Newman had two interceptions and four tackles in Sunday's win at Oakland. Newman is the third leading active player with 39 interceptions. His per-play tackle totals are down slightly from last season, but he continues to get plenty of snaps as a starting cornerback at age 37.
Newman (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at Oakland, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports. Newman progressed through the concussion protocol in lockstep with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater this week, setting him to man his normal starting spot at cornerback opposite Xavier Rhodes.
Newman (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Newman, who sustained a concussion in last Sunday's game against the Rams, was able to practice fully Friday and therefore should be available against Oakland this week. The 37-year-old has been starting at corner opposite Xavier Rhodes and could be in line for some IDP consideration with the Raiders likely to throw the ball around often to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
Newman was cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Newman was removed from Sunday's game against the Rams due to a suspected concussion, but after a quick turnaround (and a missed practice Wednesday), a full showing in drills Thursday informed his clean passage through the protocol for head injuries. He'll now get set to suit up opposite Xavier Rhodes in Week 10 at Oakland.
Newman left Sunday's win over St. Louis due to a possible concussion, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He was being evaluated for a concussion after the game. With Newman out, rookie Trae Waynes got more playing time at cornerback.
