Minnesota Vikings WR Joe Webb (concussion) and CB Xavier Rhodes (concussion) both passed the first stage of the concussion program, according to head coach Leslie Fraizer.
Huddle Up: This is important for a defense that has been generous to opposing passing games this season. If Rhodes can go, the pass defense might be passable against the Bears.

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes has been the standout on defense in the first week of camp. He can be physical in press coverage, he has recovery speed in case a receiver gets past him and he reads and reacts well in the run game and in space while dropping into a zone.
Huddle Up: Rhodes has the athleticism to make plays, and as a rookie in the NFC North he'll be tested plenty by the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler, and Matthew Stafford. There's some IDP potential there based on the sheer volume of opportunities Rhodes should have to make picks... and tackles.
