Cole will make a second consecutive start at middle linebacker after Erin Henderson's recent arrest on charges of drunken driving and possession of a controlled substance, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Cole had 13 total tackles and a sack in his first career start last week. Frazier said Henderson won't move to weak-side linebacker, but it sounds like Cole may keep the starting job the rest of the season.
Cole had 13 total tackles and a sack in Sunday's tie with Green Bay. He drew praise from the coaching staff and may have earned more playing time, even when Erin Henderson returns from a personal issue. "[Audie] did some things to make you take a hard look at where we are," head coach Leslie Frazier told the KFAN Minneapolis 100.3 FM.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Cole is expected to serve as a backup at middle linebacker to the newly acquired Desmond Bishop.

2012

Cole, Minnesota's 2012 seventh-round draft pick, was a Butkus Award semifinalist last season with 108 tackles and 5.5 sacks for N.C. State. He could win a backup role this summer, but it's not clear if he has the speed to eventually win a starting job.
