Vikings FS Andrew Sendejo (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a good sign that he's practicing, but Sendejo will have to clear the league's protocol in order to play Sunday at Philadelphia. If he's unable to go, Anthony Harris would draw the start at free safety.

Vikings FS Andrew Sendejo is in the concussion protocol and will not return to Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Saints.

NFL suspended Vikings FS Andrew Sendejo one game for violating the league's player safety rules.

Sendejo illegally hit Mike Wallace on Sunday, giving him a concussion. Sendejo was previously fined earlier this season for a big hit on Cameron Brate, so the suspension is next in line after a fine. Sendejo will probably appeal. For now, he's out for Week 8 in London against Cleveland. The Vikings then have a Week 9 bye before coming back stateside for a road date in Washington.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson does not expect the Vikings to name the starting safety opposite Harrison Smith until late in camp.

"It’ll come down to the games," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. Andrew Sendejo and veteran Michael Griffin are the two front-runners, but Tomasson reports Antone Exum is getting a "long look" as well. Vikings.com's Mike Wobschall believes the job is Sendejo's to lose.

Vikings.com's Mike Wobschall believes the starting safety spot next to Harrison Smith is Andrew Sendejo's to lose.

Sendejo looked like the locked-in starter after the Vikings gave him a four-year, $16 million deal in March, but that changed when they added Michael Griffin four days later. Sendejo has held off the veteran to this point, but his grip on the starting spot is tenuous entering camp. Antone Exum is also in the mix.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo could lose his starting job.

The Vikings are making Sendejo compete despite giving him a four-year offseason extension. Sendejo has been getting the majority of first-team reps, but Michael Griffin and 2015 UDFA Anthony Harris are in the mix for snaps. Even if he starts, Sendejo shouldn’t have a full-time role.
