The Vikings activated Doctson (hamstring) from injured reserve Friday.
Doctson will fill the opening on the 53-man roster that was created by the Vikings' recent release of fellow wideout Davion Davis. With Adam Thielen (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Broncos, Doctson's return comes at an opportune time to bolster Minnesota's receiving corps. He could have a chance to unseat Laquon Treadwell for the No. 3 receiver role right away in Week 11.
