EAGAN, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings (7-6) on Friday elevated receiver Trishton Jackson and running back Myles Gaskin for their Week 15 game at the Cincinnati Bengals (7-6).
Kickoff is scheduled for noon (CT) Saturday on NFL Network (it also will air on WCCO in the Twin Cities).
Jackson has spent time this season on the 53-man roster and practice squad.
He has played 80 offensive snaps and nine snaps on special teams this season, recording two catches, as well as catching an important 2-point conversion at Atlanta.
Gaskin has spent time with the Vikings and Rams this season, appearing on special teams in one game for each team. Minnesota signed him just before the season after he was released by Miami.
In October, the Rams signed Gaskin off Minnesota's practice squad. The Vikings re-signed Gaskin to their practice squad in November.
The Vikings ruled out running back Alexander Mattison (ankle) on Thursday. Ty Chandler is expected to start at running back. The Vikings also have Kene Nwangwu at the position and could rely on some carries by fullback C.J. Ham, who rushed for the first time in 2023 last week at Las Vegas for a gain of 7. Ham also has helped with pass protection on third downs.
