    No point in worrying about it yet. I think both will be fine by game time.

    I sure hope so. They both played very well vs. the Lions. I hope they both have pro bowl years.

    I'm more worried about CT STILL being limited in practice.

    Anyways, I see Smith and Sharper playing. The Chiefs game could get ugly if we have Doss and Tank back there.

    Oh yeah
    I am sure these guys will be playing, should be an interesting side-story for the game itself.

    Doss and Tank are probably the best 2nd team safeties in the league.

    Best i can think of right now, both young and talented, the only thing that hampered them was injuries.

    They're a good pair of athletes and safeties should know how to play a deep zone in a cover 2. Hell i could tell where they need to be in a base cover 2. As long as they know the terminology and playbook they will be a good set of backups, if need be.

    Doss played for Frazier in Indy, so no worries there.
    If Tank has to play, I would be extra worried about our pass defense this week.
    Luckily we are not facing a strong passing attack this week.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    How much playing time has either of these two seen in a regular season game as Vikings?

    Zero for Doss and very little for Tank.

    How is that enough time to make that kind of a statement?
