Vikings' Kris Boyd: Goes to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Boyd started four of the past five games for Minnesota. He'll be shut down for the rest of the regular season after posting 34 tackles, two pass breakups and a forced fumble over 10 games this year. His absence will open the door for Harrison Hand, Mark Fields and Chris Jones to compete for Boyd's starting gig.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Boyd was forced to leave the game in the first quarter. As long as Boyd is sidelined, Harrison Hand and Chris Jones could be in line to see an uptick in snaps.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Has 11 total tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd started at right cornerback and had 11 total tackles and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Detroit.

Boyd has emerged as a starter with injuries in the secondary and played on 74 of the defense's 75 snaps. He allowed seven receptions on nine balls targeted at him, however, according to Pro Football Focus. He could continue to start if Cameron Dantzler remains out due to a concussion.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: All clear Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (lower leg) was absent from Wednesday's injury report.

Boyd was forced to leave last week's win over Green Bay with cramps, so it appears he's fully recovered. Boyd could be in line for a larger workload than usual for Sunday's game against Detroit, as Cameron Dantzler (concussion), Holton Hill (foot) and Harrison Hand (hamstring) are all dealing with injury.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Injury was merely cramps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd left Sunday's win over the Packers because of cramps in his lower leg, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The report during the game signaled that Boyd exited with a no-contact knee injury, but this diagnosis is far more favorable. The second-year cornerback should return to practice in full capacity this week, and he'll handle a decent workload Sunday against the Lions if Cameron Dantzler (neck/concussion) and Mark Fields (chest) are ruled out.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Hurts knee during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd suffered an apparent right knee injury during Sunday's win over the Packers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Pelissero relayed that it was a noncontact injury, which often ends up being a severe issue. The team didn't reveal any further details about Boyd's injury, but he's one of three cornerbacks to leave the game hurt, Cameron Dantzler (neck/concussion) and Mark Fields (undisclosed) being the others. Jeff Gladney and Harrison Hand finished the game as the only remaining Vikings cornerbacks, and they could start next Sunday against the Lions.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Returning in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Packers.

Boyd will suit up for the first time since Week 3, and he could be pushed into a prominent role right away with fellow cornerbacks Mike Hughes (neck) and Holton Hill (foot) ruled out due to their respective injuries.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Boyd will miss his third straight contest due to a lingering hamstring injury. The Vikings have a bye Week 7, so Boyd's next opportunity to retake the field will come Nov. 1 against the Packers.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Inactive Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Boyd initially carried a questionable tag for Sunday's contest, and he'll now be forced to miss a second straight game. The second-year pro will target Oct. 18's game against the Falcons as a tentative return date.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Boyd has been nursing a hamstring issue that caused him to miss last week's victory over the Texans. He practiced in limited fashion all week and is looking like a true game-time decision.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Officially out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Boyd entered the weekend with a doubtful tag but has officially been ruled out. George Iloka, who was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, will add depth in the secondary for the time being.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Looking unlikely to face Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Boyd managed to play through his hamstring injury Week 3, but it appears as though he may since have aggravated the issue. With Mike Hughes (neck) out again, Boyd could handle significant snaps at cornerback if he's able to make a quick turnaround and suit up in Houston.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Good to go Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (hamstring) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Titans.

The 24-year-old cornerback had been dealing with a hamstring injury in recent days, but he's now clear to suit up for his 19th NFL appearance Sunday. Boyd has played just three total defensive snaps Weeks 1 and 2, but with Mike Hughes (neck) and Cameron Dantzler (ribs) both inactive for a Week 3 tilt against Tennessee, the young corner may see an uptick in defensive usage.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Gets tackle on special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd had a tackle on special teams in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. He did not play a snap on defense.

Boyd played 24 snaps, all on special teams, as he'll have a limited role as a deep reserve in the secondary on defense.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Two tackles in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd had two tackles and played on 15 of the defense's 74 snaps in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

The 2019 seventh-round draft pick begins the season as a deep reserve in the secondary and got playing time late amid a blowout win. He's unlikely to get much playing time, but Minnesota's depth in the secondary could be tested early with several players hurt.

Vikings' Kris Boyd: Heading to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Boyd in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 217 overall.

Boyd never displayed the type of promise that made him a top-10 cornerback prospect coming out of high school, but he did receive a first-team All-Big 12 nomination following a senior season in which he recorded 67 tackles and 16 pass breakups. A big, physical cornerback, Boyd is a willing tackler to the point where some pundits (wrongly) projected the Texas product could become a pseudo-safety in some exotic formations at the NFL level. There's a possibility the Vikings secondary depth chart could look dramatically different by the start of the preseason, but Boyd still figures to be a depth piece in his rookie campaign.
