Levy (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday morning, ESPN.com reports.
While technically now available to practice, Levy won't necessarily do so Tuesday. He did suggest that he hopes to play in at least one preseason game, but the real goal will be to have him ready for Week 1. Even after missing all of last season with a hip injury and the first three weeks of training camp with an undisclosed issue, Levy possesses an IDP ceiling that's among the best in the league. Few linebackers possess a similar combination of run-stopping and coverage skills.
Ebron (ankle) returned to practice on Tuesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Ebron took to the practice field for the first time since suffering an ankle injury in early August. The tight end was reportedly taking things easy on Tuesday as he eases his way back into the swing of things. There has been no word on if he will participate in Saturday's tilt with the Ravens.
Patterson had two receptions for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. He missed Minnesota's first preseason game with a shoulder injury.
Patterson got time with the first-team offense and got to passes in the flat where he was able to use his speed to miss tackles. It was an encouraging sign that he could have a few plays a game designed for him on offense. However, his playing time is likely to be minimal on offense this season as he'll likely see almost all his action as a kick returner.
Heinicke (ankle) remains in a walking boot since tearing a tendon in his ankle one month ago, The Star Tribune reports.
Heinicke served primarily as the Vikings' third string quarterback one year removed. As he continues to miss valuable time, rookie Joel Stave to have has seen increased reps throughout preseason and is on the verge of making the 53-man roster.
