Greg Jennings
News
A lengthy Vikings injury report posted Friday for the Week 12 game against visiting Green Bay features four questionable players. They are wide receivers Jarius Wright (hamstring) and Greg Jennings (rib), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) and offensive tackle Matt Kalil (knee).

Injury
Rib - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Green Bay
Ben Tate
News
Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner clarified the team's backfield situation Thursday, and it was good news for rookie Jerick McKinnon. Turner said the team claimed running back Ben Tate because of injuries at the position and that Tate was not brought in to take McKinnon's job.

"Obviously, we're in a situation where [Wednesday] we had one back that could practice, so the timing of [Tate] being released and the opportunity for us to add a back, certainly it was good timing," Turner told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"We're excited about Jerick and what he's done, and I see him as our running back," Turner added.

McKinnon did not practice Wednesday due to a back injury, but is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against the Packers. Running back Matt Asiata's status is in doubt after he suffered a concussion Week 11, Turner told the paper.

Corey Wootton
News
The Vikings have placed 11 players on their Friday injury report, but only two have been deemed worse than questionable. They are ruled-out tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin) and doubtful linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring).

The probables are tight end Chase Ford (foot), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (ankle), cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring), safety Harrison Smith (ankle), center John Sullivan (concussion) and defensive end Corey Wootton (back).

Kyle Rudolph
News
Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was able to practice in full Wednesday.

Rudolph returned to action following groin surgery Week 11, but was only able to play 14 snaps. The fact that he came out of the game healthy is a good sign for Rudolph getting more work moving forward. Rudolph missed six weeks due to the injury.

Jerick McKinnon
News
The Vikings have claimed deposed Browns featured back Ben Tate off waivers in the wake of the suspension that has sidelined Adrian Peterson for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports.

Tate proved disappointing after signing a free agent contract with Cleveland. He expressed dissatisfaction after losing playing time to rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. He had just two carries for minus-9 yards in the Sunday loss to Houston, which led to the Browns placing him on waivers.

Another rookie now stands in his way of significant reps. It remains to be seen how much Tate plays with Minnesota, which has been featuring Jerick McKinnon in the backfield. McKinnon is averaging 4.9 YPC this season. Tate has just 90 yards in his last 53 carries for a 1.7 YPC average during that stretch.

Injury
Low back - Probable for Week 12 vs. Green Bay

The four will take on the Lions Week 6.
