Kyle Rudolph (foot) not practicing for Vikings Thursday

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (foot) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice.

What It Means:

Rudolph is heading for a second consecutive absence in Week 15 when the Vikings take on the Chicago Bears. Irv Smith caught 4 passes (4 targets) and scored a touchdown while leading the offense with 63 receiving yards in last week's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He should continue to be more involved versus the Bears if Rudolph is ruled out again.

Smith only logged a 35.4 percent snap share last week while coming off his own injury, but still finished among the top-five fantasy scorers at his position for the week. He should see more snaps this week but will be matched up against a Bears defense allowing the fourth-fewest FanDuel points per game to the tight end position this season.
