Vikings' Dru Samia: Back from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samia (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Samia was placed on the COVID-19 list early last week after testing positive for the virus, but he's since cleared the league's protocols. The 23-year-old ceded starting duties at right guard to Ezra Cleveland prior to his positive test, though Cleveland has recently been dealing with an ankle issue.

Samia (wrist) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was sidelined by the wrist injury in Week 6, but he was able to get healthy over the bye week. Samia should return to the starting post at right guard, though previous starter Pat Elflein (thumb) is nearing his return from injured reserve.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samia (wrist) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Samia has recently started at right guard in place of Pat Elflein (thumb), but he'll now be forced to miss at least one contest due to a wrist issue. In his stead, Brett Jones stands to slot into the starting lineup.
