TE Kyle Rudolph will miss today's game due to ankle and knee injuries suffered during the loss at Detroit last Sunday. Rhett Ellison will start in his place.
However, the Vikings will get some bodies back in the lineup, as S Robert Blanton and DT Sharrif Floyd are both active, though Andrew Sendejo will get the start at safety opposite Harrison Smith.
Here are the Vikings inactives:
S Ahmad Dixon
CB Shaun Prater
FB Zach Line
LB Anthony Barr
T Carter Bykowski
G Charlie Johnson
TE Kyle Rudolph
G Vladimir Ducasse will start at LG for Charlie Johnson, while Gerald Hodges continues to fill in for Anthony Barr.
