Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's minicamp practice, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He had previously been seen taking part only in rehab work this spring.

Kendricks missed the final five games of last season with a calf injury, but he looks like he's back to full strength ahead of training camp. The linebacker was in the midst of a strong season before the injury, recording 107 tackles over his 11 appearances.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Won't suit up for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Kendricks was never placed on IR with his calf injury, but he ended up missing the Vikings' final five games of the season while recuperating. 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Kendricks hasn't logged any amount of practice reps since injuring his calf early December, and it looks like he's on track to miss his fourth straight game. As one of the best coverage linebackers in the league, the Vikings' defense would be particularly loathe to operate without Kendricks in a matchup against Alvin Kamara and the Saints.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Missing another contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Kendricks still has yet to resume practicing since suffering a calf injury during pregame warmups Week 13. Todd Davis stands to draw another start in the veteran linebacker's stead, but the impact of Kendricks' loss can't be understated for Minnesota's defense.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) didn't practice Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kendricks has been unable to practice or play since hurting his calf in Week 13 pregame warmups. Minnesota also promoted fellow linebacker Blake Lynch off the practice squad for added depth, suggesting the team has some serious doubts about Kendricks' ability to play against the Bears come Sunday, though he hasn't been ruled out at this time.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Will miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Kendricks got hurt in pregame warmups last week and will miss a second consecutive game as a result of the injury. He'll set his sights on healing up in time to face the Bears in Week 15, while Todd Davis should continue to fill in at linebacker. Davis played 100 percent of defensive snaps in Kendricks' stead last week after being limited exclusively to special teams duty over the previous three.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks (calf) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.

Kendricks has now missed two straight practices to begin the week, as he continues to nurse a calf injury sustained during pregame warmups prior to last weekend's win over Jacksonville. In order to have a realistic shot at facing the Buccaneers on Sunday, Kendricks would almost certainly have to return to practice in some capacity Friday.

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

Kendricks (calf) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice.

Kendricks tweaked his calf in pregame warmups ahead of last week's win over Jacksonville, as the issue appears serious enough to force him out of practice time. Expect the UCLA product's practice availability the rest of the week to paint a clearer picture for his chances to suit up in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. If Kendricks is sidelined for the second straight game, Todd Davis and Ryan Connelly would be in line for an uptick in snaps at linebacker.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Tweaks injury in warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks won't play in Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a calf injury.

The injury was thought to have occurred in pregame warmups, and the injury is serious enough to force him to miss the contest. With Kendricks sidelined, Troy Dye, Eric Wilson, Todd Davis and Ryan Connelly are the healthy linebackers for Week 13.

Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Piling up tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 12 total tackles, two tackles for a loss and an interception in Sunday's win over Carolina.

While Minnesota's defense has struggled this season, Kendricks is having one of his best seasons. He's averaging a career-high 9.7 tackles per game along with three interceptions.

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.

January 2, 2020 01:08 PM
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.
