Kyle Rudolph Fractures Foot-- Out For a Month

Minnesota Viking Kyle Rudolph will be out a month after fracturing his foot on Sunday in Dallas Coach Leslie Frazier said Monday. Frazier called it a “significant” loss. The first game Rudolph will miss will be Thursday at home against Washington.

Rudolph has 30 catches for 313 yards with three touchdowns, including a 31-yard TD grab against the Cowboys.

Rudolph fractured his foot on his touchdown play in the third quarter Frazier said. “He just got twisted there. I think (a Cowboys player) fell on his foot when he was tackling him. It was a very significant injury for him for our team.”

Frazier, though, is optimistic other players will step up.

Chase Ford, who played in the ball game and did a good job for us, he’ll play,” Frazier said. “John Carlson will get more reps. Hopefully, we’ll get Rhett (Ellison) back (from an ankle injury after missing two games).”
