  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Suffers leg injury

    Chisena, who'd been dealing with a lower leg injury during training camp, sustained a similar injury in Sunday's preseason loss at Las Vegas, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He had one reception for 22 yards on two targets before the injury.

    Chisena is a key player on special teams, especially punt coverage. Chisena appeared in 11 games last year, playing all his snaps on special teams. He's a long shot to win any role on offense.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Activated by Vikings

    The Vikings activated Chisena from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Chisena was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Chisena will need to produce back-to-back negative tests at least 24 hours apart or complete a 10-day quarantine before he is able to return to team facilities. The wideout hasn't seen more than five offensive snaps in a game this season, so his potential absence shouldn't impact the Vikings' offensive gameplan.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Activated from injured reserve

    Chisena returned to practice last week after spending the minimum three weeks on IR, and he has now officially been added to the 53-man roster. The 26-year-old appeared in 14 games for the Vikings last year but didn't see any snaps on offense. He will likely garner a similar role for Minnesota during the 2021 season.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Cleared for Week 9

    Chisena (hip) isn't on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Chisena should be active, but his role will likely remain limited, as the rookie is yet to play a snap on offense this season.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Held to limited participation

    Chisena (hip) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session.

    The 23-year-old receiver was ruled out of Sunday's NFC North matchup against Green Bay, marking his first game absence of 2020. Chisena has yet to field a single offensive snap during his rookie campaign out of Penn State, though he has played an important special-teams role with an average of 21 snaps per game in that department. Given that he's been able to log consecutive limited sessions in practice Wednesday and Thursday, there's a reasonable chance of him being active for another divisional matchup Week 9 against Detroit.

  • Vikings' Dan Chisena: Unavailable against Packers

    Chisena (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Packers, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Chisena popped up on the injury report Friday as a non-participant in practice, so it's not surprising that he's ruled out ahead of the Week 8 tilt. All of Chisena's contributions this season have been on special teams, so this won't affect the offensive dynamic.
