Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Another double-digit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks made 14 tackles in Sunday's 40-23 loss to the Falcons.

For the fifth time in six games, Kendricks recorded double-digit tackles, as he's now up to a whopping 67 stops this season. The 2015 second-round pick is a top IDP option, and barring an injury, Kendricks should shatter the career-high 113 tackles he posted back in 2017.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (foot) is not listed on Friday's injury report, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks began the week with back-to-back missed practices, but he doesn't carry any sort of injury designation for Sunday night's contest in Seattle. The 28-year-old has played 100 percent of Minnesota's defensive snaps through four games, and he currently leads the league with 45 total tackles, so the Vikings may have simply been allowing Kendricks some rest. He's an automatic weekly start in IDP formats.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Kendricks has played every snap through four games, so it's unclear when he picked up the foot injury. It's concerning nonetheless, as Kendricks is sharp in coverage and leads the Vikings with 45 tackles -- two for a loss -- this year. If he's unable to play Sunday versus the Seahawks, expect either Todd Davis or Ryan Connelly to fill in.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Leading tackler through four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks recorded a team-high 12 tackles (seven solo) and added a pass defensed in Sunday's 31-23 win over Houston.

Kendricks has opened the season with four consecutive double-digit tackle performances and leads the league with 45 tackles through four weeks. The 28-year-old linebacker should be busy again in Week 5, as Minnesota will try to slow down a high-flying Seahawks offense that's averaging 35.5 points per game.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Shines despite defense's struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had ten total tackles and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

While just about everything went wrong for Minnesota's defense in a 43-34 loss, Kendricks picked up where he left off in last year's All-Pro season. He gave up two receptions on six targets, but for just eight total yards, according to Pro Football Focus.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: All-Pro season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks, who posted 13 tackles and an interception over two playoff games, finished with 110 tackles, 12 pass breakups and two forced fumbles over 15 regular-season games.

Kendricks capped off his fourth straight season with 100-plus tackles, and he posted a career high in pass breakups. The 27-year-old middle linebacker earned first-team All-Pro honors as a result of his impressive campaign. Kendricks is under contract for four more seasons with an average salary of $10 million per year, which shapes up as a major discount if he keeps up this level of production.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's playoff game at New Orleans, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 27-year-old began the week not practicing but put in a full practice session Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Kendricks also received first-team All-Pro honors and will take up his usual starting role versus the Saints.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) is participating in Thursday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks is nursing a quadriceps injury sustained during Week 16's loss to the Packers. Even if the starting linebacker only managed to practice on a limited basis Thursday, the fact that he's resumed any activity is a notable step in the right direction. His chances of suiting up for Sunday's playoff match against the Saints could come down to what he's able, or unable, to do in Friday's practice session.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

This is more negative news for the linebacker, who hasn't practiced or played since suffering the injury in Week 16's loss to Green Bay. Kendricks likely will need to log at least limited practice this week if he wants a chance to play in the Wild Card game against the Saints on Sunday. If he can't go, however, Kentrell Brothers and Eric Wilson would be in line to see an increase in snaps.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Won't face Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Chicago, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Kendricks suffered a quad injury during the first quarter of Week 16's loss to the Packers, and he'll miss Sunday's regular-season finale while working to recover. The star linebacker will target a return to the field in the postseason.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

Kendricks went down with a quad injury during Monday night's loss to Green Bay. It's no surprise that he was thought to have been a DNP during the first practice of a short week, especially after head coach Mike Zimmer said Tuesday that Kendricks underwent an MRI on Tuesday, per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. There seems to be a good chance the linebacker won't be able to play this weekend against Chicago, but Kendricks at least has a couple more days to return to the practice field.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Out with quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks suffered a quad injury Monday night against the Packers and will not return, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

A significant loss for the Vikings defense, as Kendricks exits the contest with two fumble recoveries. Look for more updates on the linebacker's status to come when the team resumes practice later this week. For the remainder of Monday's contest, look for Kentrell Brothers and Eric Wilson to see increased defensive snaps.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (quadriceps) is questionable to return to Monday's game against Green Bay.

Kendricks recovered a fumble from Davante Adams in the second quarter and came up limping in the process. The veteran was seen without his helmet on the sidelines, which is certainly a negative sign for his chances to return. As long as Kendricks is sidelined, look for Kentrell Brothers and Eric Wilson to be the likely beneficiaries to see an uptick in snaps.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Forces fumble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks logged seven tackles (five solo) and forced a fumble in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Kendricks has made seven tackles in back-to-back games. He has no fewer than six in any game this year and needs just four to break his career high of 113.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tallies seven tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Kendricks has at least six tackles in every game this season but hasn't made many big plays. While he is just 10 tackles short of his career-high 113, he has no interceptions and just half a sack on the year.

December 3, 2019 10:52 PM
Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Records 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks piled up 10 tackles (four solo) in Monday's loss to the Seahawks.

Kendricks reached double-digit tackles for the fourth time this year. The middle linebacker is currently on pace for 128 tackles, comfortably the highest total on the Vikings' defense, and has proven to be a fairly consistent performer week in and week out. He will look to keep it rolling against the Lions in Week 14.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tallies 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 12 tackles (six solo) and two passes defensed during Sunday's win over the Lions.

Kendricks has now reached double-digit tackles in three of the last four games and also has three straight games with two pass breakups. The 27-year-old has been a dependable IDP option with 61 tackles (44 solo), a half-sack and a forced fumble through seven games.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Ten total tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 10 total tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1.5 tackles for a loss, a QB hit and had two passes defensed in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Kendricks has been averaging slightly more tackles this year (8.2 per game compared to 7.7 last season), while rating well in pass coverage. He's never been a big contributor in the pass rush despite Sunday's output, however, with one sack each of the last two seasons.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Leads game in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks recorded a game-high 12 total tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to Chicago.

Kendricks was present for all 72 of the defense's snaps and even saw the field for five snaps on special teams. The 27-year-old has been solid for Minnesota so far this season, racking up 33 total tackles and three pass breakups over the first four games.

September 11, 2019 12:40 PM
Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Six tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had six total tackles, defended two passes and had a quarterback hit in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

He played on 68 of the defense's 74 snaps, as some of the starters got rest late in a blowout win. He'll be a good source of tackles again as the starting middle linebacker who stays on the field in passing situations.
