With final cuts and waiver claims out of the way, the Minnesota Vikings are now starting to put together their 10-man practice squad. We’ll be tracking the names that are coming across social media as having signed with the team, and several of them have come in already.
As expected, quarterback Jake Browning has been signed to the practice squad.
Defensive end Stacy Keely will be on the practice squad as well.

Offensive tackle Aviante Collins will be back with the team via the practice squad.

That puts three players on the 10-man practice squad so far, so seven spots remain open. We will continue updating this post with all of the latest additions as we get them.
Are there any players that you’re hoping to see the Vikings bring on to the practice squad, whether it’s their former players or guys from other teams that you may have taken an interest in during the preseason?
UPDATE: Wide receiver Davion Davis will, apparently, be heading to the practice squad.

UPDATE: Cameron Smith, one of just two Vikings’ 2019 draft picks to not make the 53-man roster, is coming back to the practice squad.
UPDATE: Per the team’s official Twitter account, the Vikings have also added Khari Blasingame, Devante Downs, Nate Meadors, and Dillon Mitchell to the practice squad, bringing their total to 9.

For some reason, they don’t have Davion Davis on the practice squad, even though Davis tweeted this out earlier today:
God is good all the time!— Davion Davis (@14DDavis) September 1, 2019
So, I think they’re at nine rather than eight. We’ll see if we can’t get clarification.
UPDATE: The team has reported that they have added former Buffalo Bills kicker Chase McLaughlin to the practice squad.
