Kendricks has now logged double-digit tackles in three of the previous four games. He was one of three Vikings defenders to play all 75 snaps and figures to continue being heavily involved going forward.
Kendricks had nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 33-16 victory over the Browns.
Kendricks played all 59 defensive snaps and added two pass breakups and a tackle for loss. Minnesota has a bye in Week 9 and will next face the Redskins on the road.
Kendricks notched a team-high 13 tackles (10 solo) against the Ravens on Sunday.
This is the second consecutive game Kendricks has led the Vikings in tackles. However, the first game was against a Packers team that had lost its identity after Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) left the game, and the second game was against a Ravens team that has been wildly inconsistent all season. The good news is that the Vikings have Cleveland on the horizon, so a similar performance should be expected of Kendricks.
Kendricks was limited due to an illness Thursday, but seems ready to go for Monday night's matchup with the Bears. The 25-year-old doesn't have exorbitant tackles numbers yet this season, but he's played all but three defensive snaps for the Vikings defense and should continue seeing ample opportunity.
Kendricks was limited in practice Thursday due to an illness.
Kendricks and safety Andrew Sendejo missed time due illness which will be something to keep an eye on as Monday's tilt with the Bears nears. Should the linebacker miss more time, expect Kentrell Brothers to take over starting responsibilities.
