Vikings release injured cornerback Jacob Lacey

Posted:

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have released cornerback Jacob Lacey a week after his arthroscopic knee surgery.

After three seasons with Indianapolis and one with Detroit, Lacey signed with the Vikings. He had a legitimate chance to make the squad with veteran Antoine Winfield no longer on the team. But he was injured early in training camp and didn't play in any exhibition games.

Chris Cook and Josh Robinson are the first team cornerbacks, with Robinson moving inside to the slot position in the nickel defense and rookie Xavier Rhodes entering as the third cornerback. Others competing for backup spots are A.J. Jefferson, Bobby Felder, Marcus Sherels and Brandon Burton.
