Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Limited Wednesday with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

After six consecutive games in which he failed to surpass 3.6 yards per carry, McKinnon found daylight in Sunday's loss to the Panthers, gaining 46 yards on seven totes. Despite his efficient work, McKinnon saw his usage dwindle after halftime, with the shoulder issue perhaps offering an explanation for that. McKinnon's ability to practice in any capacity Wednesday suggests his injury shouldn't keep him out Week 15 against the Bengals, but his situation will warrant a closer look if he fails to turn in a full session either Thursday or Friday.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Limited with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen was listed as a limited participant during Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

There were no indications that Thielen was hurting following Sunday's 105-yard, one-touchdown effort in a loss to the Panthers, so it's presumed that his limitations Wednesday were primarily for maintenance-related reasons. Assuming Thielen gains clearance to suit up Week 15 against the Bengals, he'll take aim against a banged-up Cincinnati defense that surrendered 25 completions and 271 passing yards last week to Bears rookie Mitch Trubisky, who had previously surpassed the 200-yard barrier in just one of his previous eight starts.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph (ankle) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Considering he emerged from the locker room Sunday in Carolina with a walking boot on his foot, Rudolph's absence isn't much of a surprise. He'll have two more chances to make his presence felt this week, which will sway his listing on Friday's injury report. Rudolph's direct backup, David Morgan, remains in the concussion protocol. If both are held out Sunday, Blake Bell will take on primary tight-end duties.

Vikings' Case Keenum: Locked in as Week 15 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum will start Week 15 against the Bengals, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The rumors about Teddy Bridgewater taking the job went quiet the past month as Keenum continued to play at a high level. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer made it clear that one bad outing won't cost Keenum the job, as Sunday's 31-24 loss in Carolina was preceded by eight consecutive victories, with five of those coming against teams that currently own winning records. Keenum threw two picks and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss, but he also tossed a pair of touchdowns while accounting for 320 yards of offense (40 on the ground).

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Still has lingering ankle soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray said he still deals with general soreness in his surgically repaired ankle, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

This is at least the second time this season that Murray has mentioned the lingering effects of his March ankle surgery. Of course, it was a much bigger concern when he talked about the ankle in early October, at which point he'd taken only 14 carries for 38 yards in four games. He's since emerged as the more reliable half of a split backfield with Jerick McKinnon, averaging 3.9 yards per carry on 15.7 totes per game (60.9 yards) since Dalvin Cook suffered a torn ACL in Week 4. Given that Murray hasn't been listed on the injury report recently, his ankle doesn't seem like a major concern heading into a Week 15 home matchup with an injury-riddled Cincinnati defense. He'll try to bounce back from a nine-carry, 14-yard showing in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Panthers.
