Struggling Vikings CB Rhodes sorry for sideline helmet slam

Vikings coach says he hasn’t given up on Griffin

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes has apologized for his lack of discipline in the previous game. He twice slammed his helmet to the ground on the sideline after giving up a long touchdown pass to Seattle. Rhodes took the blame for a blown assignment during the 60-yard score in the third quarter. He also aided an earlier scoring drive for the Seahawks with a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty. The Vikings lost 37-30, the most points they’ve allowed in 24 games, but coach Mike Zimmer expressed confidence this week that the recently struggling pass coverage is on track for recovery.
