Morgan won't return to Sunday's game versus the Lions due to a knee injury, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Morgan was bothered by a knee injury earlier this year, and it's unclear if this is related. It mainly hurts the Vikings' depth and run-blocking abilities, since Morgan has just five catches for 36 yards this season. The Vikings have a bye in Week 10, so Morgan will have additional time to recover.
Morgan (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and will play Thursday against the Rams, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
Morgan will return after missing Week 3's loss to the Bills. He averaged 26 offensive snaps through two games and hauled in three targets for 28 yards. Kyle Rudolph remains the Vikings' No. 1 tight end, so Morgan isn't viable in fantasy formats.
Morgan (knee) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.
Morgan was also a limited participant during Monday's practice, as the Vikings get ready to face the Rams on Thursday night. The 25-year-old tight end is mostly utilized as a blocker, but he does have three catches on three targets for 28 yards in two games this season.
Morgan (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Morgan was sidelined at practice all week, so he was always seen as a long shot to take part in Sunday's contest. In Morgan's absence, Tyler Conklin is expected to serve as the primary backup to starter Kyle Rudolph at tight end.
Morgan (knee) did not practice Thursday, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.
Morgan's utilization in Minnesota's offense comes mostly as a blocker, so the second-string tight end's questionable availability isn't likely to have a large impact the Vikings' air attack. If Morgan were to miss any time while nursing his knee injury, Tyler Conklin would serve as the primary backup to Kyle Rudolph.
