Jerome Simpson: Eligible to Return This Week Staff

Update: Simpson will return to practice this week and be eligible to play Week 4 against Detroit after serving a three-game suspension. However, the Vikings don't need to make a roster move until 3 pm CT on Thursday, the ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports.

Recommendation: The Vikings will need to drop a player from the 53-man roster as a result. Simpson should start this week as the No. 2 receiver opposite Percy Harvin and could add the deep threat the Minnesota passing game has been lacking.
