In Friday’s vikings.com Mailbag feature, a reader asked if S Jamarca Sanford would receive playing time this weekend over starting S Tyrell Johnson.
The answer I gave was that Johnson would continue to start for the Vikings but that the coaching staff would continue to use Sanford in spot duty. The rookie 7th round draft pick out of Ole Miss has played tremendously on special teams this year and he’s had some excellent moments while playing defense, too.
On Friday after practice, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress affirmed that Sanford, and other key defensive backups, would indeed see playing time on Sunday against Dallas.
“We’ve got a good plan for that,” the Vikings head coach said. “I think rolling guys in and out, getting the most out of all of those guys, waiving as many guys as we can in throughout that whole defense.”
