by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Sherels had spent his entire nine-year career with the Vikings prior to signing with the Saints. A backup for most of his career, he'll figure to provide the Saints secondary depth while also contributing on special teams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) completed his rehab and has resumed running, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Sherels was forced to sit out the season finale after sustaining the foot injury Week 16 against the Lions. The 31-year-old's health is paramount as he enters free agency looking to land a job as a returner.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Unavailable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Sherels will remain sidelined as he nurses a foot injury sustained during last week's win over the Lions. Adam Thielen and Holton Hill will see increased work returning punts as long as Sherels is unable to play.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Out for remainder of contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's game.

With Sherels out, Adam Thielen is the likely candidate to assume primary punt returning duties. Sherels' status for next week's regular season finale should become clearer following Sunday's game.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Leaves game with foot issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a foot injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The extent of Sherels' foot injury is still uncertain. Sherels' temporary absence is most felt on special teams. For the time being, Adam Thielen and Holton Hill seem the likely candidates to slide in as the primary punt returners.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Practices Wednesday in full capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) participated in full during Wednesday's practice session.

After sitting out the last three weeks, Sherels participated fully Wednesday, which puts him in a great position to retake the field in Week 6 against the Cardinals. While he doesn't provide much from a defensive standpoint, Sherels is a valuable contributor on special teams, working both on the punt and kick returns.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Sherels was limited in practice all week but will still be unavailable for Sunday's contest in Philadelphia. It's still good progress for Sherels -- who didn't practice all of last week -- so it's possible the Vikings could get their primary return man back for Week 6.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) didn't practice Wednesday and won't play Thursday against the Rams, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

Sherels hasn't logged a defensive snap yet this season, so his absence will only be felt on special teams, where he serves as a returner. Rookie Mike Hughes is expected to field punts and kicks in Sherels' stead.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Not practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) sat out Tuesday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Sherels suffered a rib injury in Week 2 and was inactive Sunday against the Bills. The 30-year-old cornerback will have to make a dramatic recovery if he expects to play Thursday versus the Bills, though that seems unlikely. Mike Hughes is set to take Sherels' place as the team's punt and kick returner.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Sherels suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Packers, and he wasn't even able to put in limited work during this week of preparation. Sherels' absence will mainly be felt on special teams, as the Vikings will now likely lean on cornerback Mike Hughes to return punts and kicks Sunday.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury.

Sherels' injury was initially classified as a chest issue when he departed Sunday's tie with the Packers, but the Vikings have since clarified their top return man's setback. Sherels will likely need to practice at some point this week to avoid an inactive status for the Week 3 contest against the Bills.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Exits game with chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a chest injury.

Sherels managed to suit up in Week 2 after nursing a hamstring injury, but was forced out after suffering a chest injury of undisclosed severity. As long as Sherels remains sidelined, Mike Hughes will serve as the Vikings' primary kick and punt returner.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Sherels was able to practice fully after being limited earlier in the week, and appears to have recovered from the hamstring injury he had been nursing. One of the Vikings' top special teams performers, Sherels is trending towards taking the field against San Francisco on Sunday.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Hurts leg Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels suffered a leg injury during Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Sherels gets most of his snaps on special teams, and he also works as a returner. If his injury is serious, the team will turn to Mike Hughes to field kicks.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Returning to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels re-signed Wednesday with the Vikings on a one-year contract, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A top special teams performer, Sherels will return to the only team he has known during his NFL career for a ninth season. The 30-year-old averaged 9.5 yards on punt returns and 24.6 yards on kickoff returns, taking the field for 319 special-teams snaps.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Totals 643 return yards in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels had 271 yards on 11 kickoff returns and 372 yards on 39 punt returns in 16 games for the Vikings in 2017.

Sherels had six total tackles this season but played only 20 defensive snaps. The 30-year-old is likely to garner some interest as a returner this offseason as he enters the 2018 season as an unrestricted free agent.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Back as punt returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels returned two punts for an average of 5.5 yards in Monday's win over the Saints.

Sherels won the team's punt return job again and also could be used at times on kickoffs. He won't get significant playing time on defense unless injuries strike but he remains a valuable special teams player.

December 24, 2016 01:35 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) is active for Saturday's contest against Green Bay.

Sherels missed the Vikings' past few games but was able to practice in full all week this week and shouldn't be at all limited in the game Saturday. He'll likely resume his role as punt returner and depth defensive back.

December 10, 2016 12:35 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Sherels' absence will allow for Adam Thielen to once again take over punt returning duties. It'll be Sherels' third consecutive missed game, but he'll look to return in Week 15 against the Colts.

December 9, 2016 04:40 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Sherels was forced out of the Vikings Week 13 loss to the Cowboys due to the rib injury, and he could miss additional action in Week 14 as well. Adam Thielen figures to continue returning punts for as long as Sherels remains sidelined.
