Zach Line had two carries for two yards and one reception for 49 yards in Sunday's win over Detroit. He played a season-high 19 snaps on offense, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The Minnesota Vikings don't utilize a fullback much in the offense as he rarely gets more than a carry or two.
Line has two carries in his career, so it's unlikely he'll continue to get goal-line carries the rest of the season, but it's a situation to monitor.
It was also Line's first career rushing attempt in three seasons. The Vikings rarely use a fullback and Adrian Peterson is still their goal-line back, so this was a rare misdirection play where Line got the ball.
Other inactive players included safety
The Vikings are 4 1/2-point underdogs.
Barr, Blanton and Floyd had already been ruled out prior to Sunday. All three players are dealing with knee injuries. Blanton also tweaked his akle. The other four players listed are considered healthy scratches.
