Rudolph does not have an injury designation for this week's game against the Bears, which is a welcome sign after he was very limited the last few games. The Bears are decent against opposing tight ends, but Rudolph should see a full workload as the Vikings look to lock up a bye. He makes an excellent play in Week 17.
