Jennings still managed to deliver his highest yardage total of the season, though he's still looking for his first score since Week 1. He's up to 26 receptions and 345 yards heading into his team's Week 8 matchup with the Buccaneers.

Injury

News
Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen picked up eight tackles and three sacks in his team's 17-16 loss to the Bills in Week 7.

Griffen entered Week 7 with four sacks in six games, but he had delivered a sack in each of his previous two games before blowing up against the Bills.

Captain Munnerlyn
News
The Vikings will have all but one player listed as probable Week 5 against the Packers.

Jerome Felton, Michael Mauti, Jerick McKinnon, Captain Munnerlyn, Josh Robinson and Rodney Smith will all give it a go Thursday.

McKinnon is expected to see time at running back behind Matt Asiata. He entered the week with an ankle injury, but will play through it. 

Antone Exum
News
The Vikings signed safety Antone Exum, a sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, to a four-year contract. Only two Minnesota draft picks remain unsigned.
Matt Asiata
News
Jerick McKinnon has looked like a better option for the Vikings than Matt Asiata, and it seems like the team is ready to hand the running game over to him full time.

McKinnon has seen his role grow greatly over the last four games, but was still splitting carries with Asiata up until two weeks ago.McKinnon was clearly the top option in Week 7 against the Bills, however, as he received 19 carries to Asiata's six. More importantly, he looked like a back who is worthy of that kind of role, as he paced the team with 103 yards on the ground.

Asiata is not going away, and could end up stealing some goal-line carries from McKinnon, who has yet to score this season. However, if you could only own one back in Minnesota, McKinnon has to be the guy. Especially with a matchup against the ever-vulnerable Buccaneers' defense on the way in Week 8. 

Tom Johnson
News
The Vikings are expected to sign former Saints defensive lineman Tom Johnson on Thursday, reports ESPN. The deal is expected to be for one-year and $845,000 but could pay him up to another $600,000 in incentives.

Johnson, who played defensive end in the Saints' 3-4 scheme, had interest from the Cowboys, Bears, Dolphins and Seahawks in addition to the Vikings.

Josh Robinson
News
The Vikings will have all but one player listed as probable Week 5 against the Packers.

Jerome Felton, Michael Mauti, Jerick McKinnon, Captain Munnerlyn, Josh Robinson and Rodney Smith will all give it a go Thursday.

McKinnon is expected to see time at running back behind Matt Asiata. He entered the week with an ankle injury, but will play through it. 

Chandler Harnish
News
The Vikings announced they added quarterback Chandler Harnish, receiver Donte Foster and safety Pierre Warren to the practice squad. Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson was released from the squad.
Adam Thielen
News
Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen led all Minnesota receivers with 57 yards Thursday against the Packers.

With the team getting blown out, Thielen had more opportunities to show what he could do. He didn't receive his first reception until late in the third quarter, but still managed to make an impact. Thielen made his final three receptions on the team's final drive. 

Thielen will take on the Lions Week 6. 

Brandon Watts
News
The Vikings have made FB Zach Line, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL David Yankey, OL Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton inactive Week 6 against the Lions.

Rudolph is the only player who had been ruled out heading into Sunday. Greenway was doubtful, however, so it wasn't likely he would suit up. 

Scott Crichton
News
The Vikings have made FB Zach Line, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL David Yankey, OL Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton inactive Week 6 against the Lions.

Peterson remains on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list and is not allowed to participate in any team activities.

Joe Berger
News
The Vikings will re-sign offensive lineman Joe Berger to a one-year deal, according to the Star Tribune Tuesday. Berger spent the previous three seasons with the Vikings primarily as a backup, but did make two starts a year ago. 
Blair Walsh
News
Vikings kicker Blair Walsh connected on all three of his field-goal attempts, including a long of 55 yards, while adding an extra point in his team's 17-16 loss to the Bills in Week 7.

Walsh broke a scoreless tie late in the first quarter with a 40-yard kick then delivered from 55 yards out with 15 seconds left in the first half. He put the Vikings up six points with a 33-yard kick early in the fourth quarter, but the Vikings were unable to keep the lead. Walsh has made 14 of 16 attempts this season.

David Yankey
News
The Vikings have made FB Zach Line, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL David Yankey, OL Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton inactive Week 6 against the Lions.

Rudolph is the only player who had been ruled out heading into Sunday. Greenway was doubtful, however, so it wasn't likely he would suit up. 

Andrew Sendejo
News

Bridgewater didn't play particularly well in his first career road start, but he still had the Vikings in position to win the game before the Bills notched a go-ahead score with one second left on the clock. The rookie's touchdown came on a quick pass to Cordarelle Patterson on first and goal from the four-yard line, with the receiver doing the work to get into the end zone after catching the ball near the line of scrimmage.

Joe Banyard

The Vikings backup pass-catchers didn't contribute much Week 6 against the Packers.

Tight end MarQueis Gray led the bunch with 16 yards on one reception. Position mate Rhett Ellison finished behind Gray with one catch for 12 yards.

Rhett Ellison

The Vikings pass catchers failed to produce much Week 6.

Tight end Chase Ford finished second in receiving after catching four passes for 37 yards. Greg Jennings managed to come up with three catches for 33 yards. Charles Johnson also got into the act, catching two passes for 22 yards. Jarius Wright, who has been strong lately, caught four balls, but gained just 17 yards. He did have a rushing attempt, and gained 21 yards. Rhett Ellison caught one pass for 4 yards. 

The group will take on the Bills Week 7.

Harrison Smith
News
As expected, the Vikings have ruled tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) out for Week 7 at Buffalo. Other players ruled out on the final injury report were: linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring) and defensive end Corey Wootton (lower back).

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (elbow, ankle) and linebacker Chad Greenway (hand, rib) were deemed questionable, while cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (ankle), wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (hip), tight end Chase Ford (foot), safety Harrison Smith (ankle) and linebacker Michael Mauti (illness) were officially ruled probable for Sunday.
Zach Line
News
The Vikings have made FB Zach Line, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL David Yankey, OL Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton inactive Week 6 against the Lions.

Rudolph is the only player who had been ruled out heading into Sunday. Greenway was doubtful, however, so it wasn't likely he would suit up. 

Jasper Brinkley
News
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer announced Wednesday that Jasper Brinkley will start at middle linebacker Week 1 at St. Louis, beating out Audie Cole for the job. Zimmer also said Robert Blanton will start at strong safety.
Cordarrelle Patterson
News
Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson found the end zone for the first time since Week 1 Sunday, though that doesn't mean his Fantasy outlook has changed much.

The story in Week 7 remained the same as it has been for most of the season for Patterson, despite his touchdown. He scored on a 4-yard screen pass in the second quarter, one of just two receptions on the game for him. He had just 9 yards total in the game, and that isn't even his worst performance of the season.

Patterson has just 32 yards on six receptions over the last three games, and has been a total non-factor as a rusher as well. We entered the season with high hopes for Patterson, but he just hasn't looked up to it yet. At this point, Patterson is still best left at the end of your bench, just in case he does figure it out. 

Austin Wentworth
News
The Vikings have made FB Zach Line, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL David Yankey, OL Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton inactive Week 6 against the Lions.

Rudolph is the only player who had been ruled out heading into Sunday. Greenway was doubtful, however, so it wasn't likely he would suit up.

Christian Ponder
News
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder had a tough time Thursday against the Packers.

Ponder completed 22 of 44 passes, for 222 yards and two interceptions. He did not throw a touchdown during the contest. Ponder was constantly under pressure during the game. He was sacked six times. Due to constant pressure, Ponder was forced to settle for short completions throughout the start. When he did go long, Ponder's throw wound up being inaccurate. Ponder did manage to find the end zone late, running in a touchdown with his team down by 42. Ponder had 15 yards on three rushing attempts. 

Ponder will take on the Lions Week 6 if Teddy Bridgewater is unable to play again.
