News | Minnesota Vikings –

Terence Newman, Anthony Harris Starting at Safety

Veteran CB Terence Newman will slide over to safety tonight, due to the rash of injuries the Vikings have suffered at the position in recent weeks.

Four key defensive players – S Harrison Smith, S Andrew Sendejo, LB Anthony Barr, and DT Linval Joseph – were ruled out on Wednesday. Additionally, S Antone Exum Jr. was placed on Injured Reserve this week, which resulted in the signing of free agent S Shaun Prater and practice squad S Anthony Harris being signed to the 53-man roster.

Harris will make his first career start at safety along side Newman, while rookie CB Trae Waynes makes his first career start at cornerback in place of Newman.

S Robert Blanton, who was questionable with a knee injury, is active. 

LB Edmond Robinson will start in place of Barr, while DT Tom Johnson replaces Joseph at DT.

Here is the full list of Vikings' inactives:
