Vikings' Johnny Stanton: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (lower leg) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

It's still unclear how severe Stanton's injury is, but it's bad enough for the Vikings to have cut him. If he's able to reach an injury settlement and get healthy, the 23-year-old will be able to sign with another team. For now, C.J. Ham is the only fullback with the Vikings.

Vikings' Josiah Price: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (knee) cleared waivers Tuesday and was placed on injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Price has a season-ending injury so he'll remain on IR unless an injury settlement is reached. The 25-year-old's absence may affect the Vikings depth for the final two preseason games, but he wasn't expected to make the 53-man roster.

Vikings' Cedrick Lang: Clears waivers, lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lang (lower leg) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Lang will require season-ending surgery, so even if an injury settlement is reached, his focus will shift to the 2019 campaign. The Vikings will look for additional linemen to back up Tom Compton.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook: May play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John DeFilippo said Cook may play in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "Coach and I are going to talk about Dalvin in the next day or two.'' DeFilippo said Tuesday. "We're looking forward to possibly seeing him out there.''

Cook was held out for the first two week of the preseason, though he did go through warmups with his teammates prior to Saturday's loss to the Jaguars. He was cleared for contact work at the start of training camp and has now made it through four weeks of practice without any setbacks. The 23-year-old seems to be on track for Week 1 against San Francisco, but the Vikings' cautious handling of the situation is a hint that Latavius Murray could also have a big role in the backfield during the early portion of the season. Though not overly important, a brief appearance in Friday's preseason game would be comforting to anyone with an investment in Cook.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Two receptions Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell had two receptions for eight yards on two targets in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville.

Treadwell has three receptions for 11 yards in two preseason games. Despite the lackluster stats, he still may be the leading candidate for the third receiver role with Kendall Wright showing even less in the preseason and training camp. However win the third receiver role may not me much of a factor as Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs received almost all the targets at wide receiver last season.
