Minnesota Vikings Activate Offensive Tackle From Injured Reserve

After watching the San Francisco 49ers dominate in the first NFC Wild Card weekend matchup, the Minnesota Vikings will see them in their future, all they need to do now is take down the gritty, tough New York Giants, who have fought hard to make it to where they are.

Fortunately for the Vikings, they've got a double boost coming their way, as not only will their starting centre be returning, but today, they've activated tackle Blake Brandel from Injured Reserve, which will help this already talented offensive line.

Brandel was a steal, being drafted in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and while he's served primarily as depth over his time in the NFL thus far, he will certainly be a positive addition to a team finally looking to go deep into the post-season.
