Waynes recorded three tackles and four passes defensed, including one interception, in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Waynes' four passes defensed more than doubled his season total in the category, and his interception was his first of the year. His play is huge for the Vikings, who are down Mike Hughes (knee) for the season and may be without Xavier Rhodes (foot) in Week 8. Waynes will look to maintain his momentum against the Drew Brees-led Saints' offense Sunday.
Waynes had made it through the league concussion protocol and expects to retake the field Sunday against the Cardinals, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.
Waynes missed last Sunday's game after being knocked out of Week 4's contest with a concussion. Fortunately, it appears he's doing much better and is expected to slot in opposite Xavier Rhodes. Waynes owns 11 tackles (10 solo) through four appearances this season and will look to build on that mark Sunday.
Waynes (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Waynes failed to practice all week while he remains in the league's concussion protocol, and it's unclear how much progress the cornerback has made. Mike Hughes will start at cornerback in Waynes' absence once again.
