    08/29/16DBMichael GriffinBackQUESTIONABLEGriffin got the start at safety opposite Harrison Smith in Sunday's preseason game, but left in the second quarter due to a back injury and was later seen leaving the locker room on crutches, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports.

    Griffin had one tackle before departing. He got the start in the third preseason game over Andrew Sendejo, but head coach Mike Zimmer indicated the competition isn't decided. However, Griffin's injury could make Sendejo the starter if it's an issue for the start of the regular season.

    08/29/16TEMyCole PruittLower LegQUESTIONABLEPruitt left Sunday's preseason win over San Diego with a left leg injury and will have an MRI on Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Pruitt had one reception for 11 yards during the game but lost a fumble on the play and was also apparently injured. Pruitt isn't likely to have a large role in the offense as long as Kyle Rudolph remains healthy. He may also have been bypassed on the depth chart by rookie David Morgan due to his blocking ability.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/28/16DBAntone ExumLegQUESTIONABLEExum left Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers with a leg injury and is set to have an X-Ray performed.

    Exum appeared to have injured his leg during a kickoff return and was eventually carted off the field to the team's locker room. The severity of the injury remains unclear at this point in time, but we should have a better indication of the specifics once the results of his X-Ray have been released. Exum is expected to start the season as a depth option at safety.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/24/16DBAnthony HarrisUndisclosedPROBABLEHarris remained in the starting lineup at safety and had six tackles and defended a pass in Sunday's win over Chicago.

    Harris got the start with Harrison Smith out. He could start again next week if Smith remains sidelined.

    (Updated 12/22/2015)
    08/24/16DBTre RobersonHandQUESTIONABLERoberson is dealing with a broken bone in his right hand, Joel Badzinski of the Pioneer Press reports.

    Roberson suffered the injury during the Vikings' preseason opener and originally attempted to play through the injury. However, after the medical staff discovered the break, they held him out of practice last week, which eventually forced him to remain sidelined during the team's second preseason game against the Seahawks. Roberson claims he won't need surgery, but he'll still have to wear "medical gear" for roughly two weeks. It's a tough break for the 23-year-old converted cornerback, who is not a lock to make the final roster.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/23/16TERhett EllisonKneeQUESTIONABLEEllison (knee) has been activated from the PUP list, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in last year's season finale against the Packers. He's a key blocker in Minnesota's offensive scheme, so a return to full health could boost the running game. If Ellison isn't able to play, rookie tight end David Morgan has been drawing praise for his blocking ability and could see more snaps early in the season.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/19/16DBXavier RhodesHamstringQUESTIONABLERhodes (hamstring) did not play in Sunday's preseason win over San Diego.

    He hasn't practiced since suffering the injury in the team's second preseason game. It's very unlikely he'll play in the final preseason game, so we may not know his status until shortly before the first game of the regular season.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/13/16LBEric KendricksHamstringPROBABLEKendricks (hamstring) participated in practice for a second consecutive day Wednesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Kendricks hasn't played in a preseason game after suffering an injury in early August. It sounds like he'll be ready for the regular season even if he doesn't appear in a regular season contest.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/10/16DLScott CrichtonUndisclosedPROBABLEThe Vikings listed linebacker Anthony Barr (knee) as inactive Sunday against the Jets.
    08/10/16LBEdmond RobinsonUndisclosedPROBABLERobinson had five tackles in Sunday's win over the Giants, despite playing just six snaps on defense.

    Robinson started two games at linebacker with Anthony Barr hurt, but moved back to a mostly special teams role on Sunday.

    (Updated 12/28/2015)
    08/10/16LBBrandon WattsUndisclosedPROBABLEWatts had two tackles and played just 23 snaps at weak-side linebacker in Sunday's win at Oakland.

    Watts started at weak-side linebacker with Chad Greenway moving to middle linebacker while Eric Kendricks out with a rib injury. However, Watts has been coming off the field in nickel and passing situations, which limits his fantasy value.

    (Updated 11/16/2015)
    08/09/16DBTerence NewmanUndisclosedPROBABLENewman will not travel with the team for Friday's preseason matchup with the Bengals due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Newman missed practice both Monday and Tuesday, although the specifics of the injury have yet to be released. It isn't expected to be anything serious, though, so the Vikings are likely just being cautious with their 37-year-old veteran. Newman will remain in Minnesota for rest and recovery, but we should see his status updated by the start of next week. Look for Trae Waynes to take the starters' reps during Friday's preseason outing versus the Bengals.

    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeAnkleOUTHeinicke (ankle) has shed the walking boot he wore to protect his foot from further injury, Scout.com reports.

    Heinicke declined to talk about his injury after practice, reportedly saying it was time to go lift weights. If those were indeed his plans, his foot may be further along than anticipated. However, Shaun Hill has done nothing to relinquish his role as the backup to starter Teddy Bridgewater, and the Vikings project to carry only two quarterbacks on their active roster entering the regular season. Ultimately, Heinicke appears destined for either the practice squad or injured reserve list in 2016.

    08/21/16TEEric EbronAnkleQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ebron practiced Tuesday for the first time since early August, but he was then held out both Wednesday and Thursday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback, but if so, his Week 1 status may now be in danger. The 23-year-old tight end hasn't played in any preseason games and probably won't be ready for Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bills.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/17/16TEAndrew QuarlessSuspensionSUSPENDQuarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/16/16LBDeAndre LevyUndisclosedQUESTIONABLELevy (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.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEMatthew MulliganUndisclosedPROBABLEMulligan (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

    The nature of his injury is unknown, but he is not expected to be dealing with anything long-term. Mulligan had been serving as Detroit's primary blocking tight end while Brandon Pettigrew (knee) resided on the PUP list to begin training camp, and was tabbed as the team's No. 2 tight end behind Eric Ebron (leg) on the first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. Now, with Ebron currently sidelined as well, the Lions will be without their top-three overall tight ends for foreseeable future.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    07/30/16RBGeorge WinnFootQUESTIONABLEWinn -- who had been an exclusive rights free agent -- has signed his contract tender with the Lions, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick continue to slot in as as the Lions' top two running backs, while Winn (who recorded just four carries for one yard in seven 2015 appearances for Detroit) and Zach Zenner will jostle for depth slotting in the team's backfield along with free agent acquisition Stevan Ridley.

    (Updated 04/10/2016)
    07/29/16TEOrson CharlesSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL suspended Saints tight end Orson Charles for the first game of the season, reports the NFL Network. The suspension was for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.
    07/28/16RBAmeer AbdullahShoulderPROBABLEAbdullah (shoulder) gained 16 yards on four carries and failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

    As expected, Abdullah started but played limited snaps in his first game action since last season, getting all of his touches during the first quarter. He did appear to have a 15-yard touchdown scamper on the first play of the second quarter, but it was called back due to a teammate's holding penalty. In addition to starting on offense, Abdullah may get some opportunities in the return game, though his role as the lead back could limit his special teams contributions to crucial situations. He resumed contact work in practice last week, and there's been no suggestion of any setback with his shoulder.

    05/26/16DLCaraun ReidAnkleDOUBTFULLions defensive tackle Caraun Reid (ankle) practiced for the first time since Aug. 20, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports.
    04/13/16DBGlover QuinAnklePROBABLEQuin (ankle) practiced in near-full capacity during the first day of minicamp, the Lions' official site reports.

    Quin had been taking it easy since undergoing offseason ankle surgery, but participated in near-full capacity during Tuesday's session. For reference, Quin never participated in any team drills during OTAs. However, now in minicamp, he lined up as the starting free safety during team drills, admittedly only for a portion of the snaps, though. It appears Quin has been setback-free in his recovery, and will continue to amp up his workload in practice as the offseason wears on.
