Cleared for Week 9

Chisena (hip) isn't on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Chisena should be active, but his role will likely remain limited, as the rookie is yet to play a snap on offense this season.

Held to limited participation

Chisena (hip) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session.

Analysis: The 23-year-old receiver was ruled out of Sunday's NFC North matchup against Green Bay, marking his first game absence of 2020. Chisena has yet to field a single offensive snap during his rookie campaign out of Penn State, though he has played an important special-teams role with an average of 21 snaps per game in that department. Given that he's been able to log consecutive limited sessions in practice Wednesday and Thursday, there's a reasonable chance of him being active for another divisional matchup Week 9 against Detroit.

Unavailable against Packers

Chisena (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Packers, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Chisena popped up on the injury report Friday as a non-participant in practice, so it's not surprising that he's ruled out ahead of the Week 8 tilt. All of Chisena's contributions this season have been on special teams, so this won't affect the offensive dynamic.

Questionable for Week 8

Chisena (undisclosed) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Analysis: Even if he suits up, Chisena's impact is likely to be limited to special teams situations. His contributions on the stat sheet through six games have been limited to one fumble recovery.

Positional change

The Vikings are switching Chisena from receiver to safety, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Chisena's positional shift comes with the context that he's been impressing on special teams throughout training camp. The Penn State product could have an outside chance at a spot on the final roster, though it's more likely that he could latch on to Minnesota's practice squad as a way to continue developing with the team.
