Greenway out for Sunday's game against Falcons

Publish date:

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway will have his streak of 90 consecutive starts end on Sunday when Minnesota hosts the Atlanta Falcons.

The Vikings have listed Greenway - who is dealing with a broken rib and broken hand - out for this week's game along with tight end Kyle Rudolph, who had sports hernia surgery on Tuesday. Cornerback Josh Robinson is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.

Greenway - who has led Minnesota in tackles each of the past six seasons - has started every game since Week 10 of the 2008 season. His streak of 90 straight starts is the most among active NFL linebackers. Greenway hasn't missed a game since a knee injury caused him to miss his rookie season in 2006.
