EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Monday announced they are elevating receiver Trishton Jackson and outside linebacker Luiji Vilain for tonight's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Jackson has spent time on the practice squad and the 53-man roster but returned to the practice squad this past week.
He will be available to join K.J. Osborn, Jordan Addison, Brandon Powell and N'Keal Harry. Jackson played on a limited basis against the Chargers and Bears in his first two NFL games.
Receiver Jalen Nailor is currently in his 21-day evaluation window as he works to return from Injured Reserve, and Justin Jefferson is in his second of at least four weeks on IR.
Vilain appeared in three games, totaling four tackles on 34 defensive snaps, as an undrafted rookie in 2022.
He will join Danielle Hunter, D.J. Wonnum, Pat Jones II and Andre Carter II in Minnesota's first game after Marcus Davenport was placed on IR.
