Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is off the field after fracturing his foot during a game at Dallas. Coach Leslie Frazier called the Rudolph’s injury a ‘significant loss’, with Rudolph to miss Thursday’s game against Washington.
“That was on the touchdown play,” Frazier said, “He just got twisted there. I think (a Cowboys player) fell on his foot when he was tackling him. It was a very significant injury for him for our team.” Although the coach has high hopes for Rudolph’s recovery other players will step up to fill Rudolph’s position for now.

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury.
Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:
