Vikings TE Irv Smith Jr has been ruled out for Monday against the Bears with a concussion.
Smith was coming off a 2-touchdown performance against the Lions but the concussion held him out of practice all week. That was the most noise a Vikings TE had made this season. Kyle Rudolph will be the main option at the position, but is clearly in a decline. He’s our No. 18 TE this week in what’s a average matchup against the Bears (No. 20 in our schedule-adjusted matchup rankings).
