 Latest Vikings Player Notes
Nov 21 2017 - Andrew Sendejo
  SS Andrew Sendejo was limited in Tuesday's practice because of a groin and hamstring injury that sidelined him last week. If he can't play, Anthony Harris will start for the fourth time this season. He had a team-high seven tackles including a forced fumble that he recovered inside the Vikings' 1-yard line last week.


Nov 21 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers was limited in Tuesday's practice because of a concussion that kept him out of the past two games. If he can't play, Rashod Hill will get his third straight start. Hill has played well in Remmers' place.


Nov 21 2017 - Brian Robison
  DE Brian Robison was limited in Tuesday's practice because of a lower back injury that sidelined him on Sunday. If he can't play, the Vikings will continue to give extra reps to Stephen Weatherly.


Nov 20 2017 - Adam Thielen
  WR Adam Thielen has 916 yards receiving through 10 games. That's the third-highest total through 10 games in franchise history. Randy Moss owns the top two spots with 1,023 in 2003 and 920 in 2000.


Nov 20 2017 - Danielle Hunter
  DE Danielle Hunter has 23.5 sacks to rank sixth in team history for a player in his first three seasons. He had one on Sunday. The leader is Jared Allen with 40. No. 5 on the list is Keith Millard at 25.


Nov 20 2017 - Anthony Harris
  DE Anthony Harris replaced Andrew Sendejo for the third time, led the team in tackles and had a forced fumble that he recovered at the Vikings' 1-yard line.


Nov 20 2017 - Andrew Sendejo
  SS Andrew Sendejo missed his third game of the season. It was his second because of injury. He also was suspended for one game for unnecessary roughness.


Nov 20 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen's streak of consecutive games with at least one sack was snapped on Sunday. Playing at less than 100 percent against mammoth left tackle Andrew Whitworth, Griffen couldn't get near Jared Goff. Griffen's streak of eight consecutive games with a sack ties him for the franchise record with Jim Marshall in 1969 and Jared Allen in 2011.


Nov 20 2017 - Brian Robison
  DE Brian Robison had a streak of 76 consecutive games played snapped when he missed Sunday's game because of a back injury. Stephen Weatherly got extra snaps in place of Robison and had a key tackle for loss in the red zone in the second quarter.


Nov 20 2017 - Xavier Rhodes
  CB Xavier Rhodes missed one defensive series with a left calf injury, but later returned.


Nov 20 2017 - Brian Robison
  DE Brian Robison was inactive Sunday with a back injury. Robison showed up on the injury report on Friday with the injury.


Nov 20 2017 - Adam Thielen
  WR Adam Thielen added six catches for 123 yards and a 65-yard touchdown reception for the Vikings (8-2), who won their sixth straight game.


Nov 20 2017 - Case Keenum
  QB Case Keenum was 27-of-38 passing for 280 yards and a touchdown against his former Rams team. With QB Teddy Bridgewater activated, head coach Mike Zimmer has faced questions about Keenum and Bridgewater's inevitable promotion back to starter. Zimmer has taken time with the decision, as he had earlier this season when Sam Bradford was trying to make his way back from his own knee injury. Keenum continues to make it hard on Zimmer to make a change and Zimmer sounds like a coach willing to ride out Keenum while he's successful. "It's going to be hard to yank him out of there right now," Zimmer said after Keenum helped Minnesota to a 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. "He's playing good. I still have really high hopes. You know a lot of things happen throughout the course of this season, so we'll just see how it goes." Keenum was 27-of-38 passing for 280 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win, playing mistake-free while the defense held down Los Angeles' top-scoring offense. Keenum didn't commit a turnover, escaped some trouble with his legs and wasn't sacked. It's the third game this season Keenum hasn't been sacked or thrown an interception, tying a franchise record for a single season.


Nov 20 2017 - Latavius Murray
  RB Latavius Murray ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns and Minnesota's defense held down the Rams' top-scoring offense in a 24-7 win on Sunday.


Nov 17 2017 - Jeremiah Sirles
  OL Jeremiah Sirles, a versatile backup, was limited again in Thursday's practice. He has missed the past two games because of a knee sprain. He started two games, both wins, at left guard while Nick Easton sat out with a calf injury. He also can play right guard and right tackle.


Nov 17 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen, who missed last week's game because of a foot injury, was limited in practice again on Thursday. He should play. But he also was expected to play last week.


Nov 17 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers, who missed the Washington game last week because of a concussion, was limited again in Thursday's practice. But the fact he was able to practice two days in a row means he has been cleared from the concussion protocol. Barring a setback, he should play on Sunday.


Nov 17 2017 - Andrew Sendejo
  SS Andrew Sendejo (groin/hamstring) did not practice again on Thursday and probably will not play on Sunday. If he can't play, Anthony Harris get his third start of the year, assuming he is healthy enough to play. Harris was limited again on Thursday because of a hamstring injury. Sendejo has missed two games this year. One because of injury and one because of a one-game suspension. Harris has played well as a backup.


Nov 15 2017 - Jeremiah Sirles
  OL Jeremiah Sirles, a valuable backup, returned to practice on a limited basis after missing the last two games because of a knee injury. Sirles started two games, both wins, at left guard while Nick Easton sat with a calf injury.


Nov 15 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen, who missed last week's game because of a foot injury, was limited in practice on Wednesday. He is expected to play, although he also was expected to play last week.


Nov 15 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers, who missed the Washington game last week because of a concussion, returned to practice. He was limited, but appears to be on schedule to start Sunday.


Nov 15 2017 - Andrew Sendejo
  SS Andrew Sendejo (groin/hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. If he can't play, the Vikings will give Anthony Harris the start, assuming Harris is healthy enough. Harris was limited Wednesday because of a hamstring injury. Harris started and played well in London when Sendejo was serving a one-game suspension for unnecessary roughness.


Nov 15 2017 - Kai Forbath
  K Kai Forbath is tied for second in the league in field goals made with 22. The Rams' Greg Zuerlein is first with 28. Forbath has made 16 straight field goals.


Nov 15 2017 - Case Keenum
  QB Case Keenum passed for 304 yards and four touchdowns at Washington last week. It was the first time a Vikings quarterback had reached 300 yards and four touchdowns on the road since Daunte Culpepper had 425 yards with five touchdowns at New Orleans in 2004.


Nov 15 2017 - Case Keenum
  QB Case Keenum will remain the starter for the Minnesota Vikings this week against the Los Angeles Rams. The move was expected after Keenum threw for 304 yards and a career-high four touchdown passes with two interceptions in leading the Vikings to a 38-30 victory at the Washington Redskins last Sunday for their fifth straight win.


Nov 13 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers (concussion) missed the game. Rashod Hill got his first start and played well as the line gave up no sacks and only two QB hits.


Nov 13 2017 - Nick Easton
  LG Nick Easton returned from a calf injury that had sidelined him for three weeks. He made it through the game and appears to be good to go for Sunday's game against the Rams.


Nov 13 2017 - Andrew Sendejo
  SS Andrew Sendejo returned after missing the Browns game while serving a one-game suspension for targeting Ravens receiver Mike Wallace's head. Sendejo had two of the team's seven passes defensed on Sunday. He turned a touchdown into a field goal when he punched the ball from Jamison Crowder's grasp in the end zone on third-and-goal from the 3.


Nov 13 2017 - Eric Kendricks
  MLB Eric Kendricks continues to be a force as the team's leading tackler. He had a game-high 10 tackles, including one for a loss. On the TFL, he read the sweep perfectly, got a jump on the blocking and knifed through to upend the ball-carrier.


Nov 13 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen was a surprise inactive because of a foot injury he suffered against the Browns on Oct. 29. Griffen was listed as questionable, but was expected to play. The coaches changed their mind on his status after a pregame warmup. Griffen has 10 sacks, including one in each of the first eight games.


Nov 13 2017 - Stefon Diggs
  WR Stefon Diggs managed to get flagged when he used the goal post as a prop. After catching a touchdown pass in the far left corner of the end zone, Diggs took off toward the goal post, his arms spread wide. Then he jumped onto the "Salute to Service" padding around the base of the goal post and held on. The penalty also earned Diggs a stern talking to from head coach Mike Zimmer. The penalty helped give the Redskins the ball at their 40-yard line. They drove only 60 yards for a touchdown.


Nov 13 2017 - Teddy Bridgewater
  QB Teddy Bridgewater said he tried to hold back the tears. But as the national anthem played, he simply couldn't do it. Bridgewater started thinking about the last 14 months and how far he has come since that horrific knee injury during a non-contact practice drill. He looked down and saw himself back in uniform and, well, the tears began to flow. "I was trying to keep it together," Bridgewater said. "It's just, opportunities like these don't come around twice. So when you get that second opportunity, you cherish it. You hold it, and you never want to let it go. Today, it got the best of me." Bridgewater didn't play. He served as backup to Case Keenum.


Nov 13 2017 - Teddy Bridgewater
  QB Teddy Bridgewater, who hasn't played since suffering a horrific left knee injury before the start of the 2016 season, was activated Wednesday and served as Case Keenum's backup in Minnesota's 38-30 win over the Washington Redskins.


Nov 13 2017 - Latavius Murray
  RBs Latavius Murray (62) and Jerick McKinnon (38) combined for 100 yards.


Nov 13 2017 - Adam Thielen
  WR Adam Thielen had 166 receiving yards and the Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins 38-30 Sunday at FedExField to pick up their fifth straight win. Thielen had eight catches, one for a touchdown as QB Case Keenum threw touchdown passes to four different players.


Nov 13 2017 - Case Keenum
  QB Case Keenum threw a career-high four touchdown passes, Adam Thielen had 166 receiving yards and the Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins 38-30 Sunday at FedExField to pick up their fifth straight win. Keenum finished 21 of 29 for 304 yards. He threw two second-half interceptions that helped Washington rally, but the Vikings defense held the lead late. "A win's a win, so obviously I'm very pleased with that, but we made things interesting," Keenum said. "I think me, myself, put our team in a tough spot there. We need to learn how to finish games playing ahead, so definitely something to work on." Keenum threw touchdown passes to four different players, including Stefon Diggs (four catches for 78 yards).


Nov 10 2017 - Danny Isidora
  G Danny Isidora (ankle), a third-string rookie who started at left guard against the Browns, was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited on Wednesday.


Nov 10 2017 - Stephen Weatherly
  DE Stephen Weatherly (knee) was upgraded to limited in Thursday's practice. He isn't part of the line rotation and is easily replaced on special teams.


Nov 10 2017 - Jeremiah Sirles
  OL Jeremiah Sirles (knee), a key backup at guard and tackle, missed practice again Thursday and isn't expected to play on Sunday.


Nov 10 2017 - Stefon Diggs
  WR Stefon Diggs was added to the injury report with a tooth problem. He was limited in Thursday's practice.


Nov 10 2017 - Nick Easton
  LG Nick Easton, whose calf injury caused him to miss the three games before the bye, appears to be set for his return on Sunday. He has had full participation in both practices this week.


Nov 10 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers, who suffered a concussion early in the Browns game before the bye, did not practice again on Thursday and is looking doubtful for Sunday's game. If he can't play, Rashod Hill, the team's swing tackle, will start. Hill has proven to be a solid backup at both tackle spots.


Nov 10 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen didn't practice again Thursday because of a foot injury. But head coach Mike Zimmer said after practice that he expects Griffen to play on Sunday. Griffen warmed up with the team and appeared to be moving well on the sideline during the portion of practice open to the media.


Nov 8 2017 - Teddy Bridgewater
  QB Teddy Bridgewater, who was activated from PUP on Wednesday, was on the injury report has having full participation in Wednesday's practice.


Nov 8 2017 - Nick Easton
  LG Nick Easton, whose calf injury caused him to miss the three games right before the bye, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.


Nov 8 2017 - Everson Griffen
  DE Everson Griffen didn't practice Wednesday because of a foot injury. He's expected to play on Sunday. If he can't, the Vikings can move Danielle Hunter to right end and start veteran Brian Robison.


Nov 8 2017 - Mike Remmers
  RT Mike Remmers, who suffered a concussion early in the Browns game before the bye, did not practice on Wednesday. If he can't play Sunday, Rashod Hill, the team's swing tackle, will start. Hill has proven to be a solid backup at both tackle spots.


Nov 8 2017 - Terence Newman
  CB Terence Newman, a former Cowboy, has nine career interceptions against the Redskins. That's the most he has against a single team. He has intercepted five different Washington quarterbacks. He had a career-high three picks in one game against Washington as a rookie in 2003.


Nov 8 2017 - Kai Forbath
  K Kai Forbath has made 36 of 37 field-goal attempts in his 15 games as a Viking. He's 21 of 22 this year. But he's also made only 23 of 30 extra points as a Viking, including 12 of 16 this year.


Nov 8 2017 - Eric Kendricks
  MLB Eric Kendricks has led the Vikings in tackles since being drafted in the second round in 2015. He has 61 tackles this year, and is a big reason the Vikings lead the NFL in allowing the fewest runs of 10 yards or more. They've given up nine of them. The next closest is Tennessee with 15.
