The Minnesota Vikings acquired defensive tackle P.J. Hall (6-0, 305) from the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for an undisclosed 2021 draft pick. Hall joins the Minnesota Vikings for his third NFL season after spending the previous two seasons with the Raiders after being drafted 57th overall in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the club. Hall appeared in 14 games during his rookie season with the Raiders, making six starts while recording 22 tackles (16 solo) and two passes defensed. In 2019, Hall notched 26 tackles (18 solo) and 1.5 sacks through 16 games with 12 starts. A native of Seguin, Texas, Hall earned All-America honors in all four seasons at Sam Houston State, finishing his collegiate career with 284 tackles (160 solo), an FCS-record 86.5 tackles for loss, a school-record 42.0 sacks, nine forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one interception and a school-record 14 blocked kicks through 56 games (54 starts).

This new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, their club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

The Vikings active roster currently stands at 80 players.
