Eric Kendricks Injury Updates

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks left in the 1st half on the Monday night game against the Packers with a quad injury. He's officially questionable to return, but Kendricks could be seen in a sweatshirt on the sideline in the 3rd quarter. He's probably not wearing that back into the game.

The Vikings have ruled LB Eric Kendricks out for Sunday's game against the Lions because of a hamstring injury. Kendricks' absence enhances the fantasy outlook for OLB Anthony Barr, raising his tackle floor.

As expected, Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. He missed most of the practice week with a rib injury, but HC Mike Zimmer said Kendricks would be "fine" for the game.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury. He missed practice Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited Saturday workout. The team expects him to play against Seattle, though. HC Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press that Kendricks "will be fine." Plan to have Kendricks available for your IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status Monday evening.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons with a hip injury that forced him out of last week's game early. HC Mike Zimmer said Friday he expects Kendricks to play, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, after the LB put in limited workouts Thursday and Friday.

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 MLB Eric Kendricks put in full practices Wednesday and Thursday as he works back from a rib injury that cost him 2 games. That seems to put him on track to start Sunday against Green Bay. If he's active, Kendricks will belong back in most IDP lineups.

The Vikings might be missing 2 of their 3 starting LBs Sunday in Oakland. MLB Eric Kendricks (ribs) is doubtful despite returning to a limited practice Friday. That would mark his 2nd missed game, though the Friday return has us hopeful for Week 11. OLB Anthony Barr (hand) also returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He's questionable for Sunday. HC Mike Zimmer had said earlier in the week that he though both guys would be ready. Minnesota will likely get DT Sharrif Floyd back for the Oakland game. Floyd's probable after a full Friday workout and limited sessions the previous 2 days. He missed the past 3 games after a foot injury that required surgery. He's officially listed with knee and ankle issues in the current report but has said he'll play. IDP owners should wait to see Floyd back in action before considering him a starting option. Veteran Chad Greenway turned back into a full-time LB with Kendricks out last week and will be an IDP option again this weekend.

Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks wouldn't give any details on his rib injury Monday after missing the Week 9 win over the Rams. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Kendricks said he's "not allowed" to discuss his injuries when reporters asked whether he's dealing with broken ribs. “I’m feeling good, but I’m still going to take it day-by-day,” Kendricks said. “I’m doing my best to get better. I’m in treatment every day. I’m listening to my body at this point … That’s all I can say.” We'll see if he returns to practice this week.

The Vikings have ruled MLB Eric Kendricks out for Sunday's game against the Rams with a rib injury. That will press Audie Cole into the starting role but against a team that has provided the fewest LB points in the league.
