Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 22. DE Everson Griffen (quad), DT Linval Joseph (knee), DE Hercules Mata'afa (neck), CB Xavier Rhodes (hip), TE Kyle Rudolph (thumb), OT Riley Reiff (ankle), LB Eric Kendricks (hip), LB Ben Gedeon (concussion), OG Josh Kline (foot) and DT Shamar Stephen (knee) each participated in full.
Minnesota Vikings CB Marcus Sherels was released on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (quadriceps) and DT Linval Joseph (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 21. DT Hercules Mata'afa (neck) and CB Xavier Rhodes (hip) were limited during practice. OT Riley Reiff (ankle), LB Eric Kendricks (hip), LB Ben Gedeon (concussion), OG Josh Kline (foot) and DT Shamar Stephen (knee) fully participated in practice. The Vikings did not hold a practice Monday, so these are estimations.
Minnesota Vikings LB Eric Kendricks finished with 12 tackles, including six solo stops, and two passes defensed in a 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 7.
The Minnesota Vikings have declared DL Armon Watts, CB Marcus Sherels, LB Ben Gedeon, DE Jalyn Holmes, C Brett Jones, OG Dru Samia and OL Olisaemeka Udoh inactive for Week 7.
The Vikings Defense is again ranking among the NFL's best through six weeks. They rank fifth in yards allowed per game (310.3), fifth in yards allowed per play (4.8), sixth in points allowed per game (15.5), and 10th in sacks (17). They face the Detroit Lions on the road in Week 7 in a pivotal divisional matchup. Though the Lions have some nice weapons in Kerryon Johnson, Kenny Golladay, and veteran Matthew Stafford, the Vikings shouldn't have too much trouble keeping them contained in what projects to be a low-scoring affair. Stafford has only thrown two interceptions this year but also has four fumbles (two lost). Start the Vikings Defense as a top-eight play in Week 7.
Minnesota Vikings LB Ben Gedeon (concussion) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Detroit Lions. LB Kentrell Brothers (hamstring) was upgraded to full practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as questionable. OT Riley Reiff (ankle), OG Josh Kline (foot), S Anthony Harris (quad), LB Eric Kendricks (hip), CB Xavier Rhodes (hip) and DT Shamar Stephen (knee) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.
