Clearly the Vikings have problems that go far beyond the issue of which QB will start on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
The team will be without three starters in their secondary against Tony Romo according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
Cornerback Chris Cook has been ruled out with a hip injury and strong safety Jamarca Sanford will miss the game with a groin injury.
The team was already without starting free safety Harrison Smith, who is on the injured reserve/designated to return list with severe turf toe.
Cook, who is the Vikings’ best cornerback, expects to return for their scheduled tilt with the Washington Redskins in Week 10.
Considering that Minnesota was pretty brutal defending against the pass even before they lost three quarters of their starting secondary, fantasy owners with Tony Romo in their lineup should have a field day on Sunday.
