Smoot rejoins team

Vikings starting cornerback Fred Smoot returned to the Vikings today after dealing with the death of his brother who died in a car accident on Nov. 5 in Mississippi.
Smoot was welcomed back by teammates, but he had little to say to reporters.
Although Cedric Griffin did a solid job in his place, the Vikings missed Smoot on the field Sunday in a 23-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Without him, the Packers were able to get Ronyell Whitaker on the field more, and they capitalized on Donald Driver's 82-yard touchdown just before halftime. Had Smoot played, he likely would have lined up at his usual spot, right cornerback, and Griffin would have been on the left side. Then Winfield would have been in the slot, opposite Driver.
