Both players will return to the practice squad after the game without having to pass through waivers.
Yarbrough, 27, signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming in 2016 but was released during final roster cuts at the end of the preseason. He later signed on with the Bills in April of 2017.
Buffalo re-signed him as an exclusive-rights free agent for two straight seasons but wound up being among the Bills’ roster cuts coming out of last year’s preseason.
He signed with the Bills’ practice squad but was eventually signed by the Vikings at the end of 2019. Minnesota later decided to waive him back in October and re-signed to Minnesota’s taxi squad.
In 2020, Yarbrough has appeared in two game for the Vikings and recorded five total tackles.
