Jeff Badet: Gets tryout call Monday

Badet (groin) worked out for the Packers on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Badet failed to make the Vikings' roster out of camp and dealt with a groin injury in the process. Now that the 25-year-old is officially healthy, he could be a candidate for a practice squad spot considering he has no NFL regular-season experience to date.

Jeff Badet: Fails to make roster

Badet (groin) was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Badet was in the running for the team's third receiver, but ended up getting cut, with the Vikings keeping just four receivers on the roster. The 25-year-old could be picked up by another team, but has no NFL regular season experience.

Jeff Badet: Out of action Saturday

Badet (groin) did not play in Saturday's preseason win over Arizona.

Jeff Badet: Limited in practice Wednesday

Badet (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet had missed four consecutive practices due to a groin issue, so today's limited participation is a step in the right direction. The second-year pro is competing for a depth role in Minnesota, and would be well served to return to full health as quickly as possible.

Jeff Badet: Still nursing groin injury

Badet (groin) did not participate in Saturday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet appeared to be past the groin injury that kept him sidelined throughout OTAs as he returned to practice earlier this week, but he missed Saturday's training camp session. If anything, the absence can likely be chalked up to a minor setback as he projects to return again in a timely manner.

Jeff Badet: Returns to practice

Badet (groin) has returned to practice for the first day of training camp, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet missed much of the spring OTAs due to a groin issue, but it looks like he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp. Badet (six feet, 185 pounds) has spent time with both the Panthers and Vikings since going undrafted out of Oklahoma last spring. The wideout ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash time at his 2018 pro day, but he's viewed as mainly a gadget player than a true downfield threat, given his smallish frame.

Jeff Badet: Misses practice Thursday

Badet (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It was reported May 4 that Badet was dealing with a groin injury, and it seemingly is serious enough to have held him out of the team's minicamp a month later. It's unclear now whether the Oklahoma product will be ready for training camp in late July, but more information should be revealed as the offseason rolls on.

Jeff Badet: Nursing groin injury

Badet's status for the Vikings' weekend minicamp practices is uncertain due to a tweaked groin, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. However, he was unable to make the team's final 53-man roster after suffering a head injury in training camp. From there he spent some time on the Panthers' practice squad before returning to Minnesota in January. It does not sound like the Oklahoma product is dealing with anything serious, and should return to practice activities once his health allows it.

Jeff Badet: Staying with Minnesota

Badet has signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings, Chris Tomasson reports.

Analysis: Badet (6-foot-0, 185 pounds) has spent time with both the Panthers and Vikings since going undrafted out of Oklahoma last spring. Owner of a blazing 4.27-second time in the 40-yard dash, Badet is more of a gadget player than true receiver, but that may not be a huge problem on a Minnesota team that already possesses one of the league's most potent combinations of wideouts in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

Jeff Badet: Signs with Panthers' practice squad

Badet signed a contract to join the Panthers' practice squad, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Badet spent the summer with the Vikings but was let go as part of the team's final roster cuts over the weekend. However, the Oklahoma product evidently caught the eye of the Panthers' scouting department and will now be stashed in Carolina for the time being.

Jeff Badet: Suffers potential head injury

Badet was helped off the field by trainers during Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Badet appeared to have taken a blow to the head before being helped off the field, so he may need to clear the league's concussion protocol before potentially returning to practice during the upcoming week. The reserve wide receiver is likely a longshot to make the Vikings' 53-man roster, so he'll look to return in time for the team's third preseason tilt against the Seahawks on Friday.
