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 S Andrew Sendejo (groin) will miss his 4th straight game today. He's inactive for the clash with the Lions. Lead CB Xavier Rhodes, however, will play through a "questionable" tag for a foot issue.

Vikings lead CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. That can only help the already positive fantasy outlook for Saints WR Michael Thomas. DT Linval Joseph (ankle) is active after missing last week's game. The Minnesota defense will also be without starters S Andrew Sendejo and LB Anthony Barr.

The Vikings have ruled out LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) and S Andrew Sendejo (groin) for Sunday night's game against the Saints. CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) and DT Linval Joseph (ankle) are questionable for the game. None of the 4 would be a strong IDP candidate anyway. But missing Joseph would hurt the run D and losing Rhodes would damage the coverage. Pro Football Focus grades Barr top-9 among off-ball LBs in run D and pass-rushing. Losing him brightens the outlook a bit for the New Orleans run game.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday with a groin injury. DT Linval Joseph is questionable for the visit to the Jets. He's listed with ankle, knee and shoulder injuries and put in just a single limited practice on Friday. We'd try not to use Joseph in IDP lineups this week even if he's active.

The Vikings will have CB Xavier Rhodes (hip) and LB Anthony Barr (hamstring) on the field for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Neither is much of an IDP option.
