Kyle Rudolph sidelined again week 15

USA Today Sports

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph will be forced to miss his second straight game with a foot injury.

Backup Irv Smith caught four catches for 65 yards and a touchdown with Rudolph out last week, and he may see the same production against the Bears this week.

According to Rotoworld, tight ends have seen 24.83% of targets against Chicago’s defense, the second highest rate across the league.

Rudolph hasn’t been able to get anything going this season, and it shows in his low numbers of just 334 receiving yards and a single touchdown in 12 games.
