Kyle Rudolph sees role growing in second game back
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph picks up 50 yards
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph picked up 50 yards against the Packers Week 12.

Rudolph pulled down three passes during the game. He was targeted five times. The Vikings had trouble getting things going in the passing game, which led to Rudolph finishing second on the team in receiving despite the average day. 

Rudolph will look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The team will also have Anthony Barr, Scott Crichton, Everson Griffen, Michael Harris, Captain Munnerlyn, Xavier Rhodes and Kyle Rudolph. All seven came into the game listed as probable, and were always expected to play.

Eight probables pepper injury report posted by Vikings
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A first glance at the injury report produced Friday by the Vikings for their Week 12 game against Green Bay might lead one to believe that many will be among the missing. But a closer look reveals eight probables among the 13 players listed.

That group includes seven who are ailing. They are running back Jerick McKinnon (lower back), offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), defensive ends Scott Crichton (hip) and Everson Griffen (neck) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin).

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph able to practice in full Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.
