The Vikings time with George Iloka has been an interesting one.
As he was signed off of waivers following a dismissal from Cincinnati there were some thoughts that he would come right on into Minnesota and start off the bat besides Harrison Smith. Well, today he gets that shot.
With Andrew Sendejo ruled out due to a groin injury that has kept him out of practice all week long, according to reports from Adam Schefter it will be Iloka over Jayron Kearse getting the start against the Cardinals.
To date, it has been Kearse getting more of the snaps with three safeties or if a temporary need arose. According to this designation though, it would appear as if Iloka is up to speed and gaining favor in the eyes of the coaching staff.
