Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph will be sidelined for a month with a broken foot, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Rudolph injured his foot while scoring a touchdown in the third quarter of the Vikings loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. The third-year tight end left the game after scoring on the 31-yard catch and run, and the injury was confirmed by coach Leslie Frazier today.
