As the Vikings prepare for a divisional matchup with the Lions, the team has made several roster decisions that should impact the depth of the roster in Week 5.

Minnesota waived Dan Chisena, a wide receiver whose main role on the Vikings was special teams. The team wasn’t done there.

The Vikings also activated G Dakota Dozier and CB Parry Nickerson as COVID-19 replacements. Dozier and Nickerson are both out of conventional practice squad elevations, meaning Minnesota would have to sign them to the active roster in the event that they are elevated without being COVID-19 replacements.

Minnesota elevated CB Tye Smith to the roster for the game vs. Detroit as well. The Vikings clearly wanted to add cornerback depth this week, with Harrison Hand and Cameron Dantzler both on the COVID-19/reserve list still.

Dozier, Nickerson and Smith may get playing time on special teams. Against the Browns, both Dozier and Nickerson played on special teams after getting elevated from the practice squad.
