  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Sidelined to start minicamp

    Osborn didn't practice during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp due to an undisclosed injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The severity of Osborn's injury is unclear, but he joined fellow wideout Ihmir Smith-Marsette (leg) as a non-participant Tuesday. Despite their offseason injuries, Osborn and Smith Marsette are slated to be the top two receivers behind Minnesota's dynamic duo of Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Four targets in Week 18

    Osborn caught one of four targets for 21 yards and one score during Week 18's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    Osborn finished the 2021 campaign with 50 receptions for 655 yards and seven touchdowns. He started the season off hot with 12 receptions for 167 yards through the first two weeks, but he took a backseat as Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen demanded the majority of Kirk Cousins' attention. However, after Thielen went down with a high-ankle sprain in Week 13, Osborn once again stepped up his game. Over the last six contests of the year, Osborn totaled 19 catches for 290 yards and five touchdowns -- including one in each of the Vikings' last three games.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Hits pay dirt in loss

    Osborn had three receptions (five targets) for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Green Bay.

    Osborn stepped into the starting lineup in place of Adam Thielen (ankle) as expected, and he delivered a strong fantasy performance with a second-half touchdown. The 24-year-old was already seeing his role increase prior to Thielen's season-ending injury last week, scoring four of his six touchdowns over the last five weeks. The Vikings will take on the Bears in a meaningless game (from a playoffs standpoint), but Osborn and the rest of Minnesota's offensive options would benefit if Kirk Cousins (illness) is able to return.

  • Vikings' K.J. Osborn: Locked in for No. 2 receiver spot

    Osborn is expected to serve as Minnesota's No. 2 receiver from the remainder of the season after the Vikings placed Adam Thielen (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Osborn had already held the No. 2 role for most of the past four games with Thielen either out or exiting early due to the left ankle sprain. The second-year wideout has a four-game streak with at least three catches and a 79 percent snap share, averaging 3.8 receptions for 54.8 yards on 6.5 targets in that time while scoring three times. He also put up decent numbers in September as Minnesota's No. 3 receiver, but Osborn was unable to sustain the volume when Thielen and Jefferson were both simultaneously healthy. While he may be a distant second to Jefferson now, Osborn appears solidly ahead of Dede Westbrook, Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Dan Chisena as the Vikings prepare to close out their season against the Packers (Week 17) and Bears (Week 18).
