Vikings Activate WR Josh Doctson From Injured Reserve


The Minnesota Vikings announced Friday that they’ve officially activated WR Josh Doctson from the injured reserve list. 

Doctson could make his 2019 season debut in Week 11 now that Adam Thielen has been ruled out.

Doctson, 26, was taken in the first round out of TCU in 2016 by the Redskins. He signed a four-year, $10.049 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $1,820,406 for the 2019 season when the Redskins released back in September. 

The Vikings later signed Doctson to a contract before placing him on injured reserve with a leg injury soon after. Minnesota designated him to return from injured reserve a few weeks ago. 

In 2018, Doctson appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and caught 44 passes for 532 yards receiving (12.1 YPC) and two touchdowns.
