All eyes will be on the star cornerback this week

In what may be the most important, and crucial development heading into the Minnesota Vikings’ Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos, cornerback Xavier Rhodes has passed the NFL’s concussion protocol. The news, announced by head coach Mike Zimmer in a press conference Wednesday morning, paves the way for Rhodes to start this Sunday against one of the league’s most dangerous offenses and receiving corps.

The surprising clearance comes just days after a vicious hit that left Rhodes motionless on the field against the San Diego Chargers. Safety Andrew Sendejo collided with Rhodes while trying to break up a pass to Keenan Allen,  hitting Rhodes’s head and jerking his neck back in the process. When asked how concerned he was about the injury, Zimmer praised his cornerback’s toughness.

“I’m always concerned about my players when they get hurt, but Xav’s pretty tough,” Zimmer said on Monday. “I know he’ll be all right.”

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (2-1) are on to Denver as we invade the undefeated Denver Broncos’ Mile High perch and try to break the stallions in the late game Sunday afternoon. The Purple are 0-3 all-time vs Peyton Manning, while Mike Zimmer is 1-5 against Chicken Parm as a defensive coordinator.

Di Murphy (@DiMurphyMN) of The Daily Norseman stops in to chat about the rekindled Zimmer Hellfire Defense, why Vikings Rubes need to relax on Teddy, how the Bears are a barren wasteland of nothingness that needs to be blown up & rebuilt, and how we both hate/respect the hell out of Aaron Rodgers. (Even though PFF only hate/hates him…)

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings savored a tasty curb stomping of the San Diego Super Chargers 31-14 Sunday afternoon at The Bank. The Purple sealed the win in the second half with a solid running game and dominant defense that completely shut down Philip Rivers and the Bolts. We recap the action in our usual “Not too high/not too low” fashion!
