Notable injuries, news from Sunday's Week 13 games

Injuries and news we're monitoring around the league on this Week 13 Sunday:

  • Minnesota Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks was ruled out just before kickoff against the Jaguars. The All-Pro was active but not on the field to start the game, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. He appeared on the injury report Thursday with a calf issue. Pelissero added that Kendricks has been in street clothes and sitting on the bench with teammates during the game, a good indication that he didn't suffer a major injury.
  • Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was active for his team's win on Sunday, but did not play. Following the game, coach Andy Reid said Edwards-Helaire lost weight because of a stomach virus that troubled him during the week and that, coupled with him not practicing, was the reasoning behind holding him out.
