Vikings' George Iloka: Expected to start Sunday
Iloka is expected to start at strong safety Sunday against the Cardinals with Andrew Sendejo (groin) already ruled out for the contest, Andrew Kammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Iloka, who signed with the Vikings on Aug. 22, was limited exclusively to a special-teams role until Week 4. Despite his lack of in-game defensive reps this season, he boasts plenty of familiarity with coach Mike Zimmer's scheme from their time in Cincinnati together. The starting assignment could set Iloka up for a decent tackle count Sunday, as Sendejo had averaged 5.4 stops per game through the first five weeks of the season.
