We briefly mentioned that the Minnesota Vikings were promoting cornerback Tye Smith to the main roster in advance of tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, and now the team is bringing up two more players to fill spots as well.
The team has announced that they are promoting safety Myles Dorn and wide receiver Myron Mitchell to the 53-man roster for tonight’s contest. Mitchell, who signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama-Birmingham this offseason, spent camp with the Vikings and has been on the practice squad all season. If he is unable to go, Mitchell will serve as the #4 receiver for the Vikings behind Justin Jefferson, K.J. Osborn, and Ihmir Smith-Marsette.
