MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings could have safety Mistral Raymond back in action this weekend.
Raymond hurt his right ankle in the Sept. 23 game against San Francisco and hasn't played since. He has been practicing, however, and coach Leslie Frazier said Monday "it looks that way" for Raymond to be available for Sunday's game at Seattle. Frazier said a final decision will come later in the week.
Jamarca Sanford took over Raymond's starting spot, and he's likely to keep that for now while Raymond is brought back up to speed. But cornerback Chris Cook is out with a broken right arm, so the Vikings can use all the depth they can find in the secondary.
Frazier said Cook's surgery went as expected. He is forecast to miss six to eight weeks.
