Wright had five receptions for 24 yards on seven targets in Sunday's win over Chicago. Wright languished on the bench nearly all season but got some unexpected work in the season finale. He finished the season with just 11 receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown. He missed the first four games in part due to a hamstring injury, but he was buried on the depth chart as he even fell behind little-used rookie Laquon Treadwell. Wright is signed trough 2019 and the Vikings would lose over $2 million in dead money if they cut him, so he may return next season. However, his role in the offense is very uncertain.
Wright played five snaps on offense but was not targeted in Thursday's loss at Detroit. Wright looks buried on the depth chart as both Charles Johnson (22) and Laquon Treadwell (34) got more playing time with Stefon Diggs out.
Wright is active for Thursday's game against Detroit, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Wright could see a larger role with Stefon Diggs out with a knee injury. However, it's not clear if Treadwell or Wright would get the bulk of targets as the third receiver, though Wright is likely fourth on the depth chart since Treadwell has seen more action in recent weeks.
Wright had one reception for nine yards on his only target in Sunday's loss at Washington. Wright played just four snaps on offense as he had a limited role. He was only active with Laquon Treadwell out with a hamstring injury. He may return to the bench when Treadwell is healthy.
Wright (coach's decision) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions. Wright has dealt with an ankle injury over the past few weeks, but appears to have returned to full health despite being ruled as a healthy scratch in Week 9. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen will be the top two options at wide receiver for the Vikings once again.
