Myles Gaskin Back On Vikings Practice Squad

Monday, November 13, 12:48 PM

The Minnesota Vikings signed running back Myles Gaskin back to their practice squad on Monday after the Los Angeles Rams had signed him away, according to a source. Gaskin has been on an active NFL 53-man roster twice this year -- once with Minnesota and once with the Rams -- but he hasn't gotten on the field at all in 2023. His return to Minnesota coincides with Alexander Mattison suffering a concussion in the Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints. The Vikings could use the extra RB depth with Mattison's availability now in question for the Week 11 game on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos firmly in question. Ty Chandler could serve as the lead back in Week 11 if Mattison isn't cleared, and the Vikes also have Kene Nwangwu available to take on a bigger role if needed.

Ty Johnson News

Ty Johnson Stays Limited Thursday

Thursday, January 11, 7:23 PM

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (concussion) was limited again in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Johnson is recovering after suffering a concussion in the Week 18 win over the Miami Dolphins, but he has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol and still may not be able to play this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs. Even if the 26-year-old RB is cleared to play on wild-card weekend, he won't be much of a fantasy consideration for DFS lineups while splitting touches with Latavius Murray behind lead back James Cook. Johnson saw only 30 carries all season for 132 yards and one touchdown on the ground.
