Minnesota Vikings CB Chris Cook (hip) and S Jamarca Sanford (groin) could play in Week 9 if they do enough in practice Friday, Nov. 1, to convince the coaching staff.

It's a little scary when you start getting into your depth this early in the season." CBs Xavier Rhodes, Marcus Sherels or A.J. Jefferson would start at right cornerback if Cook can't play.
