Vikings' Mike Wallace: Misses Monday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mike Wallace did not practice Monday, but it's unclear why that was the case, 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Wallace has now missed two practices open to the media since Minnesota's Week 4 loss to the Broncos. In that game, Wallace played virtually every offensive snap for the Minnesota Vikings , so it's unclear why he's been sidelined recently. Expect clarification on Wallace's situation to surface as this week unfolds.

Vikings' Charles Johnson: Not practicing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charles Johnson (ribs) is not participating in Monday's practice, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Johnson missed the Minnesota Vikings ' Week 4 game due to a rib injury and despite having Minnesota's subsequent bye week to rest and get treatment, the wideout remains sidelined as his team returns to practice this week. As a result, Johnson's status for Sunday's game against the Chiefs is still uncertain, but his practice reports over the course of this week should help clarify his eventual availability.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph held to seven yards in Week 4 loss to Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught two passes off of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's loss to Denver Pioneers .

Rudolph is second on the team with 14 catches on 22 targets, ranking 13th among league tight ends in both categories. Rudolph has thus far failed to deliver on the promise of his 2012 season and with the Vikings apparently set on making Adrian Peterson the bread and butter of their offense again, is not being featured heavily enough to warrant a weekly start.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks could see bigger role in defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After trading Gerald Hodges to the 49ers, Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the team feels good about linebacker Eric Kendricks , 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Hodges had been getting most of the snaps in Minnesota's base defense, with Kendricks replacing him in nickel and dime formations. The rookie may now get a shot at an every-down role, though the Vikings haven't said anything to that effect. If he does take on Hodges' snaps, Kendricks would immediately be a viable IDP in most leagues.

Vikings reportedly trade linebacker Gerald Hodges to 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linebacker Gerald Hodges was traded from the Minnesota Vikings to the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, sources told NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Hodges started three of Minnesota's first four games, but he's only been a part-time player since Week 1, typically coming off the field whenever the Vikings use their nickel defense.

This trade suggests Vikings rookie Eric Kendricks has been deemed ready for a three-down role. Hodges, on the other hand, may get a shot to replace Michael Wilhoite in the 49ers' starting lineup, but a three-down role is probably out of the question.
