by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed Collins to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday.

Collins' spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of Brett Jones (knee) on injured reserve. The third-year pro spent the first 10 weeks of the season on Minnesota's practice squad, and he now projects to play a depth role along the offensive line.

Collins (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

Collins reportedly suffered a season-ending elbow injury in last week's practice. The versatile reserve guard/tackle's injury is a significant loss to the Vikings' O-line, which already lost starting left guard Nick Easton (neck) for the year due to an offseason surgery.

Collins (elbow) will likely miss the rest of the 2018 season due to an elbow injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Collins had been nursing an elbow injury since the preseason, the severity of which appears serious enough to have ended his season. The 25-year-old was expected to play a depth role on Minnesota's O-line, so the team seems likely to search for a replacement on waivers.
