Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph unable to practice again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) missed another practice Thursday as the team prepared for Sunday's visit to Miami. Rudolph set season highs with seven catches for 69 yards Week 15 at Detroit.

If Rudolph can't play, Chase Ford would start.


Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph dealing with knee, ankle injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph did not practice Wednesday due to knee and ankle injuries, reports 1500ESPN.com. Rudolph, who had sports hernia surgery earlier this season, is coming off his best game of the year, catching seven passes for 69 yards against Detroit.

If Rudolph can't play Sunday at Miami, Chase Ford would start. Ford has 22 catches for 236 yards and a touchdown in nine games played.


Teddy Bridgewater, Kyle Rudolph finding each other?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and tight end Kyle Rudolph haven't had a lot of opportunities to work together. Bridgewater took over in Week 3, which was also when Rudolph suffered a groin injury that sidelined him for the team's next six games. Week 15 at Detroit, then, was only their fifth game working together. It was also by far their best.

Bridgewater found Rudolph seven times for 69 yards, both representing season highs for the fourth-year tight end. With Bridgewater also throwing for more than 300 yards for the second straight game, maybe it's the start of something.

Then again, two of those catches for 16 of those yards came with the Vikings desperate to get into field goal range with less than a minute to go. The Lions were happy to let Bridgewater dump the ball off underneath, and he obliged. Change Rudolph's line to five catches for 56 yards, and it's ... well, it's still the best he's done with Bridgewater, but it's nothing special.

Wide receiver Charles Johnson has been the greater beneficiary of Bridgewater's emergence -- or perhaps the cause of it. Still, Rudolph remains one of the Vikings' more reliable receiving options, so if Bridgewater keeps putting up numbers, some of them will have to go to his tight end.

This time of year, though, is too late to earn your trust.


Vikings' Kyle Rudolph catches seven passes Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph turned in a solid game Week 15 against the Lions.

Rudolph tied for the team-lead in both receptions and targets, finishing with seven. He finished second on the team in receiving, with 69 yards. It was Rudolph's finest game of the season. While he mostly used as a short-yardage option, he was able to pick up a 21 yard reception in the first quarter. 

Rudolph will take on the Dolphins Week 16.


Kyle Rudolph among probables for Vikings in Week 14


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Vikings unveil lengthy injury report for Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Vikings tight end Chase Ford (hamstring, foot) and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) were all listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Carolina, according to the team's final injury report released Friday. Running back Jerick McKinnon (low back) was deemed doubtful, but told reporters following practice he will not play Week 13.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Safety Harrison Smith (shoulder, ankle), wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), running back Matt Asiata (concussion), tackle Matt Kalil (knee), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin), wide receiver Jarius Wright (hamstring), wide receiver Greg Jennings (rib) and tackle Michael Harris (ankle).


Kyle Rudolph sees role growing in second game back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Vikings eased tight end Kyle Rudolph back into action last week, but he got more involved in the offense in Week 12 against the Packers Sunday.

Rudolph went from zero targets in his first game back to five Sunday, and he ended up second on the team with three receptions for 50 yards, his best showing since Week 2. It will be interesting to see how his snap count usage went, however he was the only tight end on the roster who had more than 15 yards in the game.

That Rudolph would be worked back in slowly while working his way back from surgery is no surprise, but he should have a solid role moving forward. The Vikings need weapons for rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to throw to, so he might lean on Rudolph down the stretch. He is still available in half of CBSSports.com leagues, and might be a solid pick up right now.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
