Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph injured his foot while on a touchdown catch against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday that could sideline him for a significant amount of time.
Rudolph caught a pass in the third quarter and powered his way into the end zone, but it appeared he injured himself on the play and did not return.
Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph will miss what one source described as “some time” with a foot injury he sustained Sunday.

Frazier said Kyle Rudolph fractured his foot. Will be out a while, not sure when he’ll be able to return.
