MANKATO, Minn. - Captain Munnerlyn has watched from the sideline as Josh Robinson fills in for him as the outside cornerback in the Minnesota Vikings base defense.

But Munnerlyn isn't conceding anything, even though he'll have to wait until at least Wednesday to come off the physically unable to perform list with a hamstring injury.

"I'm a starting corner," Munnerlyn said. "I'm never going to sell myself short and say just in nickel. I feel like I'm a starting corner. I can be that guy on the outside."

That assimilation into the Vikings defense has been put on hold after Munnerlyn felt tightness in his leg while working out in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama.

Munnerlyn said that tightness continued after the team's pre-camp conditioning test.

"It didn't feel right," he said. "I kept going and after finishing, I walked to the training room and told them something doesn't feel right."

Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) has sat out every training camp practice so far, including Monday morning's walkthrough. Patterson will work individually during the team's night practice at Blakeslee Stadium, with his earliest return to team drills on Wednesday, per Zimmer.

Patterson also said he strained his foot "over training" while in Los Angeles during the off period.

Munnerlyn will test out the hamstring during the team's off day on Tuesday, per Zimmer.

"I think [Munnerlyn] is real close," Zimmer said. "It won't be long."
