KEY Thursday MEDIA UPDATES
>>>> Note: Due to travel and time constraints over the next two weeks, the table will include offensive skill position players only.
***Leonard Fournette missed practice again on Thursday but told reporters he would play this week. His injury reportedly occurred in the third quarter and he was cleared to continue to play. We've seen Fournette's status go either way with missed practices this season, with the Jaguars choosing caution with his ankles at times and allowing him to play without practicing at others. Friday's participation and media comments are critical.
***There were indications Tevin Coleman had been cleared to practice on Wednesday but he was not seen on Thursday and Dan Quinn told reporters Coleman remained in the concussion protocol. There remains time for Coleman to progress by Monday night. He'll need to be cleared for individual drills on Friday to feel comfortable with his Week 15 availability.
***It's unclear whether Kyle Rudolph will play this week but I think he's trending poorly. Yet to practice with an ankle injury, Mike Zimmer wouldn't discuss Rudolph's status while sounding optimistic about his multiple injured offensive linemen. The Vikings worked out extra tight ends on Thursday, with Rudolph, Blake Bell, and David Morgan all limited in practice at best.
