Vikings elevate safety Myles Dorn from practice squad following injury to Lewis Cine

·1 min read

The Vikings on Saturday elevated safety Myles Dorn from the practice squad for Sunday’s game against Green Bay at U,S. Bank Stadium, an indication rookie safety Lewis Cine might not be ready to make his NFL debut.

Cine, taken with the No. 32 pick in the first round, was listed as questionable Friday due to a knee injury. Head coach Kevin O’Connell said he aggravated a previous injury before Thursday’s practice and that he was “truly questionable for the game.” Cine was limited in practice on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday.

Cine didn’t want to talk about his injury on Friday but told the Pioneer Press he was hoping to play.

“That’d be huge,” he said. “That’s the only thing I wish for, hope for. Only thing I want.”

Cine was in the mix to start for the Vikings before being beaten out in training camp and in the preseason by Camryn Bynum. The Vikings’ other starting safety is Harrison Smith, and they also have Josh Metellus on the 53-man roster.

Dorn is in his third season with the Vikings. He was on injured reserve in 2020 and was on the practice squad last season, although he was elevated to play in nine games.
