Vikings Injury Report: Sharrif Floyd, Josh Robinson, Harrison Smith

By on 10/26/2014 09:00:00 AM

The Minnesota Vikings welcomed linebacker Chad Greenway back after a three-game absence in Week 7, but they emerged from last Sunday's last-second loss to the Buffalo Bills with a few more more notable injuries. Here is a rundown of the Vikings' official injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph (groin) has been ruled out as he continues to recover from sports hernia surgery. He has resumed football activities, but he looks likely to return after Minnesota's Week 10 bye. Chase Ford will continue to be the primary pass-catching tight end for the Vikings.

Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd was limited by an ankle issue heading into last week's game, but he was able to play. He is listed as probable for Sunday, after practicing in full on Friday.

A struggling offensive line was hit by injuries to center John Sullivan (concussion) and guard Vlad Ducasse (knee) during last Sunday's game. Sullivan has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is listed as probable, while Ducasse is listed as questionable. Ducasse has been starting at right guard in place of Brandon Fusco (torn pectoral), and if he can't go Mike Harris and Joe Berger are the remaining options at that position.

Along with Ducasse, cornerback Josh Robinson (ankle) and rookie safety Antone Exum (ankle) are listed as questionable. Robinson did not practice on Friday after being limited Thursday, but he has been optimistic about his chances to play on Sunday.

Linebacker Gerald Hodges missed last week's game with a hamstring issue, and he is listed as doubtful for this Sunday.

Joining Sullivan as probable are Ford (foot), safety Harrison Smith (ankle), rookie cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring) and defensive end Corey Wootton (back).
