Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes headed to the locker room after the team’s last defensive series. The Vikings, though, list him as probable to return with a heat illness.

Rhodes has not traveled with Saints receiver Michael Thomas. Instead, he has remained at right corner.

The Vikings have limited Drew Brees to 9-of-15 for 71 yards and hold a 19-6 lead midway through the third quarter.
