EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings (1-4) will be without safety Harrison Smith for the first of at least eight games on Monday night when they face the New York Giants (0-6).
Lacey, 26, participated in the Vikings' offseason routine and training camp before getting released on Aug. 19. His familiarity with the defensive system and coaches will allow him to jump into things more easily, though he'll likely be the fifth option at cornerback behind Marcus Sherels on Monday.
Frazier said he didn't see any lingering effects from the minor knee surgery Lacey had during training camp.
With linebacker Desmond Bishop gone for the year to a torn ACL, rookie linebacker Gerald Hodges said he'll be active for the second game of his career on Monday.
Receiver Rodney Smith, who was just upgraded to the 53-man roster this week, will be inactive as he missed practice on Saturday.
Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle) and defensive tackle Kevin Williams (knee) have been the only other limited participants all week for the Vikings, but both will play their regular roles against the Giants.
