Osborn (coach's decision) is inactive for Minnesota's Week 12 matchup against the Panthers.
Analysis: Osborn leads the Vikings in both punt-return attempts (four) and kick-return attempts (13) thus far in 2020, but Tajae Sharpe has been activated and inserted above him at the No. 5 wide receiver spot. With Osborn out of the mix for Week 12, Ameer Abdullah and Chad Beebe are likely to garner opportunities in the return game.
Osborn (hamstring) wasn't listed on Minnesota's injury report Wednesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The 23-year-old missed the previous two games heading into the Week 7 bye, but he's practicing with no limitations after receiving the extra recovery time. Osborn should reclaim returning duties for the Vikings now that he's healthy.
Osborn (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Osborn will miss his second game in a row due to a lingering hamstring injury. As long as he's sidelined, Chad Beebe will handle punt returns while Ameer Abdullah stands to return kickoffs.
Osborn (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.
Analysis: Osborn looks to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Falcons. If he's forced to miss a second straight contest due to his hamstring injury, Chad Beebe will once again return punts while Ameer Abdullah takes back kickoffs.
Osborn (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday night's contest in Seattle, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Osborn will need to miss at least one week as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. In his stead, Chad Beebe and Ameer Abdullah will likely fill in for him on punt and kick returns, respectively.
Osborn is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: With Osborn out, Chad Beebe will likely return punts with Ameer Abdullah likely to return kickoffs.
Osborn returned two kickoffs for an average of 32 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
Analysis: Osborn didn't play a snap on offense as he'll be limited to special teams unless a receiver or two get hurt. It looks like he could make an impact as a returner if his first two returns are any indication.
Osborn made Minnesota's 53-man roster, The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Osborn was kept for his return skills and he'll likely begin the season as the team's punt returner and potentially the team's kickoff returner. Either way, he'll initially be a deep reserve on offense.
