  Vikings | Minnesota Week 10 injury report    Sat Nov 14, 03:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (groin) did not practice Saturday, Nov. 14, and is listed as out for the team's Week 10 game Monday night against the Chicago Bears. CB Cameron Dantzler (concussion) was limited in practice Saturday and is listed as questionable. FB C.J. Ham (shoulder, non-injury), DE Ifeadi Odenigbo (shoulder) and WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) practiced in full Saturday and do not carry status designations for Week 10.

Footballguys view: Smith is coming off a 2-touchdown performance against the Lions in Week 9. There's more there for him if the Vikings had a dedication to getting him the ball. That won't matter in Week 10 as he's out, so the Vikings turn to more Kyle Rudolph at the position.
