Vikings Injury News: Kyle Rudolph Back At Practice, Chris Cook Still Out With Concussion

The Minnesota Vikings were unable to escape their second game of the preseason unscathed as both Kyle Rudolph and Chris Cook suffered what looked to be concussions at the time. Monday's practice offered some good news and some bad news on that front.

Rudolph was able to participate in Monday's practice after passing all of the typical concussion tests, though his status for this week's preseason game is still in doubt as the training staff wants to make sure he's 100 percent.

The news on Cook was worse, however, as he was held out of Monday's practice after failing the concussion tests on Monday. The team expects him to undergo the same tests Tuesday in hopes of him returning sooner rather than later.

"(We'll) just have to wait and see," Frazier said. "You'd like for him to be out here practicing and working and improving, but until he gets cleared you just have to wait and see."

In other injury news, Letroy Guion was able to return to practice -- albeit with a brace -- and John Carlson will likely be held out of this week's game. 1500 ESPN has an update on some of the other guys, too:

Safety Robert Blanton (hamstring) is improving, as is running back Jordan Todman (ankle). Defensive end Everson Griffen sat out Monday because of a stomach virus but is expected back Tuesday. Wide receiver Kamar Jorden (hand), linebacker Solomon Elimimian (hamstring) and guard Geoff Schwartz (sports hernia surgery) remain out.
