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.
