Leslie Frazier happy with Sharrif Floyd recovery

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says that defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is fit enough to play tomorrow.

Leslie Frazier has revealed that Sharrif Floyd is expected to play in the Minnesota Vikings' opening game of the 2013 NFL season.

The defensive tackle, who was one of three first-round Draft picks for the Vikings this year, missed the second half of the pre-season with a knee injury.

The head coach told reporters: "I think he's ready. He had a good week of practice, hasn't shown any adverse effects from that injury. He's done everything we've asked him to do so we're going to let him go.

"We expected to play him in this game based on some of the things we had seen over the spring along with training camp. He had done a good job prior to his injury so we were confident with what he was able to do.

"Now when the injury came, we had to kind of get back in the rotation and see how he would do. But he's doing fine. It was part of the plan to always play him and play him a number of snaps in this ball game."

The Vikings play the Detroit Lions tomorrow.
