Breeland (illness) didn't participate in Thursday's practice. If Breeland doesn't get back to practice Friday, he'll be in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Browns. The 29-year-old cornerback has struggled in coverage this year, allowing 195 yards and two touchdowns through two games. Mackensie Alexander would likely shift from nickel corner to the outside if Breeland misses time.
Breeland (back/shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, according to the Vikings' official Twitter account. After logging a limited practice Wednesday, Breeland was upgraded to a full participant for Thursday's practice. Through two weeks, the 29-year-old cornerback has recorded 11 total sacks and one forced fumble. It appears Breeland will likely be ready to go in Week 3 when the Vikings square off against the Seahawks.
Breeland (back/shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports. Breeland has operated as a starter for Minnesota through the first two weeks of the season, but it appears he's gotten banged up while taking on such a large workload. With questions about the quality of Breeland's coverage also having come up, any missed time on the veteran's part could open up opportunities for the likes of Mackensie Alexander and Cameron Dantzler to push for increased reps.
Breeland is listed as a starter opposite Patrick Peterson at cornerback on Minnesota's first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. He's competing with Mackensie Alexander and Cameron Dantzler for a starting role, but all three should get significant snaps. Alexander is likely to be the nickelback with Dantlzer and Breeland working outside. Breeland gave up a 90.0 NFL passer rating in coverage last year, according to Pro Football Focus, but adds a needed veteran presence to a young secondary that struggled last season.
Breeland (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills. Breeland will have to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before being able to suit up, including getting the all-clear from an independent neurologist. With Rashad Fenton (foot) also questionable, the Chiefs could be without two reserve cornerbacks Sunday.
