The Minnesota Vikings re-signed running back Myles Gaskin to their practice squad on Wednesday. Gaskin, who began the year with the Miami Dolphins before being released, will continue to provide running back depth in Minnesota behind Alexander Mattison, Cam Akers and Ty Chandler. The 26-year-old was active in Week 2 and played two snaps on special teams, but he didn't get on the field at all on offense. The former seventh-round selection of the Dolphins in 2019 out of Washington has 361 career carries for 1,355 yards and seven touchdowns in 39 games (17 starts), all in a four-year span in Miami.

The Minnesota Vikings released running back Myles Gaskin on Tuesday. Gaskin appeared in one game for the Vikings in 2023 but did not log any stats. He became expendable in Minnesota after the team acquired running back Cam Akers from the Los Angeles Rams last week. Gaskin will now hit the free-agent market in hopes of latching on with another team.

The Minnesota Vikings signed running back Myles Gaskin to their active 53-man roster on Tuesday from their practice squad. Gaskin was let go by the Miami Dolphins this summer but latched on quickly with Minnesota and was on the active roster in the Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The 26-year-old didn't see the field at all to start the season, but he should once again be active for a Week 2 showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles this Thursday night. Gaskin is going to struggle to find work behind Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler unless one of them misses time with an injury in 2023.

As expected, running back Myles Gaskin will rejoin the Minnesota Vikings after being released by the team on Friday. It was expected all along that the Vikings would bring back Gaskin as they released him originally for salary reasons. The 26-year-old will return to the team and be elevated to the active roster ahead of the Week 1 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It appears Gaskin is going to be the third back on the roster behind Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler. That being said, there probably isn't going to be a huge role for Gaskin right away. Possibly, Gaskin gets mixed in on passing downs, but probably won't have fantasy value with Mattison healthy.

Minnesota Vikings running back Myles Gaskin has been released by the organization on Friday. However, the 26-year-old is expected to rejoin the team as part of the squad practice. After that, Gaskin is expected to be elevated from the practice squad to the active roster for the Week 1 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It appears the team is doing this in order to avoid guaranteeing Gaskin's salary. Gaskin is set to be the third back behind Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler to begin the season. He's unlikely to have much fantasy value unless Mattison ends up missing time.

Running back Myles Gaskin has signed with the Minnesota Vikings' active roster, one day after being released by the Miami Dolphins. The former seventh-round pick was seldom used by Miami in 2022 but did rush for a combined 1,196 yards across the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Gaskin joins a backfield consisting of starter Alexander Mattison and backups Ty Chandler and Kene Nwangwu. The latter has a special teams role carved out but it remains to be seen if Chandler or Gaskin would get the bulk of the carries, should Mattison have to miss any time.

The Miami Dolphins are releasing running back Myles Gaskin on Tuesday. Gaskin will hit the open market after four seasons with Miami in which he had 361 carries for 1,355 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and seven touchdowns, adding 101 receptions for 701 air yards and six additional TDs on 128 targets through 38 games (17 starts). The seventh-round selection in 2019 out of Washington had 13 carries for 80 yards in the preseason and looked good in training camp, but he'll now be looking for another opportunity. The 26-year-old played in only four games in 2022 and had 10 carries for 26 yards. The Dolphins have a crowded RB room with Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., rookie De'Von Achane and Salvon Ahmed, and they could trade for Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor on Tuesday as well.

Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin rushed six times for 23 yards during Saturday's preseason finale versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also hauled in all five of his targets for an additional 30 yards through the air. Gaskin finishes the preseason with 13 rushes, 80 rushing yards, eight catches, and 50 receiving yards. All in all, it was a solid couple of weeks for the 26-year-old as he looks to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Right now, he's mainly competing with Salvon Ahmed and rookie Chris Brooks, though lingering injuries to Jeff Wilson Jr. (undisclosed) and De'Von Achane (shoulder) complicate the situation.
