Rookie Stephen Burton contributed two catches for 38 yards against the Broncos last week. 

He was unable to make any contributions to the offensive efforts this Sunday, and won’t be able to help out for the rest of this season after injuring his MCL.  The injury will not require surgery and Burton figures to be at Vikings training camp next year.

Taking his place on the active roster will be former CFL receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux who joined the Vikings last offseason and has been on the team’s practice squad.

The next question, of course, is who the team will find to take Arceneaux’s place on the practice squad.  My recommendation would be to find a young, speedy running back to join Caleb King in pressuring Lorenzo Booker for his job.  Booker fumbled twice on Sunday.
