Vikings make several roster moves

·1 min read

Minnesota made some adjustments to the defensive line before its game against Detroit.

The Vikings activated DT Michael Pierce from IR. Minnesota waived DE Eddie Yarbrough, too. The team activated FB Jake Bargas and S Myles Dorn from the practice squad as well.

Edge rusher Kenny Willekes was added to the roster via COVID-19 replacement. Pierce should start, and Willekes and Yarbrough should add depth to the defensive line rotation.

There is some bad news, though. The team downgraded LB Eric Kendricks to out. Return man Kene Nwangwu, who is dealing with an illness has moved downgraded to questionable. Nwangwu’s presence is needed this game with running back Dalvin Cook out.

However, the Vikings still have backup running back Alexander Mattison. If the team needs to get back to .500, it will have to do so with a depleted running back unit. Just how depleted will depend on Nwangwu.
