Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Leads team in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kendricks had 11 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 23-10 victory over the Packers.

It marks the first game this season where Kendricks had double-digit tackles, and he also eclipsed his tackle total from the previous two weeks combined. The 25-year-old and the Vikings' defense have an appealing matchup against the struggling Ravens' offense in Week 7.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Tallies half-sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph brought his season sack total to 1.5 with a half-sack in Sunday's victory over the Packers.

Joseph also recorded four tackles (three solo) in the contest. The defensive tackle was on the field for 59 defensive snaps (59.0 percent). He will look to stay active in the Vikings' Week 7 matchup against Ravens.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Should stay involved
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer hinted that Murray will continue to have a significant role, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The wide gulf between Murray's production and Jerick McKinnon's has led to some speculation that the former Raider could essentially fall out of the offensive game plan. The Vikings seemingly aren't quite ready to take that step, but Murray needs to improve quickly or else the team won't have much choice. He's gained only 80 yards on 30 touches (three catches) in two games since Dalvin Cook (knee) suffered a season-ending knee injury, while McKinnon has piled up 245 yards and three touchdowns on 43 touches (11 catches). However, McKinnon has fumbled three times the past three weeks, after making it through the first 45 games of his career without a single fumble. His robust production nonetheless figures to outweigh the statistical oddity when the team evaluates its backfield, particularly if McKinnon stays hot in Sunday's matchup with the Ravens. Anyway you slice it, Murray is in danger of seeing his role reduced in the coming weeks.

Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Returning to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridgewater (knee) will begin practicing Wednesday but won't be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list immediately, Chris Tomasson of The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "He'll stay on the PUP list until he's ready to play," coach Mike Zimmer said on Monday. "He hasn't practiced in 14 months, so we're not going to (overdo it) Wednesday."

The Vikings can take up to three weeks before they have to either activate Bridgewater to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. The latter would only happen in the event of a major setback, as the Vikings could seriously use Bridgewater's help while there's so much uncertainty surrounding Sam Bradford (knee). Tomasson speculates that Bridgewater could be held out the next two weeks and then activated for games after the Vikings' Week 9 bye. Bridgewater's role upon returning will depend upon his own performance in practice and Case Keenum's performance in games, in addition to Bradford's health. Keenum remains the best best to start Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: Feeling better after weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that Bradford (knee) is feeling better but won't necessarily be ready to practice Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Bradford recently traveled to New York for Regenokine blood-spinning treatment, which is expected to take five or six days. Combining that information with a recent report that the quarterback's surgically repaired left knee could eventually lead him to consider an early retirement, it's hard to imagine Bradford returning to practice Wednesday and then starting Sunday's game against the Ravens. He should still be viewed as out indefinitely, but the Vikings do at least have some good news on the quarterback front, with Teddy Bridgewater (knee) set to resume practicing Wednesday. While Case Keenum likely will start at least one more game, the team may soon have other options at quarterback, be it Bridgewater, Bradford or both.
