EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Vikings rookie defensive tackle
Head Coach Leslie Frazier said the first-round draft pick probably won't play in either of the two remaining exhibitions but "shouldn't miss any time'' in the regular season."
The starters are expected to play into the third quarter this Sunday at San Francisco, and the plan is to put weak side linebacker
"Just want to get a good view of him in some competitive situations against their top line guys,'' Frazier said.
The Vikings also released cornerback Jacob Lacey a week after his arthroscopic knee surgery.
After three seasons with Indianapolis and one with Detroit, Lacey signed with the Vikings. He had a chance to make the squad with veteran Antoine Winfield no longer on the team. But he was injured early in training camp and didn't play in any preseason games.
Lacey was bothered by a thumb injury before he hurt his knee.
"We'll see how he does in his rehab,'' Frazier said after practice on Monday. "In this business you could always end up back here. You never know."
