Rhodes (hip) logged a full practice Wednesday.
Rhodes was limited throughout last week at practice due to a hip issue, but was ultimately 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 any setbacks, he is 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.
Rhodes (hip) was a limited participant in Friday's practice.
Rhodes was limited in practice for the second straight day, but there is still no report as to what his status for Sunday's game against the Steelers. The cornerback should be considered a game-time decision until the Vikings can provide a more specific update.
Rhodes had four total tackles in Sunday's win over the Saints. He played 43 of 62 snaps on defense, as he briefly left due to a "hydration issue," Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Luckily the sight of Rhodes heading for the locker room during the game didn't indicate an injury. He'll likely be back to full speed next week as one of the league's top cover corners.
