News: Rudolph is participating in in this week's OTAs and says he's fully healthy after missing seven games last season due to hernia surgery, ankle and knee injuries, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I'll tell you, what's even a better addition is have Kyle Rudolph back healthy," quaterback Teddy Bridgewater said. "He's like a whole new player on the team."
Impact: Rudolph missed six games last year after a sports hernia injury that required surgery and wasn't at full speed when he returned. He missed an additional game due to a knee and ankle injury. Rudolph could be a primary weapon in the Minnesota offense as offensive coordinator Norv Turner has an impressive track record with tight ends, but Rudolph needs to show he can stay healthy after missing nearly half his games the past two seasons.
