EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have ruled our four injured starters against New Orleans, linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring), left guard Tom Compton (knee), running back Dalvin Cook (hamstring) and strong safety Andrew Sendejo (groin).

Left tackle Riley Reiff (foot) was listed as doubtful after being held out of practice Friday. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (foot) and nose tackle Linval Joseph (ankle/knee) were listed as questionable for Sunday.

Defensive end Everson Griffen took part in a full week of practice, putting him on track to play for the first time in six weeks after a hiatus for mental health treatment. Coach Mike Zimmer said he hadn’t decided yet whether Griffen would play.

Cook will sit out for the fourth time in five games. Barr, Compton and Rhodes were hurt last week.
