Frazier said on Vikings.com that Freeman will have to pass the NFL-mandated tests and be evaluated daily.

"We’ll have to proceed as if he’s not going to make it,” said Frazier, pointing to the short week the team has coming off a Monday night game and also the lack of time Freeman has had with the team. "We need to get Christian ready to go."
