/13 - CB Xavier Rhodes is by far the team's most promising young defensive back behind FS Harrison Smith. Rhodes, a rookie first-round draft pick, had a career-high eight tackles and his first tackle for loss in last week's loss to the Packers.
