Sendejo had eight tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers.
Sendejo played 65 of 81 defensive snaps Thursday after playing 82 total defensive snaps through the first three weeks of the season. The veteran safety should continue to see increased opportunities in the secondary if Ronald Darby (hamstring), Sidney Jones (hamstring) and Avonte Maddox (head/neck) are forced to miss additional time.
Sendejo recorded three tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Falcons.
Sendejo managed a disruptive performance despite playing only 20 snaps on defense (30 percent). The veteran's rotational role keeps him off the fantasy radar in most IDP formats, but Sendejo could conceivably earn increased snaps if he continues to impress versus the Lions in Week 3.
Sendejo came to terms with the Eagles on a one-year contract Monday, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports reports.
With Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod still atop the roster in Philadelphia, it isn't likely that Sendejo will start, though he could play a key role in certain packages. The 31-year-old has amassed 58 starts, 356 tackles and six interceptions in his NFL career.
The Vikings will not exercise Sendejo's $5.5 million option for 2019, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Sendejo missed much of last season due to a groin injury, racking up just 27 tackles and one pass defended across five games. Despite coming off a down year, the 31-year-old realistically could find a starting role elsewhere in the league when free agency kicks off March 13.
Sendejo (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Sendejo suffered the groin injury in Week 5 against the Eagles and hasn't seen the field since. His placement on IR ends his 2018 campaign, where he racked up 27 tackles (21 solo) and one pass defended. Anthony Harris should continue to start at strong safety for the Vikings with Sendejo out.
Sendejo (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Sendejo will miss his fifth straight game with the groin injury after having not practiced since early November. Anthony Harris should continue to see starting snaps at safety in Sendejo's continued absence.
Sendejo (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Chicago.
Sendejo hasn't played since sustaining the groin injury Week 5 against the Bears and will miss his fifth straight game. Jayron Kearse, George Iloka and Anthony Harris have all seen significant defensive snaps in Sendejo's absence thus far.
Sendejo (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Sendejo has not played since Week 5 due to a groin injury, but the Vikings have plenty of depth at safety with George Iloka, Anthony Harris and Jayron Kearse all capable of healthy snap counts across from Harrison Smith.
Sendejo is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Detroit.
Sendejo has missed the last three games with the groin issue but appears on track for a return Sunday after being a limited participant at practice this week. George Iloka would continue to slot in at strong safety should Sendejo be unable to suit up.
Sendejo (groin) was limited during Wednesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of The Pioneer Press reports.
Sendejo has missed Minnesota's last three games with a groin injury, though he looks to be on track to play Week 9 versus Matthew Stafford and the Lions. The eight-year veteran has 27 tackles on the season.
Sendejo (groin) will not play against the Saints on Sunday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Sendejo will miss his third consecutive game due to a lingering groin injury. The veteran safety remains without a recovery timeline, and George Iloka will continue slotting into the starting lineup as long as Sendejo remains sidelined.
Sendejo (groin) will not play Sunday against the Jets, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Sendejo was kept out of last week's contest against the Cardinals with this injury as well. The 31-year-old hasn't been able to practice in any capacity the last two weeks. George Iloka will likely step up in Sendejo's absence again.
Sendejo (groin) did not practice Thursday.
Sendejo was sidelined for Sunday's win over the Cardinals and has yet to participate in practice this week, so the starting safety appears unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game against the Jets. If Sendejo does miss any more time to due injury, expect the trio of Jayron Kearse, Anthony Harris and George Iloka to once again see increased snaps opposite Harrison Smith.
Sendejo (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Sendejo did not participate in practice throughout the week, foreshadowing his Week 6 absence. The Vikings have a trio of players to choose from as they look to Jayron Kearse, Anthony Harris or George Iloka to replace Sendejo at strong safety next to Harrison Smith.
Sendejo was absent from practice Wednesday due to a groin injury.
Sendejo's groin issue wasn't apparent in Sunday's game against the Eagles, but a full absence from practice isn't a good sign. He still has some time to retake the field ahead of Sunday's contest against the Cardinals, with Friday's injury report revealing more about the probability of him suiting up.
Sendejo started at strong safety, had three total tackles and played all 67 of the defense's snaps in Sunday's win over the 49ers. He was credited with breaking up one pass, according to Pro Football Focus.
Sendejo got all the snaps at safety, momentarily putting to rest the rumblings that he may lose playing time in the wake of the Vikings' signing of George Ilkoa late in the preseason. Ilkoa didn't play on defense Sunday, so Sendejo may not have any competition in the near future.
Sendejo had a tackle and played 30 snaps on defense in Friday's preseason game, according to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Sendejo looks set to start at strong safety, but he could see fewer snaps this season after the Vikings signed free agent George Ilkoa. Minnesota only signed Ilkoa in the past week after he was cut from the Bengals, so it's not clear yet what role he'll have in the secondary. However, Ilkoa could have a larger role given his previous history with head coach Mike Zimmer in Cincinnati.
Sendejo (calf) was held out of OTAs and minicamp this spring, Sam Ekstrom of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
It isn't certain if Sendejo's absence is related to the calf injury he suffered against the Eagles in January's NFC championship game. Furthermore, it isn't clear if the safety will be back on the field in time for training camp in late July. If he isn't, either Jayron Kearse or cornerback Terence Newman -- who saw reps at safety during spring workouts -- will presumably fill in with the starters.
Sendejo (calf) recorded 80 tackles, seven pass breakups and two interceptions over 13 games in 2017.
Overshadowed by a pair of 2017 first-team All-Pros in his own secondary (Harrison Smith and Xavier Rhodes), Sendejo quietly put together an outstanding season in his own right and ultimately finished the year as Pro Football Focus' 17th-ranked safety out of 89 qualifiers. In fact, opposing quarterbacks managed a meager 69.6 passer rating when throwing into Sendejo's coverage and his 80 tackles checks in at 22nd among all defensive backs. The 30-year-old veteran, who remains under contract with Minnesota for another two seasons, injured his calf during the Vikings' NFC championship loss to the Eagles but there's been no reported concern over his availability for the start of offseason workouts.
Sendejo injured his calf and is doubtful to return to Sunday's NFC championship game against the Eagles, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.
The nature of Sendejo's injury isn't clear. Jayron Kearse will fill in for him at strong safety for the remainder of the game.
