Vikings Announce Roster Moves

Chris Jones (6-0, 200) joins the Vikings after being waived by Detroit on October 24. He began the 2020 season on the Arizona Cardinals practice squad and was signed to Detroit’s active roster on September 16. Jones originally entered the NFL with the Lions in 2018 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Nebraska, spending training camp with the team. He split time on Arizona’s practice squad and active roster over the course of the 2018-20 regular seasons. Jones has appeared in 14 games (three starts) and totaled 20 total tackles (15 solo) and six passes defensed in his career.

Both Troy Dye and Pat Elflein now return to practice for a period not to exceed 21 calendar days and
may return to the 53-player Active/Inactive Roster at any time during this period. Should they not return to the Active/Inactive Roster within this period, they will stay on Reserve/Injured for the remainder of the
2020 season.
