Steeples was promoted
from the Vikings' practice squad Saturday.
With Josh Robinson (chest) out for the season, Xavier Rhodes (ankle) doubtful for Sunday's game, and Chris Cook (knee) questionable, the Vikings are desperate for help at cornerback. If Cook suits up, Steeples may serve as the No. 4 corner, while Cook's absence could potentially force Steeples into a nickel role. Steeples will likely make his first NFL appearance Sunday, and there's a chance that he'll be thrown right into the fire.
