Vikings: Rudolph out with fractured foot


More bad news on the Vikings' injury front today with news from coach Leslie Frazier that tight end Kyle Rudolph will miss up to a month with a fractured foot.

Frazier didn't provide an exact timetable for Rudolph's return, but the tight end offered a timetable of his own to NFL report Jay Glazer.

He suffered the injury on a 31-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter of Minnesota's 27-23 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Rudolph has 30 receptions for 313 yards and three touchdowns this season. He went to the Pro Bowl in 2012 -- where he earned MVP honors -- after catching 53 balls for 493 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Star Tribune has a full report on Vikings injuries, including those of cornerback Xavier Rhodes and right tackle Phil Loadholt.
