Rhodes was in on a tackle and one of his teammates' knees (I think) drove into his hip as they were all piling up. He came out for a play or two and got back in the game, but you could see it was painful.

I think it was Smith's forearm.

@Vikings

We have signed Kyle Carter to the active roster, signed Jack Tocho to the practice squad and placed Blake Bell on IR.

Rudolph: Out
Reiff: "Maybe", per Zimmer. So probably not.

Correction:

Rudolph: Doubtful
Reiff: Doubtful
Alexander: Out
Lamur: Questionable

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip), guard Jeremiah Sirles (knee), running back Jerick McKinnon(shoulder), wide receiver Adam Thielen (knee), tackle Mike Remmers (low back), defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (shoulder), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee), center Pat Elflein (shoulder) and tight End David Morgan (concussion) were all full participants in practice Friday and are expected to play.

Alexander out could be an issue also. Maybe they are playing it safe for what should be a winnable game against a reeling Bengals club.

We've been lucky with Injuries so far... bad timing.

What happened to Blake Bell? I liked his blocking.

At least Burfict is out. And Minter. And Kirkpatrick.

Bell has a shoulder injury that will require surgery.

Morgan is a superior blocker.

I know but Bell is good too. When the three of them were in they usually cleared out a good path.

Kyle Carter is a decent blocker and reciever also. And he's getting a chance on his birthday.
