Week 10 Fantasy Football Thursday Night Injury Report: Kyle Rudolph

Minnesota Vikings starting TE Kyle Rudolph will miss an estimated 4 weeks after suffering a fractured foot while catching a 31 yard TD pass during Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. According to Rudolph, X-rays were initially negative for a foot fracture, but a second set of X-rays did find a fracture. No specific details on the exact location of the fracture is available at this time.

Injury Report: Obviously, we will not see Rudolph on the field for several weeks. Typically, a fracture is given a standard timeline of 4-6 weeks, so the fact that most reports only state he will miss one month is a good sign that his fracture is possibly in an area that is not significant to his function. Also, don’t be surprised by the negative first set of X-rays. This commonly happens in the presence of significant swelling, which can cloud the imaging and hide fractures that are not overtly obvious.

In Rudolph’s place, expect to see both Chase Ford and John Carlson to get the bulk of snaps, but keep an eye on Rhett Ellison being a factor if he can get himself healthy, as he’s dealing with an ankle injury of his own.
