Vikings' Hercules Mata'afa: Gets playing time off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata'afa played 26 of the defense's 74 snaps in Sunday's win over Atlanta. He had two QB hurries, according to Pro Football Focus.

The undrafted free agent out of Washington State missed all of last season with a torn ACL. He's back to full strength and made the roster as a reserve defensive lineman.

Vikings' Hercules Mata'afa: Back healthy for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata'afa has fully recovered from a torn ACL he suffered in OTAs last season, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

After joining the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State, Mata'afa made a positive impression in workouts before tearing his ACL in June. The Vikings toyed with using the undersized Mata'afa (6-foot-2, 254 pounds) at linebacker before his injury, but he's back to playing defensive tackle as he prepares for the 2019 campaign.
