Rhodes had an interception and two total tackles in Sunday's 23-10 win over Green Bay. Rhodes' interception came on a lucky bounce rather than as a result of him having been targeted in the passing game. However, he was strong in pass coverage as usual, allowing just four of seven targets to be caught against him for a 26.8 QB rating, according to Pro Football Focus.
Rhodes did not have a pass thrown his way in Monday's win at Chicago. He had one tackle. It was a sign of respect for perhaps the league's best cover corner that rookie Mitchell Trubisky avoided Rhodes in his first career start. Opposing quarterbacks have converted just 12 of 24 targets to receptions against Rhodes this season with a 65.6 QB rating, according to Pro Football Focus.
Rhodes (hip) logged a full practice Wednesday. Rhodes was limited throughout last week at practice due to a hip issue but was able to take the field in a Week 2 loss to the Steelers. The 27-year-old finished the contest with five tackles (four solo) and a pass defended. Although he was injured heading into the game, Rhodes was still on the field for 60 of a possible 74 snaps. Barring a setback, he's on track to play in Week 3.
Rhodes (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Rhodes was limited Thursday and Friday as the Vikings elected to play it safe with their top cornerback's health heading into Week 2, but he'll ultimately be able to play through the hip issue in Pittsburgh. Mackensie Alexander would be next in line for additional snaps across from Trae Waynes if Rhodes were to re-injure his hip.
Rhodes (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. Rhodes logged a full practice Wednesday but was limited Thursday and Friday. He'll likely be available for a tough matchup with wideouts Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. It'll be an upgrade for the entire Pittsburgh offense if the Vikings' top cornerback is absent or even just limited.
