Rhodes (foot) won't carry an injury designation in Sunday's game at Chicago.
Rhodes was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday but showed enough Friday to avoid the questionable tag, and will return following the Vikings' bye as expected. The 28-year-old has been dealing with foot issues for the better part of a month but only missed one game.
Rhodes suited up for Sunday's 24-9 win over the Lions, but the star cornerback has been nursing lingering foot injuries since mid October and hasn't appeared fully healthy when on the field. Minnesota's defense has rebounded strongly in recent weeks, and will benefit from Rhodes' return to full health when they face off against the Packers in Week 11, following the team's bye.
Rhodes (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Rhodes is set to play through both foot and ankle issues Sunday, having been a limited participant in practice throughout the week. If he were to suffer any sort of setback, rookie Holton Hill would be next in line for snaps at cornerback across from Trae Waynes.
Rhodes (foot) tweaked his ankle in practice Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Rhodes was already a limited participant in practice all week, but this news concerning his ankle truly throws his status into question. If the 28-year-old misses time on the field Sunday, rookie Holton Hill would likely see an increase in snaps.
Rhodes (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Rhodes has been a limited participant at practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Saints, and appears on track for a return this week. If the 28-year-old is ultimately ruled out, rookie Holton Hill would again be in line for a heavy workload at cornerback.
