Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings placed Gedeon (concussion) on injured reserve Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Gedeon was already ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Seahawks after sustaining his second concussion of the year Nov. 17. The third-year linebacker will finish the season with 13 tackles over eight games. Eric Wilson and Anthony Barr are the remaining healthy outside linebackers for the time being.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Suffers concussion Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon is done for Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a consussion, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear how Gedeon picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the third quarter. He'll now enter the league's mandated concussion protocol, and need be cleared before resuming football activities. As long as Gedeon is sidelined, look for Eric Wilson to fill in at the linebacker position.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Ready for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) will play in Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Gedeon was a full practice participant all week and won't carry an injury tag into this contest. The third-year pro is listed as a starter on the Vikings' depth chart, but he didn't surpass a 31-percent snap share through four games this year. His IDP value is negligible until he ups his snap count.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Listed as full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) was a full practice participant Tuesday.

Gedeon appears on track to make his return after missing the past two games, though it's worth noting he has yet to be officially cleared from the concussion protocol. Wednesday's injury report should provide more clarity on his availability for Thursday's game.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Out again Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Detroit, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Gedeon will miss his second straight game after sustaining a concussion Week 5 against the Giants. Eric Wilson should continue to work in Gedeon's place at weakside linebacker.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles.

Gedeon remains in the concussion protocol due to a head injury suffered Week 5 versus the Giants. Eric Wilson will continue to play a notable role on defense as long as Gedeon is unable to go.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice.

The 25-year-old exited Sunday's win over the Giants to be evaluated for a concussion and won't be able to see game action until he fully clears the concussion protocol. Eric Wilson should see increased defensive opportunities while Gedeon remains sidelined.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game versus the Giants, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

If Gedeon's unable to return to this contest, expect Eric Wilson to see a hefty increase in playing time as Eric Kendricks and Anthony Thomas are the only two other healthy linebackers.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Active for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (groin) will play in Sunday's home game against the Raiders.

Gedeon missed Week 2 with the injury but, as evidenced by this news, will make his return to the field. Expect Gedeon to resume his starting role at one of the linebacker positions for the contest, with Eric Wilson filling in for the inactive Anthony Barr (groin) at another.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders.

Gedeon was sidelined Week 2 due to groin injury, and his status for Sunday's game against the Raiders could come down to a game-time decision. If Gedeon is unable to go, Eric Wilson will likely draw another start at linebacker.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Gedeon sat out Sunday's loss to the Packers and did not practice Wednesday, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. Look for the extent of Gedeon's participation Friday to shed some light on his chances of suiting up Week 3.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (groin) is officially listed as inactive for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Gedeon popped up on the injury report late in the week, and as evidenced by this news, will be forced to sit. Although the Michigan product started last week, he only played 18 defensive snaps. Now that he's officially out, Eric Wilson is expected to get the start at linebacker for Sunday's contest.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (groin) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Gedeon wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday or Thursday, but it's still positive news that he participated in some capacity. Although he started at weak-side linebacker in Week 1, Gedeon only played 18 defensive snaps and made one tackle. If he can shake off this injury in time, Gedeon will likely start again, although that doesn't guarantee a heightened snap count.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Limited work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon started at weak-side linebacker and had one tackle in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Gedeon played just 18 of the defense's 74 snaps, as he comes off when the defense is in nickel or dime formations. With the Vikings building an early lead, the Falcons were forced to pass the ball most of the game. While he's a starting linebacker, his upside is limited since he doesn't stay in on passing situations.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon cleared the concussion protocol Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gedeon sat out last week's win over the Packers due to a concussion, but he has now cleared the league-mandated protocol and is on track to suit up Sunday against the Patriots. The second-year linebacker will fill his usual role as weak-side linebacker.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Unavailable Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Gedeon was added to the injury report this week with the concussion and he was unable to clear the concussion protocol for Sunday's game. Eric Wilson could be more heavily relied upon at weak-side linebacker for the Vikings in his absence.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon didn't practice Wednesday due to a concussion.

Gedeon's injury designation is something of a surprise, given there was no report that he suffered a head injury during Sunday's loss to the Bears. His listing on the Vikings' first injury report of Week 12 implies that he has entered the NFL's concussion protocol and must clear the five-step process in order to suit up this weekend against the Packers.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Five tackles in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon had five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's win over the 49ers, tying a career high.

Don't expect too many high-tackle games from Gedeon, however, as he comes off the field in nickel and dime packages. Gedeon played just 30 of the defense's 67 snaps.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Records 37 tackles in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon racked up 37 tackles in 2017.

Gedeon, a fourth-round rookie, won the starting weakside linebacker job in the preseason. However, because he would come off the field whenever Minnesota went to one of their nickel packages, Gedeon played less than an average starter would. Nevertheless, winning a starting job as a first-year linebacker is an impressive feat, and Gedeon will have room to grow in the final three years of his rookie contract.

September 12, 2017 03:12 PM
Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Starts at weak-side linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gedeon started at weak-side linebacker but had just two tackles in Monday's win over the Saints. He played just 16 of 62 snaps on defense.

Gedeon beat out Edmond Robinson and Emmanuel Lamur for the starting job. The 2017 fourth-round draft pick may not have a lot of fantasy value, however, as the weak-side linebacker comes off the field in nickel packages.
