MINNEAPOLIS -- For the second consecutive week, the Minnesota Vikings activated only three cornerbacks on Sunday.

Chris Cook and Cedric Griffin went through a pregame workout with trainers, but both were ruled out when the Vikings released their inactive list 90 minutes before kickoff against the Miami Dolphins.

Also inactive for the Vikings: No. 3 quarterback Joe Webb, running back Albert Young, guard Chris DeGeare, defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy, tight end Mickey Shuler and end Everson Griffen.

Receiver Percy Harvin (hip) was active as expected. So was rookie running back Toby Gerhart (knee), who became the first member of the Vikings' 2010 eight-man draft class to make his NFL debut.

Cook, Griffin and Kennedy (knee) all worked out on the field about 2½ hours before kickoff. Cook was wearing a large wrap on his right knee.

Shortly after, Harvin went through a brief workout with Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman. Harvin emerged with a smile on his face but appeared to be favoring his right side as he left the field.

Asher Allen was set to make a second consecutive start at right cornerback.

Inactive for the Dolphins were: No. 3 quarterback Chad Pennington, receiver Roberto Wallace, cornerback Nolan Carroll, linebacker Channing Crowder, end Ikaika Alama-Francis, offensive lineman Jermey Parnell, tackle Lydon Murtha and end Jared Odrick.

To account for the loss of Odrick, the Dolphins started Paul Soliai at nose tackle and moved Randy Starks to right end, his more natural position. Tim Dobbins was to start for Crowder.
