The Cardinals are paying TE John Carlson $4.65M over two years, according to a source.

Fantasy Impact:

Rob Housler takes a hit with this news. Carlson was good (#5) for a four-game stretch from Week 10 to Week 13 after Kyle Rudolph went down, but isn't much of a fantasy option in Arizona.

Vikings will cut TE John Carlson, per source. Sides had been talking about a restructure but couldn't reach an agreement.

Fantasy Impact:

Carlson had a nice stretch after Kyle Rudolph went down, posting #5 TE numbers from Week 10 to Week 13. He missed the last three games of the season due to a concussion. It's possible that the Packers could be interested in his services as he should be a cheap option in free agency.

Vikings tight end John Carlson’s latest concussion has ended his season.

The Vikings announced today that Carlson has been placed on injured reserve and will not play in the final two games of 2013.

Fantasy Impact:

Even worse, this concussion may end up costing him his career. The story said that Carlson told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune this week that he needs to confer with his family this offseason to determine whether it makes sense for him to keep playing football. Carlson declined to say exactly how many concussions he has suffered since he started playing football, but he has had at least three since 2011.

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was placed on injured reserve, HC Leslie Frazer announced. He suffered a broken foot on Nov. 3 against the Cowboys and was expected to return in 4-6 weeks. The team hoped Rudolph would practice this week, but he wasn’t ready to make that step.

Fantasy Impact:

John Carlson suffered a concussion in Week 14 so his status is in doubt for Week 15 vs. the Eagles. Rhett Ellison is next up on the depth chart.

St. Paul Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Monday that tight end Kyle Rudolph could return to practice next week. After Rudolph fractured his foot during the Nov. 3 game at Dallas, it was projected he would be out four to six weeks.

"He's making good progress ... and could very well be practicing next week, we hope," Frazier said.

Fantasy Impact:

The story points out that if Rudolph returns Dec. 8 at Baltimore, he would have missed four games. In the three games he has missed, John Carlson has filled in admirably, catching 15 passes for 203 yards.
