  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Sidelined for Week 18

    Kendricks (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Bears after the Vikings didn't reinstate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 18 roster moves, Will Ragatz of SI.com reports. Minnesota is expected to turn to Nick Vigil and Blake Lynch to handle near-every down roles at linebacker with Kendricks out of the lineup. The 29-year-old finishes out his seventh NFL campaign with a career-high 143 tackles and five sacks to go with two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Expected to play Sunday

    Coach Mike Zimmer said he expects Kendricks (illness) to play Sunday against the Bears, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The star linebacker has totaled 143 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions across 15 appearances this season.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Goes on COVID-19 list

    The Vikings placed Kendricks on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports. Kendricks was one of five Vikings to head to the list Monday, with three starters on the offensive line (tackles Christian Darrisaw and Brian O'Neill and left guard Ezra Cleveland) and reserve defensive back Camryn Bynum joining him. The star linebacker is coming off a nine-tackle outing in Sunday's loss to the Packers, bringing his total up for 143 through 15 games. Due to the timing of his placement on the list, Kendricks will have a chance to be cleared ahead of this weekend's regular-season finale against the Bears as soon as he's asymptomatic or able to test negative on two occasions at least 24 hours apart.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Taken off injury report

    Kendricks (back) was removed from Minnesota's injury report Thursday. Kendricks was limited in practice Wednesday, but he's evidently no longer bothered by the injury. The veteran linebacker should be good to go for Sunday's home game against the Rams.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Limited Wednesday

    Kendricks (back) was a limited participant in a walkthrough practice Wednesday. Kendricks was able to play Monday against the Bears with the same injury, so it's hard to gauge how much this impacts his availability for Sunday against the Rams. If Kendricks does miss, Troy Dye will likely be looking at extra opportunity.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Leading tackler in Thursday's win

    Kendricks racked up 11 tackles (five solo), two tackles for loss and a sack in Thursday's 36-28 win over the Steelers. Kendricks stuffed the stat sheet in the high-scoring win, pacing his team in tackles and notching one of Minnesota's five sacks of Ben Roethlisberger. He didn't look limited in any way, suggesting the biceps injury that kept Kendricks out of the Week 13 loss to the Lions is no longer bothering him.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Looks ready to play Thursday

    Kendricks (biceps) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice. Kendricks thus looks on track to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Steelers, after a biceps injury caused him to miss his first contest of the season Week 13 in a 29-27 loss to the Lions. When healthy this season, Kendricks has been one of the top IDP producers at linebacker. He's averaging 9.9 tackles per game and has tallied four sacks, two interceptions and one fumble recovery.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Ruled out against Detroit

    Kendricks (biceps ) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit. Kendricks suffered the injury in a Week 12 loss to the 49ers. He logged two limited practices -- one of which came Friday -- though that won't be enough for him to take the field Sunday against the Lions. Kendricks' absence will leave a void in the middle of the Vikings defense, which Troy Dye will likely be tasked will trying to fill.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Limited with biceps injury

    Kendricks (biceps) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports. Minnesota held a walk-through, but Kendricks would have been limited had the team gone through practice. There's little reason for concern regarding Kendricks' status for Sunday's game, so expect him to be on the field against Detroit. With 109 tackles through 11 games, the standout linebacker has already reached triple digits for the sixth consecutive season.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Manages sack vs. Panthers

    Kendricks had five tackles (three solo), one sack and one pass breakup during Sunday's overtime win over the Panthers. Kendricks turned in his worst performance of the year as a run stopper against Sam Darnold and company, but he made up for it by filling up the IDP stat sheet elsewhere. The veteran linebacker has yet to miss a defensive snap this season and remains a high-end fantasy asset. His next matchup will come Oct. 31 versus the Cowboys.

    Kendricks notched eight tackles (one solo), one pass breakup and one interception during Sunday's 19-17 win over the Lions.

His turnover was a key play in Minnesota's narrow divisional win and helped to supplement the standout linebacker's fantasy performance. Sunday's victory was Kendricks' first game of the season without double-digit stops.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Playing Week 2

    Kendricks (quadriceps) is listed as active Sunday at Arizona. Kendricks made a sudden appearance on the Week 2 injury report Thursday with a quad issue, and while he put in a full session Friday, he still entered the weekend with a question hanging over his status. Now that the Vikings have confirmed his availability, he should handle the majority of the snaps in the middle of the defense, which amounted to a whopping 15 tackles in the team's season-opening loss in Cincinnati.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Won't suit up for finale

    Kendricks (calf) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions.

The 28-year-old wrapped up the campaign with 107 tackles over his 11 appearances. When he earned an All-Pro nod last season, Kendricks had only three more tackles over the course of a 15-game sample. The star linebacker remains under contract with Minnesota through 2023, but he's played for the last time this season.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Listed as DNP

    Kendricks (calf) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice. Kendricks has sat out four straight games with this injury, and he's trending toward missing the season finale. The Vikings are out of playoff contention, so they'll likely be cautious with regards to Kendricks' status for Sunday's game against the Lions. Blake Lynch is expected to start in Kendricks' place if he's ruled out again.

  • Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Out again Friday

    Kendricks (calf) has been ruled out for Friday's clash with New Orleans. Kendricks was again unable to practice this week, as has been the case since he first injured his calf during pregame warmups in early December. As a result, the linebacker will miss his fourth straight contest. Todd Davis (ribs) has been filling in during Kendricks' absence, but with Davis listed as doubtful for Friday, Minnesota's linebacker corps could have a tough time slowing down Alvin Kamara and the rest of the Saints on Christmas Day.
