The Minnesota Vikings will be without at least three more starters on Thursday night when they face the Washington Redskins. 

Wednesday's injury report ruled cornerback Chris Cook (hip) and safety Jamarca Sanford (groin) out. Defensive tackle Letroy Guion (shoulder) is doubtful. Tight end Kyle Rudolph will miss the first game of his 4-6 week recovery from a broken foot he suffered on Sunday. 

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (knee) is probable and will likely start alongside cornerback Josh Robinson (chest), who is also probable. Safety Mistral Raymond will start in place of Sanford again, rotating with safety Robert Blanton

Defensive tackle Fred Evans (knee) is also out, meaning Chase Baker is likely in for an expanded role. Baker debuted on defense last week and played 11 snaps. 

Running back Matt Asiata (personal) will miss his second game in a row. Tight end Rhett Ellison (ankle) is questionable. 

Right tackle Phil Loadholt (concussion) is out and swing tackle J'Marcus Webb will start in his place. Left guard Charlie Johnson (elbow) is doubtful. Reserve lineman Joe Berger worked in his spot this week during practice. It's likely rookie guard Jeff Baca will be active on Thursday for the first time in his career for depth along the interior.
