On Tuesday the Vikings announced they have placed four players on IR. The players include long snapper Cullen Loeffler (back), receiver Michael Jenkins (knee), safety Husain Abdullah (concussion) and safety Tyrell Johnson (hamstring). Abdullah has been out a couple weeks with a concussion and the other 3 players were all injured during Sunday’s game against Atlanta. None of the players are able to return this season after being placed on IR.

The Vikings have signed long snapper Matt Katula and safeties Jarrad Page and Andrew Sandejo to fill the holes left on the roster. They have also moved wide receiver Stephen Burton to the active roster from the practice squad. Tight end Mickey Shuler was signed to the practice squad to fill that vacancy.
