Kearse played 22 snaps on defense Sunday and got time at nickelback with Mackensie Alexander (ankle) and Trae Waynes (knee) sidelined.

Kearse is a safety, but his flexibility to play some cornerback in a pinch is a beneficial asset to Minnesota's defense. He'll likely return to a reserve role this week, as the Vikings will likely make another cornerback active for the game.
