Eden Prairie, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Minnesota Vikings will have tight end Kyle Rudolph back on the field when the team returns from its bye week to visit the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Rudolph has missed Minnesota's last six games after undergoing surgery in September to repair a sports hernia. The 2012 Pro Bowl MVP put in a second consecutive practice on Friday and is listed as probable on the final injury report.
The fourth-year pro sustained the injury during the Vikings' 20-9 loss at New Orleans on Sept. 21. Rudolph had 10 catches for 96 yards and one touchdown in three games prior to being sidelined.
Reserve offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle) and rookie defensive end Scott Crichton (hip) are the only players on Minnesota's active roster declared questionable for Sunday's NFC North clash.
