  • Vikings' Chris Herndon: No targets in Sunday's loss

    Herndon didn't record a target during Sunday's 34-26 loss to the 49ers.

    Herndon didn't record a target for the second consecutive game and played just eight offensive snaps, his lowest total since Week 9. As long as Tyler Conklin is healthy, it doesn't appear like Herndon will have much of a role in Minnesota's passing game.

  • Vikings' Chris Herndon: Has one reception Sunday

    Herndon had one reception for 14 yards on two targets in Sunday's win at the Chargers.

    Herndon tied for a season-high 23 snaps on offense, as he's usually been a non-factor in the passing game. He also had a bad drop during the game, so it doesn't appear he'll have a significant role in the air attack as long as Tyler Conklin is healthy.

  • Vikings' Chris Herndon: Catches first Vikings touchdown

    Herndon caught a two-yard touchdown on his only target in Sunday's win at Carolina.

    It was Herndon's first catch of the season and only his third target, as he's had a near non-existent role on offense despite the touchdown. However, he played on a season-high 24 of the offense's 89 snaps, which could indicate his role may grow.

  • Vikings' Chris Herndon: No offensive role

    Herndon was on the field for only seven of the Vikings' 67 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.

    Herndon has not surpassed 12 offensive snaps in any game this season, though Sunday was his lowest mark of the campaign. He has yet to log a reception with his new team, and he has slipped behind both Tyler Conklin and Ben Ellefson in terms of involvement in the offense.

  • Vikings' Chris Herndon: Plays just 12 snaps

    Herndon did not have a target and played just 12 snaps on offense in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

    Herndon also played 12 snaps Week 1 but had two targets. Meanwhile, Ben Ellefson played 16 snaps. Tyler Conklin had two receptions and played 49 snaps as the clear top tight end with Irv Smith out for the season with a knee injury. Herndon's role could grow, but there's no sign yet that he could be a significant part of the passing game.
