Dorn has appeared in two Vikings games so far this season, totaling 22 snaps on special teams against the Packers and Lions. Dorn's signing follows Minnesota placing first-round draft pick Lewis Cine on Injured Reserve earlier this week.

Cine suffered a compound fracture while playing on special teams against the Saints in London last week. He underwent successful surgery in England.

Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell said Ellefson suffered a soft tissue injury while working on special teams during Thursday's practice.

Muse, a seventh-round pick, could be poised to make his regular-season debut.

Chisena appeared in 25 games, primarily on special teams, for Minnesota from 2020-21 after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. He's poised to make his 2022 regular-season debut.
