The Vikings placed tight end Kyle Rudolph on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season and possibly his career in Minnesota.

Rudolph might have to take a pay cut to return next season. He has a salary cap figure of $9.45 million in 2021 and cutting him would save the Vikings $5.1 million.

But that’s a discussion for later.

For now, the Vikings signed rookie guard Kyle Hinton to take Rudolph’s spot on the roster. Hinton was a seventh-round choice out of Washburn University.

He spent the first 15 games on the practice squad, learning the guard position after spending his college career at tackle.
