The Minnesota Vikings made a few roster moves in preparation of Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

Starting tight end Kyle Rudolph will likely miss the Vikings game Sunday due to an ankle injury. As a result, Kyle Carter was called up from the practice squad and will join the team’s active roster Friday.

Carter is 24 years-old. The 6-foot 3, 245-pound tight end is in his second NFL season. He played college football at Penn State. Carter originally signed with Minnesota as an undrafted free agent in 2016 before spending the rest of the season on the Vikings practice squad. He looked good in training camp this summer and was among the team’s final cuts before he was assigned to the practice squad.

To make room on the roster for Carter, the Vikings placed tight end Blake Bell (shoulder) on injured reserve. Bell played in 13 games this season before being shelved. He caught 3 passes for 19 yards and hauled in a 2-point conversion last week against the Panthers.

Fellow tight end David Morgan (concussion) practiced in full Thursday after missing the Vikings game against the Carolina Panthers last Sunday.

The team is expected to deploy Morgan and Carter as the tight ends Sunday against Cincinnati.

Jack Tocho was not gone very long. Three days after being waived by the team when offensive tackle Storm Norton was signed, the Vikings signed the safety back to the practice squad Friday.

The Minnesota Vikings season up to this point has just been the calm before the Storm.

The Vikings signed offensive tackle Storm Norton to the practice squad Tuesday. The team waived safety Jack Tocho.

Norton is 6-foot 8 and 306 pounds. He played college football at Toledo in Ohio. The 23 year-old was signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He spent training camp with Detroit and has spent time on the Lions and Arizona Cardinals practice squads throughout the season.

The Minnesota Vikings made surprise a roster move today.

The team signed guard Willie Beavers off the New England Patriot’s practice squad. Beavers, originally a fourth-round draft pick for the Vikings in 2016, returned to the team after being cut during roster trim-downs.

To make room for Beavers on the ten-man practice squad, the Vikings released running back Bronson Hill.

The Minnesota Vikings stayed quiet through Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline. On Wednesday, they made some moves. The team signed two players to the practice squad. Both players that signed cleared waivers and are now back with the team. Due to the transactions the Vikings had to part ways with another 2017 draft pick.

The Vikings made multiple roster transactions on the eve of the NFL trade deadline.

The Minnesota Vikings bolstered their running back depth Monday. The team claimed running back Mack Brown off waivers from the Washington Redskins. Brown entered the league as an undrafted free agent by the Houston Texans in 2015. He’s in his second NFL season. In 12 games with the Redskins, Brown has totaled 16 carries for 111 yards and 1 touchdown in his career.
