MANKATO, MINN. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier says cornerback Cedric Griffin definitely will miss the season opener against New Orleans while he recovers from offseason knee surgery.

Griffin tore the ACL in his left knee in the NFC title game against the Saints in January. Most expected that Griffin would miss at least the start of the season and Frazier confirmed that on Monday.

Veterans Lito Sheppard and Benny Sapp are the early favorites to replace him in the starting lineup.
