Nose tackle Michael Pierce is currently on Injured Reserve, leaving Armon Watts, James Lynch and Sheldon Richardson as the defensive tackles on Minnesota's 53-man roster. Richardson was used mostly at defensive end last week against the Packers.
Minnesota also announced that guard Dakota Dozier has been activated from the Practice Squad Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Vikings terminated the practice squad contracts of fullback Garrett Groshek and center Spencer Pulley. Groshek and Pulley had joined Minnesota's practice squad in recent weeks.
