Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph could miss a month with broken foot
Christian Ponder remains the Vikings' starting QB but the offense will be without the services of TE Kyle Rudolph, who could be sidelined for as long as a month with a broken foot.
Christian Ponder remains the Vikings' starting quarterback for at least another week, but the offense will be without the services of Kyle Rudolph. The tight end could be sidelined for as long as a month with a broken foot, coach Leslie Frazier announced Monday.
Rudolph, the team's 2012 second-round pick, will likely be replaced in the lineup by John Carlson.
In eight games this season, Rudolph has 30 receptions for 313 yards and three touchdowns. According to ProFootballFocus.com, he ranked as the NFL's 11th best tight end, but that's mostly due to his prowess as a blocker. Meanwhile, FootballOutsiders.com ranks Rudolph 45th, which is a more accurate reflection of Minnesota's woeful passing attack and his role in it.
