Ellefson (knee) was ruled out ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official website reports. Ellefson wasn't able to practice at all ahead of Week 6, so his unavailability shouldn't be a surprise. The 6-foot-3 tight end will have the bye week to get healthy before Minnesota returns to action against the Cowboys on Oct. 31.
Ellefson (neck) isn't listed on the injury report heading into Sunday's game against the Browns. Ellefson missed Thursday's practice due to a neck injury but recovered quickly enough to avoid being on Friday's injury report altogether. The reserve tight end has been used exclusively in a blocking role thus far, as he's yet to have a ball thrown his way this season.
Ellefson (neck) didn't participate in Thursday's practice. Ellefson wasn't on the injury report Wednesday, so it's concerning that this issue popped up midweek. Meanwhile, Tyler Conklin (elbow/glute) was a limited participant, leaving Chris Herndon as the only healthy tight end for the Vikings. Ellefson and Conklin will look to elevate their participation Friday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Browns.
Ellefson was claimed off waivers by the Vikings on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Ellefson was waived by the Jaguars on Tuesday, but he'll have a spot on the Vikings' season-opening roster. The 2020 UDFA appeared in seven games for Jacksonville as a rookie and caught one pass for 10 yards.
The Jaguars waived Ellefson on Tuesday. Ellefson appeared in seven games -- catching one of four targets for 10 yards -- before landing on injured reserve during his rookie season. The 24-year-old is a likely candidate to join the Jaguars' practice squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
