Smith and Rudolph, who scored his seventh touchdown of the season Sunday, are going through the league-mandated concussion protocol. It is unclear when they will return to practice.
The Vikings (6-5) play at Green Bay (7-4) on Sunday.
LB Jasper Brinkley sprained his shoulder against the Bears, but it’s not serious. Frazier said that Brinkley would be “a little sore when we get back [to practice] on Wednesday.”
RT Phil Loadholt had a little knee inflammation, but he’s expected to face the Packers at Lambeau Field.
RB Adrian Peterson had a shoulder strain, and Frazier said the training staff would monitor him throughout the week, but it “shouldn’t be a problem as far as getting ready for the ball game."
