Chargers LBs Eric Kendricks (ribs) and Kenneth Murray (shoulder) are active for tonight's game against the Jets. You can use either as planned in IDP lineups.

Chargers LBs Kenneth Murray and Eric Kendricks are both questionable for tonight's game against the Jets. Murray looks like the iffier of the two after sustaining a shoulder injury in Friday's practice that limited him Saturday. Kendricks is dealing with a rib injury that limited him Thursday and Friday. But he finished the week with a full Saturday workout. Nick Niemann would likely be the next LB up if either starter misses the game, with rookie Daiyan Henley at No. 4.

The Chargers list LB Eric Kendricks (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans. His expected absence will leave LB Kenneth Murray calling the defensive plays. The Chargers will also miss rookie LB Daiyan Henley (hamstring) for the second straight game. That leaves the replacement plan unclear. Some combo of Nick Niemann and Amen Ogbongbemiga will fill in. Murray is the only Chargers LB worth considering for IDP lineups. And even he shouldn't be a priority. Murray continued to play poorly in Week 1. If you play in a deep IDP league, Henley -- a third-round rookie -- might be worth stashing, on the chance he takes over a starting spot at some point this year.

The Chargers have agreed to a two-year, $13.25 million deal with LB Eric Kendricks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Vikings released Kendricks earlier this offseason to free up cap space. His arrival to L.A. comes with last year's lead LB, Drue Tranquill, still on the open market. So Kendricks looks like the best bet to lead the LB corps in 2023 playing time. There's still room for Tranquill to come back and play a significant role. If he doesn't and the Chargers don't make any other significant additions at off-ball LB, then Kenneth Murray could get one final starting shot in the fourth year of his rookie contract. We'd be quite surprised if L.A. picks up the fifth-year option on the highly disappointing former first-round pick. Expect Kendricks to land inside the top 30 when our 2023 IDP rankings drop.

The Vikings are releasing LB Eric Kendricks, which will save the team $9.5 million in 2023 cap space. It was a necessary move for a team that hit the offseason among the furthest over the cap. Kendricks turned 31 at the end of February, so he likely doesn't have many productive NFL seasons left. We'd bet on him landing a 2023 opportunity somewhere, though. The veteran started every game last season for just the second time in his career and has started 113 of his 117 career appearances. Don't be surprised if Kendricks lingers on the open market until after the NFL Draft, though.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (hip) is active for today's game against the Giants. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Giants. He finished the week with a full Thursday workout after limited practices the previous 2 days. So we'd bet on Kendricks playing but will confirm his status Saturday morning. CB Cameron Dantzler (ankle) is also questionable.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (toe) is active for today's game against the Lions. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

The Vikings have ruled S Harrison Smith (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. LB Eric Kendricks (toe) is questionable. Kendricks didn't appear on the injury report until Friday, when the issue limited his participation. That's worrisome timing for his Week 3 status. We'll keep an eye on him through Sunday morning.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks landed on the COVID list Monday. He'll have time to return before Sunday's season finale, but we'll see how his situation develops.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks got ejected in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game against the Bears after delivering a shot to the head of Chicago QB Justin Fields. The rookie was clearly in his slide at the end of a scramble, and Kendricks made the helmet-to-helmet hit. We wouldn't bet on a suspension following, but we'll see about any further league action.

The Vikings have downgraded MLB Eric Kendricks (biceps) to out for Sunday's game against the Lions. Minnesota might also be missing LB Anthony Barr, who is questionable with knee and hamstring injuries that allowed him only a limited Friday workout this week. LB Nick Vigil should get full playing time in a friendly setting for tackle opportunities. If Barr is also out, then Troy Dye looks like the next LB up for significant playing time. The Vikings did activate DT Michael Pierce from IR. That follows DT Dalvin Tomlinson's return from the COVID list to replenish the middle of the Minnesota D-line.

Vikings LB Eric Kendricks (biceps) and LB Anthony Barr (knee, hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Barr looks more shaky for the game after putting in just 1 limited practice Friday. His absence doesn't matter much for IDP purposes, other than that it would likely mean full playing time for LB Nick Vigil. He has been a much stronger fantasy contributor than Barr this season. Kendricks sandwiched limited practices around a missed Thursday workout. We'll update the statuses for all 3 LBs Sunday morning.
