Cole will start at middle linebacker Sunday against Detroit with Eric Kendricks inactive due to a concussion.
Cole will not see the bulk of snaps however, as Chad Greenway will likely stay on the field in nickel and dime situations with Cole sitting out. Cole may not be an ideal IDP replacement for Kendricks as a result.
Cole is likely to start at middle linebacker with Eric Kendricks ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit with a concussion, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Cole may not see the bulk of snaps however, as Chad Greenway may stay on the field in nickel and dime situations with Cole sitting out. It's also possible Emmanuel Lamur could get snaps at middle linebacker. Cole may not be an ideal IDP replacement for Kendricks as a result.
Audie Cole (ankle) signed a one-year contract to stay with the Minnesota Vikings , FOX Sports North reports.
Cole had just three tackles in seven games during the 2015 season, but he did start in Week 9 against the Rams in place of an injured Eric Kendricks. Cole broke his ankle during that game, ending his season prematurely. His biggest 2016 impact may come on special teams.
