Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - The Minnesota Vikings are testing the true depth of their roster over the past few weeks, with injuries to their quarterback, running backs, tight end and wide receiver.

Sunday though that depth paid off as the Vikes used several backups in picking up their fourth win of the season, it's an area of the team that largely goes overlooked but has found themselves square in the spotlight for the remainder of the season.

Leslie Frazier/Vikings Head Coach: “Part of it goes back to the work that we do post practice each day with our players. Our coaches staying out afterwards working with our young guys who aren't necessarily starters but we tell them all the time things can change in the National Football League.”

Frazier said he expects Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart back in the lineup against Cincinnati on Sunday.
