Minnesota has really missed Eric Kendricks recently.

Kendricks suffered a pregame calf injury leading up to the Jaguars matchup in Week 13. He did not play in the Jacksonville game. The defense played OK in that game, but the group gave up big plays to a struggling team.

The next game, Kendricks was also out. In Week 14, the Vikings played the Buccaneers and the defense was disappointing, not generating a pass rush and letting up big plays once again. Kendricks isn’t typically a huge pass rushing threat, but he does add quite a bit in coverage.

Minnesota has more bad news this week. Kendricks is on the inactives list after being ruled out for the Week 15 game.

Here is the full list:
