(Fox Sports) FF Today's Take: Given the current state of the Vikings' offense (Cordarrelle Patterson's lack of involvement, for example), it is not a stretch to think that Rudolph could be a second-half stud given the fact that Teddy Bridgewater is a short and intermediate thrower.

Cornerback Josh Robinson in doubt for Sunday's game after missing Vikings practice

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Josh Robinson, who hurt his ankle in practice Thursday, did not practice Friday. That puts his status for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay in doubt. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is expected to address Robinson's status later in the day. Safety Antone Exum returned to practice Friday after sitting out Thursday with an ankle issue. And tight end Kyle Rudolph did some work on the side for the first time since suffering a groin injury Sept. 21 at New Orleans. Rudolph is recovering from groin surgery. He's expected to return next month, perhaps for the Nov. 16...

Rudolph feels good, could be on practice field soon

Kyle Rudolph was in the Vikings locker room this afternoon, and the injured tight end took a couple of minutes between digging in on some barbecue — which smelled like what I imagine heaven smells like — and taking a quick shower to chat with us about his recovery from sports hernia surgery. “I feel good. I’m walking around. Not much changed in my rehab. I guess I’m independent now,” Rudolph said with a smile. “I can take care of myself, which is always good after a surgery.” Rudolph had surgery two weeks ago, a couple days after the Week 3 loss to the Saints. After he was...

Kyle Rudolph conditioning; Sullivan, Ducasse limited

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was present at practice for the first time since he had sports hernia surgery. Rudolph stretched at the start of practice but did not participate during the open portion to the media. Instead, he was conditioning on the side with linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring). Rudolph has missed the last four weeks recovering from the surgery he needed after Week 3 against the Saints. He was scheduled to return in six weeks, and it appears Rudolph could be on track to in that time frame barring any setbacks. Center John Sullivan (concussion) and guard Vladimir Ducasse...

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway returns after missing three games due to injury

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. _ Linebacker Chad Greenway will return for the Vikings on Sunday after missing three games due to a broken hand and broken ribs.

Vikings optimistic about early return from Rudolph

Underwent sports hernia surgery after Week 3 Mike Zimmer still feels like TE Kyle Rudolph out less than eight weeks from when hurt. That's why no injury with designation to return. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter) FF Today's Take: Rudolph admitted his injury had bothered him since early August and was given a 4-to-6 week timeline for recovery. As proof of Rudolph's upside when healthy, Jarius Wright ended up taking many of the slot snaps in Week 4 that Rudolph would have received. The Vikings' bye is in Week 10, which makes the following week a realistic return date. Any time...

Vikings: Kyle Rudolph aiming for mid-November return to lineup

Injury is robbing Kyle Rudolph of another chunk of games this season, but the Vikings' tight end is optimistic double sports hernia surgery will leave him poised for a potential playoff drive.

Kyle Rudolph recovering from sports hernia surgery

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph said he’s making progress after sports hernia surgery last week. He was in the Vikings locker room on Monday, a week into the recovery process after sitting out on Sunday in the team’s 41-28 victory over the Falcons at TCF Bank Stadium. Rudolph said the injury initially bothered him during the first week of training camp. There was a tear in the abdominal muscle away from the pelvis, Rudolph said, that he felt on the right side. During the procedure, Rudolph said they went ahead and fixed both sides. “I’m glad that I was able to get them fixed, move...

Vikings need backup tight ends to step up with Kyle Rudolph out

Kyle Rudolph was pegged before the season as a Vikings player poised to break out with offensive coordinator Norv Turner calling the plays. But that notion can be shelved for the time being after the latest setback in a career that has been marred by injuries and inconsistency.
