One Vikings Player Earns NFL All-Pro Honors
The Minnesota Vikings wrapped up their regular season with a record of 10-6 and are set up to take on the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs this Sunday at Noon.
Before the games got underway this weekend, the AP released their first-team and second-team All-Pro selections.
One Minnesota Vikings player was named to the All-Pro team, Linebacker Eric Kendricks.
Kendricks, 27, is in his sixth year in the league and had a career season. He led the team with 110 tackles, forced two fumbles, recovered two fumbles, had a team-high 12 pass breakups. The 12 pass breakups were also tied for first in the league by a linebacker.
Kendricks, who did not make the Pro Bowl, injured his quad during the team's Week 16 matchup with the Packers. He was limited in practice on Thursday as the team gets set for its playoff matchup with the Saints, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin.
