Minnesota Vikings snap counts: MyCole Pruitt has season high

Rookie tight end MyCole got a season-high 28 snaps with Rhett Ellison out with a concussion. Get all the Minnesota Vikings' snap counts from Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears.

With Rhett Ellison out with a concussion Sunday against the Chicago Bears, rookie tight end MyCole Pruitt saw a season-high 28 snaps out of the 58 offensive plays the Minnesota Vikings ran in their 23-20 win over the Bears.

Starting tight end Kyle Rudolph continued to be workhorse of the tight end group with 51 snaps, but Ellison had typically played between 20 and 40 snaps a game. Pruitt took over that role, with his 28 snaps besting his previous high of 16 from the Week 3 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Stefon Diggs continues to get more run than any of the other receivers, but Cordarrelle Patterson surpassed Adam Thielen for the first time in five weeks.

Diggs played in 49 of the 58 offensive snaps Sunday against the Chicago Bears, three more than Mike Wallace. Meanwhile, Patterson had nine offensive snaps while Thielen had only four.

Although Adrian Peterson rushed for 103 yards on 20 carries, his 38 snaps on Sunday were his lowest total since the San Diego game, when he played in 33 snaps. Peterson entered the game with hip, ankle and finger injuries that kept him out of practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Matt Asiata got 13 snaps and Jerick McKinnon seven when Peterson wasn’t in the game.

Defensively, the starting backfield of Harrison Smith, Xavier Rhodes, Terence Newman and Andrew Sendejo played all 61 snaps, as did linebacker Anthony Barr.

With defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd out with injury, Tom Johnson got his second start and played in  a season-high 48 snaps while nose tackle Kenrick Ellis, in his second game with the Vikings, played in 14.
