Head coach Mike Zimmer announced Wednesday that cornerback Josh Robinson will be activated from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Robinson missed the first half of the 2015 season due to a pectoral injury suffered in June. He returned to practice about three weeks ago; according to Chris Tomasson, the Vikings had until Wednesday to make a decision on Robinson. Had the team not activated the cornerback, NFL rules dictate he would have remained on PUP for the remainder of the season.

Drafted in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Robinson is in his fourth year with the Vikings. Robinson started five games for Minnesota during the 2014 season. Overall on the year, he recorded 41 tackles (39 solo) and three interceptions.

After releasing eleven players yesterday, including veterans Joe Banyard and Brandon Bostick, the Minnesota Vikings made two more moves on Monday to bring their active roster closer to the 75-man limit.

As announced on the team’s official website, the Vikings placed Josh Robinson on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, and the fourth-year cornerback will sit out the first six games of the season. Robinson missed all of training camp and the preseason after tearing his pectoral muscle during minicamp — an injury that will keep keep him from practicing until October 19.

Bykowski, a third-year tackle out of Iowa State, joined the Vikings last December after spending two years on the San Francisco 49ers’ practice squad. He was competing for the backup spot behind left tackle Matt Kalil before tearing his his pectoral muscle in the Vikings’ August 15 preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

When Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards was asked about first-round pick Trae Waynes last week, Edwards mentioned the rookie cornerback from Michigan State continues to improve as the preseason has progressed.

Then he was asked if he’s going to be ready to start Week 1.

Edwards responded, “Well, that’s what we’re aiming for, that’s what we’re all working for, but we’ll just take it from week-to-week. We’ve still got two more games to go and just keep evaluating it through the process.”
