The Minnesota Vikings may be dead last in the NFC North but they did receive a little bit of good news regarding safety Harrison Smith.
Smith was placed on the injured reserve-recall list after a turf toe injury that kept him out for about eight weeks. The Vikings are currently 30th in the league against the pass and will be hoping to finish out the season strong.
Left tackle Mike Remmers was waived by the Minnesota Vikings to open up a spot for Smith on the roster.
He’ll be returning at a perfect time as the Vikings have placed corner-back Josh Robinson on the injured reserve after being sidelined since Week 11. Robinson struggled all year after trying to replace veteran corner Antoine Winfield.
The Minnesota Vikings take on the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. A team that is looking a lot better with Nick Foles under center. Which could mean the departure of Michael Vick in the near future.
