11/23/17RBMack BrownCoach's DecisionOUTBrown was claimed off waivers by the Vikings on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Brown was waived by the Redskins on Saturday in order to make room for offensive lineman Arie Kouandijio. Brown will help add depth to the Vikings' running back unit, as the team only had two healthy tailbacks prior to the transaction.

11/23/17WRStacy ColeyCoach's DecisionOUTColey took over as the primary kickoff returner in Sunday's 23-10 win over Green Bay and had one return for 19 yards. He also played 16 snaps on offense, but didn't have a ball thrown his way.

Jerick McKinnon was removed from kickoff duties since he's emerged as the primary running back after Dalvin Cook's season-ending knee injury. Coley has also moved ahead of Rodney Adams for the No. 6 receiver role. However, he won't have a viable role on offense in that role.

11/23/17DLJaleel JohnsonCoach's DecisionOUTThe Vikings selected Johnson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 109th overall.

Johnson adds another big body inside for the Vikings front, checking in at 6-foot-3, 316 pounds. His subpar combine, including a mere 19 reps on the bench that ranked in just the fifth percentile among defensive linemen, made him a Day 3 pick. That said, he has impressive tape and was able to rush the passer from the interior with 7.5 sacks as a senior. Johnson figures to add depth at the right defensive tackle spot behind Sharrif Floyd, whose future is a bit cloudy due to nerve damage in his knee.

11/23/17QBKyle SloterCoach's DecisionOUTSloter isn't expected to dress for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Sloter had been acting as the Vikings' No. 2 quarterback behind starter Case Keenum the past three games while Sam Bradford (knee) was unavailable. Though Bradford was placed on injured reserve and isn't likely to return this season, the team activated fellow signal caller Teddy Bridgewater (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform list in a corresponding move, pushing Sloter down a rung on the depth chart. He could be inactive for each of the Vikings' final eight games if both Keenum and Bridgewater remain healthy.

08/01/17DLSharrif FloydKneeOUTFloyd (knee) has no set timeline for return, Matthew Coller of ESPN.com reports.

Floyd only suited up for one regular season game in 2016 before sitting out the rest with nerve damage in his knee. He's not expected to play Week 1, but the 2013 first-round pick is slated to be the top nose tackle when he returns.
