EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Jacob Lacey will be sidelined until training camp after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated thumb, an NFL source said on Wednesday.

Lacey, 26, signed a one-year, $780,000 contract with the Vikings in April that included a $30,000 signing bonus, plus a $35,000 roster bonus if he spends one week on the 53-man roster.

The 5-10, 177-pound Oklahoma State product was undrafted in 2009. But he made the Indianapolis Colts' roster and appeared in every game as a rookie. In 54 career games with Indianapolis (2009 to '11) and Detroit (2012), Lacey has six interceptions and 25 passes defended.

The surgery is at least a minor setback to Lacey's bid to make the team in a cornerback group topped by Chris Cook, Josh Robinson, Xavier Rhodes and A.J. Jefferson.
