Spot player to starter: Gerald Hodges taking the next leap for Vikings

By akrammer@1500espn.com

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Gerald Hodges isn’t telling too many people; he’s not going to have any relatives fly from New Jersey to watch live from TCF Bank Stadium.

Hodges, 23, will get his first NFL start against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon as Chad Greenway has been ruled out with a broken hand and broken rib. Hodges was just a special teams contributor a season ago after the Vikings took him in the fourth round (120th overall) of the 2013 draft.

But he’s keeping low key about his first big opportunity, one he admittedly couldn’t have handled as a rookie.
