Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Questionable for Sunday's action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhodes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with Carolina, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

With Trae Waynes' sloppy play as of late, the Vikings are anxiously awaiting Rhodes' return to action. The hope is that he'll be available for the big game, but if not, Minnesota is prepared for Waynes and the ageless-wonder Terrence Newman to anchor the secondary Sunday.

Vikings' MyCole Pruitt: Questionable for Sunday's action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pruitt (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Panthers, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

Pruitt's knee has kept him limited throughout this week's practice. There is some speculation that he could play, but the final decision will likely be made in the hours leading up to kickoff.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Peterson had surgery Thursday to repair a torn meniscus, which usually requires 3-to-4 months of recovery. The Vikings haven't officially ruled him out for the season, but if he does actually return, it wouldn't be until the very end of the regular season or the playoffs. Peterson could technically return from injured reserve in Week 12, but it's highly unlikely he'll be ready by that time. Jerick McKinnon is taking over as the starting running back, with Matt Asiata also expected to have a significant role.

Vikings' Stefon Diggs: Doesn't have injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Despite missing Friday's practice with a groin issue, Diggs doesn't have an injury designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Carolina, ESPN's Ben Goessling reports.

This backs up a previous statement by head coach Mike Zimmer, who referred to Diggs' absence as a precautionary measure and said he expects the wideout to play in Sunday's game. Diggs draws a difficult matchup with a Carolina secondary that's getting along just fine without Josh Norman, but it's tough to argue against Minnesota's clear top target, who's coming off back-to-back 100-yard games to start the season.

Vikings' Sharrif Floyd: Out roughly six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Floyd (knee) is expected to miss about six weeks after injuring his meniscus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Floyd had surgery to trim his meniscus this week. Look for Shamar Stephen and Tom Johnson to see some extra time for the next month or so as Floyd recovers.
