As expected Vikings starting Tight End Kyle Rudolph will be on the field Sunday in Detroit. Rudolph has become so important for the Vikings offense as he is quickly becoming Christian Ponder’s favorite target and definitely his favorite in the redzone.
Linebacker Erin Henderson is inactive again as he is still suffering from concussion symptoms. Marvin Mitchell will step in for Henderson and has not been nearly the player Henderson is when on the field. This poses a problem for the Vikings defense today especially in coverage.
