Minnesota’s full practice squad now includes:
- RB Jake Bargas
- T Blake Brandel
- QB Jake Browning
- T Aviante Collins
- TE Brandon Dillon
- DB Mark Fields
- G Kyle Hinton
- WR Alexander Hollins
- C Brett Jones
- LB Blake Lynch
- DB Josh Metellus
- QB Nate Stanley
- LB Hardy Nickerson

- S George Iloka
Iloka, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed when the Bengals elected to cut him loose during the preseason.
The Vikings later signed Iloka to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $790,000. After becoming a free agent in 2019, Iloka signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Cowboys last year. However, Dallas released him coming out of the preseason.
Iloka wound up sitting out the 2019 season.
In 2018, Iloka appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 16 tackles, no interceptions, and a forced fumble.
