Vikings Place Jordan Hicks on Injured Reserve; Return Myles Gaskin to Practice Squad


EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Tuesday announced they have placed linebacker Jordan Hicks on Injured Reserve.

Hicks suffered a leg contusion during Sunday's win over the Saints. He tried to return to action but was removed from the game.

After the game, swelling led to the Vikings and Hicks seeking expanded medical care. He was transported to a hospital and underwent a procedure to address compartment syndrome.

Minnesota's leading tackler and a tremendous locker room leader, Hicks posted Tuesday about his recovery:

In addition to the placement of Hicks on IR, Minnesota announced Tuesday afternoon that it has re-signed running back Myles Gaskin to the practice squad.

In order to make room for Gaskin, Minnesota released defensive lineman Michael Dogbe from the practice squad. Dogbe had joined the group on Oct. 31.

Gaskin joined the Vikings at the end of August after his release by the Dolphins during roster reductions.

He spent time on Minnesota's 53-man roster and practice squad. Gaskin played two special teams snaps for the Vikings in Week 2 at Philadelphia.

In Week 7, the Rams signed Gaskin from the Vikings practice squad. Gaskin played six special teams snaps for Los Angeles against Dallas in Week 8.

Gaskin has appeared in 40 games with 17 starts. He's totaled 1,355 yards and seven touchdowns on 361 rushes, as well as 701 yards and six scores on 101 receptions (all with Miami from 2019-22).

The return of Gaskin followed another reunion, the Tuesday signing of Anthony Barr to Minnesota's practice squad.
