CB Josh Robinson has been one of the more dramatic turn around success stories under Mike Zimmer's new defensive scheme. Robinson was one of the worst CB's not only on the Vikings, but quite possibly in the NFL last year. This year, even with the development of Xavier Rhodes and the signing of Captain Munnerlyn, he is arguably the best and most consistent CB the Vikings have this year.

But it looks like the Vikings will be without his services against the Tampa bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Multiple sources are indicating that Robinson will be doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bucs, so, look for a rookie to take most of those snaps in his absence:

In other news, now that both John Sullivan (concussion) and Vlad Ducasse (knee) are healthy, the Vikings can afford to make some long awaited tweaks on the offensive line. It appears that they have done just that:

So it looks like Berger will take over for Ducasse at right guard, but the rest of the line will remain intact.
