Minnesota has plenty of absences heading into its game against Detroit in Week 17. It should help, then, that the Vikings elevated some players for the defense.

On Saturday, the team announced that it was elevating cornerbacks Tae Hayes and Cordrea Tankersley to the active roster. Defensive end Eddie Yarbrough has been elevated to the active roster, via COVID-19 replacement.

Yarbrough has played in three games for the Vikings this season, while Tankersley has played in one. Hayes, however, has yet to play with Minnesota. He saw action in two NFL games this year with Miami.

Yarbrough can serve an important reserve role for the team, due to Jalyn Holmes and Ifeadi Odenigbo being ruled out for the game.

Tankersley and Hayes could still see some playing time as well, due to a lack of depth at defensive back and the low stakes of this Week 17 game.
