Rhodes (groin) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Bears.
The designation comes as somewhat of a surprise, given that Rhodes has toughed out a variety of injuries this season and that the game holds considerable importance for the Vikings' postseason hopes. The shutdown corner's absence leaves Mackensie Alexander to start opposite Tre Waynes versus Chicago.
Rhodes (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Rhodes continues to manage a groin issue sustained during last week's win over the Lions and will attempt to play through the injury for Sunday's must-win game against the Bears. Mackensie Alexander would slot into the starting lineup if Rhodes were to miss any time.
Rhodes (groin) did not practice Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Rhodes sustained a groin injury during last week's win over Detroit, and he hasn't participated in practice since. The veteran will make every effort to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Bears, as it amounts to a must-win game for the Vikings. However, if Rhodes were to miss any time, expect Mackensie Alexander to draw the start at right cornerback.
Rhodes suffered a groin injury during Sunday's 27-9 win over the Lions.
Rhodes picked up a groin issue during the second half of the Week 16 divisional tilt. The veteran's participation in Wednesday's first practice of the week will indicate more about the severity of his injury.
Rhodes will play against the Seahawks on Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Rhodes played limited snaps during Sunday's loss to the Patriots, but now appears to be approaching a full recovery from his lingering hamstring injury. The 28-year-old will work to contain Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
