Vikings Elevate Two For Monday Night Football

The Minnesota Vikings announced they have elevated WR Trishton Jackson and OLB Luiji Vilain to the active roster for Monday night’s game against the 49ers. 

Trishton Jackson

Players can be elevated to the roster three times per season and return to the practice squad without having to clear waivers. 

Jackson, 25, wound up signing a rookie contract with the Rams after going undrafted out of Syracuse following the 2020 draft.

He was ultimately waived coming out of the preseason and landed on the Vikings’ practice squad. He’s spent time in between the practice squad and active roster ever since. 

Throughout his four-year career between Michigan State and Syracuse, Jackson appeared in a total of 23 games and hauled in 86 passes for 1,282 yards and 13 touchdowns.
