The Vikings placed several players on their COVID-19 list on Monday, including linebacker Eric Kendricks.
In his seventh season, Kendricks leads Minnesota with 143 total tackles in 2021. He’s also recorded 5.0 sacks, a pair of interceptions, and four passes defensed.
All five players will have a chance to be available for Week 18 based on the league’s updated COVID-19 protocols.
The Vikings will play their season finale against the Bears on Sunday. Both teams have been eliminated from postseason contention.
