Vikings HC Mike Zimmer's status for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys is "uncertain" after he underwent emergency eye surgery on the Wednesday, the team announced. It's certainly not an ideal scenario for a team that's topped 20 points in just 1 of its last 6 games. WR Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph should be the only Vikings on your Week 13 radar.

Update: Zimmer will miss the game.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks (hip) and S Harrison Smith (ankle) are active for today's game against the Lions after entering the day questionable. They'll carry a bit more risk than usual but are OK to use as you normally would. (Check our Week 12 rankings.) CB Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) is also active despite coming in questionable. CB Terence Newman (neck) is out, as expected. He entered Sunday doubtful. Minnesota will also miss usual punt returner CB Marcus Sherels (ribs), who is inactive.

Vikings S Harrison Smith (ankle), MLB Eric Kendricks (hip) and CB Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) are questionable for Thursday's game against the Lions. HC Mike Zimmer said Wednesday that he expects Munnerlyn and Smith to play, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. That indicates Kendricks' status is more in question, despite his return to action in Week 11. We'll see about their statuses Thursday morning. CB Terence Newman is doubtful for the game.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks (hip) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He left last week's loss at Washington in the 1st quarter but returned to a limited practice Thursday and then a full workout Friday. He seems fine to use as you normally would in IDP leagues. Kendricks' presence takes tackle upside away from LB Anthony Barr and reduces LB Chad Greenway back to a part-time player and IDP non-factor.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He missed Wednesday's practice but returned to a limited workout Thursday and then a full practice Friday. He seems to be trending toward playing, but we'll check on his status Sunday.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss at Washington with a hip injury. He initially left on the team's 1st defensive possession after colliding with teammate Anthony Barr. Kendricks returned but left again shortly thereafter. We'll check on his status this week heading into a high-volume matchup with the Cardinals in Week 11. Barr and Chad Greenway each played nearly 100% of the snaps with Kendricks sidelined.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (shoulder) is active for today's game against Washington. He's a risky IDP play after missing the 1st 2 days of practice this week and putting in only a limited workout Friday. The defense will miss slot CB Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) who's inactive.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington. He returned to a limited practice Friday but missed the week's 1st 2 workouts. We'll check on his status Sunday.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo (ankle) is active for today's game against the Lions. He missed last week after suffering his injury in the 1st half of the prior week's loss at Philly. There's likely some re-injury risk here, but Sendejo managed limited practice participation all week. There's also tackle upside against a pass-favoring Lions offense -- especially in a bad matchup for an already shaky Detroit run game. We've added him to the Week 9 DB rankings.

The Vikings have ruled MLB Eric Kendricks (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. Audie Cole will likely start in his place but is just a mediocre IDP option. Kendricks' absence takes a bit of the big-play upside out of Minnesota's D but not enough to significantly alter the outlook for redraft formats.

Vikings OC Norv Turner has resigned, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. There's likely more to this story that we'll learn about in the coming days. Turner is 1 of the most respected offensive minds in the game, although this year's Minnesota offense currently ranks 31st in yards per game and 23rd in points per game. Turner figures to be replaced by either Tony Sparano or Pat Shurmur. Both guys have spent multiple seasons as HC and/or OC in the NFL.

Update: Shurmur will take over as OC. He played a big part in bringing QB Sam Bradford to Minnesota after working with him both in St. Louis and Philadelphia.
