Munnerlyn (ankle) is active for Thursday's game in Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

With Terrence Newman (neck) out of commission, Munnerlyn could experience an uptick in snaps, despite Trae Waynes entering the starting lineup. As a result, the potential exists for Munnerlyn to muster more than his typical tackle count (4.0 per game).

Munnerlyn (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Munnerlyn was forced to miss last week's loss to the Redskins due to a sprained ankle, but returned to full participation in practice on Friday, as he entered the weekend with optimism regarding his potential availability. If his reps are at all limited, Trae Waynes could see additional action as the No. 3 cornerback.

Munnerlyn (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, but was able to fully practice Friday. He's optimistic he can play. "It was very frustrating," Munnerlyn told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I had to miss a game. Hopefully I'm back this week, flying around, moving around and making plays."

EDGE Analysis

Munnerlyn missed his first game last week since 2011 due to a sprained ankle. It sounds like he'll return this week, but his playing time could be limited.

The Vikings have downgraded Munnerlyn (ankle) to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Munnerlyn will snap a streak of 40 games played since joining the Vikings, and 72 straight games played overall. As a result, Mackensie Alexander will presumably see an increased role providing depth in the Vikings' secondary.
