Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Tremendous in Week 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes had one solo tackle, two defended passes and two interceptions (one of which he returned for a touchdown) during Sunday's 36-7 win over the Jets.

Rhodes got off to a hot start Week 3, picking off Sam Darnold for a 44-yard return score on New York's first drive. His second interception of the day came with Darnold driving in the red zone, essentially ending any chance of a Jets comeback. The veteran cornerback secured AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors due to his standout performance, and he'll now look to keep up his momentum against Nick Foles in Chicago.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Healthy entering Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (leg) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Rhodes sat out the second half of Sunday's win over the Vikings due to leg cramps, but he's no longer bothered by any notable injuries. The veteran cornerback looks on track to start Week 3 against the Jets.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes dealt with leg cramps and didn't suit up in the second half of Sunday's game against Minnesota, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Rhodes was essentially a nonfactor despite suiting up in the first half, only supplying one pass break-up in Sunday's win. Luckily it appears Rhodes avoided serious injury, but the team could take a cautious approach with the veteran heading into Week 3.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Struggles in pass coverage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes had two total tackles in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. He gave up three receptions on three targets, including a touchdown, and a NFL Passer rating against of 152.1, according to Pro Football Focus.

Rhodes went from perhaps the top cover corner in the league in his prime with the Vikings to a major liability in coverage and finished the 2019 campaign with zero interceptions and six pass defenses in 15 games. He signed a one-year deal with the Colts hoping to turn his career around, but the results from his first game were not promising.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Back to work Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (illness) returned to Wednesday's practice as a full participant, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Rhodes was feeling under the weather for Tuesday's practice and had to sit home as a precaution. Now healthy and back at practice, the veteran cornerback has a decent chance to secure a starting role in 2020 with his main competition coming from Rock Ya-Sin.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Stays home Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (illness) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Rhodes was feeling under the weather, so the Colts told him to stay home as a precaution. The veteran cornerback has a decent chance to secure a starting role in 2020 with his main competition coming from Rock Ya-Sin. His first focus will be getting back on the field.

Colts' Xavier Rhodes: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes is signing a one-year contract with Indianapolis, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

A 2013 first-round pick, Rhodes started 97 of 104 games for Minnesota the past seven seasons, earning Pro Bowl nods in 2016, 2017 and 2019. The last one was solely a product of name recognition, as Rhodes became a major liability in coverage and finished the 2019 campaign with zero interceptions and six pass defenses in 15 games. The Vikings cut him two weeks ago, backing out after the third season of a five-year, $70.1 million contract. The soon-to-be 30-year-old now has a nice opportunity to revive his career in Indianapolis, where the recent release of Pierre Desir leaves a vacancy at one of the starting cornerback spots. Given the current roster construction, the favorites for CB snaps in Indianapolis are Rhodes, Kenny Moore (ankle) and Rock Ya-Sin, though only Moore appears truly locked in.

Xavier Rhodes: Time in Minnesota over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings released Rhodes on Friday, Mike Tannenbaum of ESPN reports.

Rhodes was scheduled to draw a salary of $10.5 million in 2020, and his release instead frees up $7.5 million in much-needed cap space for Minnesota. A former shutdown cornerback, Rhodes saw his coverage efficiency take a significant step back in 2019. The career-high 63 tackles (54 solo) he accumulated across 15 regular-season contests last season, despite providing a welcome boost to his IDP value, serve as an indication of opposing teams' increasing willingness to target Rhodes in the passing game. Expect the 29-year-old to command significant interest as a free agent, but his best days may be behind him.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: No interceptions in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes recorded 63 tackles (54 solo), six pass breakups and one forced fumble across 15 regular-season contests in 2019. He added 10 tackles (seven solo) and two pass breakups in the Vikings' two playoff games.

The veteran cornerback set a career high in tackles in 2019 as opposing teams became more willing to throw his way, a statistic representative of Rhodes' diminishing effectiveness in coverage. The Vikings could save up to $10.5 million in 2020 should they elect to cut Rhodes loose.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Rhodes saw limited playing time during Week 15's win over the Chargers due to a calf injury, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the veteran cornerback looks set for his usual key role in Minnesota's secondary during Monday's crucial contest against the Packers.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Calf injury lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes' playing time was limited during Sunday's win over the Chargers due to a calf injury, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Rhodes briefly exited Sunday's contest due to a calf injury and was deemed questionable to return, but he managed to retake the field to start the second half. The veteran cornerback was still limited at that point, though, and he finished the contest with a single solo tackle on a season-low 14 defensive snaps (23 percent). As long as Rhodes is limited or unable to go, Mike Hughes stands to play an expanded role in Minnesota's secondary.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Back from calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (calf) is back on the field to start the second half, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Rhodes was deemed questionable to return after exiting with the injury during the first half, but he's ready to go after receiving some treatment.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Leaves with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes suffered a calf injury during Sunday's game against the Chargers, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Rhodes had one solo tackle prior to going down with the injury. In the meantime, Mike Hughes should see an increased role at cornerback.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Rhodes will avoid missing his first game of the season, and he's expected to resume his starting cornerback role. There have been concerns about Rhodes in coverage this year, as he's allowed 9.7 yards per target and four touchdowns.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Chargers.

Rhodes is nursing an ankle injury picked up during Week 14's tilt against the Lions. He looks on track to suit up in Los Angeles on Sunday, though Mackensie Alexander and Mike Hughes could see increased snaps if the veteran cornerback is limited at all.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

A limited designation this early in the week isn't at all surprising for Rhodes, who should remain on track to gear up Sunday against the Chargers as long as he avoids any setbacks.

December 10, 2019 12:12 PM
Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Receives positive injury news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Zimmer said Rhodes (ankle) should be able to play Week 15 against the Chargers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Rhodes left this past Sunday's 20-7 win over the Lions in the third quarter and ended up with just 29 of 65 defensive snaps (41 percent). The veteran cornerback will likely be monitored closely during the upcoming practice week. Rhodes has struggled at times in coverage this year, allowing 9.7 yards per target and four touchdowns. If he's unable to play against the Chargers, Mackensie Alexander and Mike Hughes (oblique), if healthy, will see hefty upticks in usage.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

Rhodes picked up the injury in the third quarter, when he was clipped by Harrison Smith on his interception. As long as Rhodes is sidelined, look for Mike Hughes and Mackensie Alexander to see an uptick in snaps.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes has passed concussion protocol testing and is cleared to return to Thursday's game against Washington, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Rhodes will return to the action following a brief stint in the medical tent after he lowered his helmet tackling Jeremy Sprinkle. However, the head injury will be something to take into account when the team returns to practice next week.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes is being evaluated for a concussion, and his return to Thursday's game against the Redskins is considered questionable.

Rhodes had to go to the medical tent after lowering his helmet in an attempt to tackle tight end Jeremy Sprinkle. Losing the star cornerback for any prolonged period would be a massive blow to Minnesota's defense.
