Final Vikings-Bears Week 15 Injury Report: Eric Kendricks & Kyle Rudolph Ruled Out

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings will be without linebacker Eric Kendricks for a third week in a row and miss veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph for a second consecutive week.

Kendricks is working through a calf injury he suffered during a practice; a foot injury Rudolph suffered in Week 13 against Jacksonville kept him from playing at Tampa Bay and ended his consecutive starts streak at 93 regular-season games.

Vikings running back Alexander Mattison, who returned to practice this week after undergoing appendix surgery earlier this month, was listed as questionable.

The other players on Minnesota's injury report — fullback C.J. Ham (quadriceps), defensive tackle Armon Watts (back) and defensive ends Jordan Brailford (back) and D.J. Wonnum (ankle) — did not receive a designation for Sunday's game and are likely to be available.

Minnesota (6-7) hosts Chicago (6-7) at noon (CT) Sunday.
