Harrison Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Smith sustained the injury early in last week's loss to Green Bay, but he played through the ailment for the better part of the contest. Despite practicing Friday, Smith has been ruled out, so the Minnesota Vikings will likely turn to Antone Exum Jr. to fill the void.
Harrison Smith (knee) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable against Atlanta, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects him to play, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Smith hurt his knee early in last week's loss to Green Bay but was able to play a full game. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but it sounds like he just needed some rest. Still, check to make sure he's active Sunday.

Smith also levied a hard hit on Colin Kaepernick during a run, but otherwise had a quiet game. Smith had three sacks and five interceptions last season, so he'll have more disruptive games.
Picking up Smith's option was a simple one for the Vikings, as he picked up 92 tackles and grabbed five interceptions for Minnesota last season. He's scheduled to make $5.278 million next year.
Kalil was a more difficult decision, as the former No. 4 pick has struggled after a strong start. His salary would be over $11 million in 2016.
