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

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.

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.
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.
