Compton, who will turn 30 in May, started 14 games at left guard for the Vikings last season. The seventh-year veteran also has experience at right guard and right tackle, and will look to make use of his versatility while protecting quarterback Sam Darnold.
Compton (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Compton picked up a shoulder injury during last week's win over the Lions and remains up in the air for Sunday's must-win game versus Chicago. If Compton were to sit out the season finale, Danny Isidora would likely draw the start at left guard.
Compton (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Compton aggravated the knee injury in last Sunday's game against the Bears and began the week as a limited practice participant, but he faced no limitations Friday. The 29-year-old should take up his usual starting post at left guard against Green Bay.
Compton (knee) left Sunday's game against the Bears in the second half, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.
Compton suffered an MCL sprain in Week 7, causing him to miss the next few games before being deemed ready to play Sunday, though his knee was still clearly giving him trouble. It remains to be seen if the left guard will be healthy enough to go against the Packers, but he seemed optimistic about his status, per the report. Danny Isidora is expected to see an increased workload if Compton is inactive again.
Compton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Compton was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, but appears to have fully recovered from an MCL sprain sustained Week 7. The starting left guard will therefore suit up Week 11, and stands to face a tough matchup against Chicago's defensive line.
