After their loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, the Minnesota Vikings made two roster moves.
- DE Dean Lowry was placed on injured reserve
- G Chris Reed was activated from the non-football injury list
Lowry suffered a pectoral injury on Sunday night that will require surgery. That surgery will make him miss the rest of the season.
The Vikings already don’t have a great defensive line and losing a player will hurt. They do have T.J. Smith and Sheldon Day on the practice squad to help fortify the unit.
Reed needed to be activated before Wednesday as his practice window was closing. He will be a nice addition to the depth on the roster, especially having another player who can play center in a pinch.
