  • Vikings' Jonathan Bullard: Restored to active roster

    The Vikings activated Bullard (biceps) from injured reserve Saturday.

    Bullard has missed the past four games while on IR with a biceps injury. The 29-year-old was then designated to return to practice Thursday, and he's now set to play again at the earliest possible opportunity heading into Sunday's regular-season finale versus Chicago. With James Lynch still sitting out Week 18 due to a shoulder injury, Bullard should be first in line for additional reps behind starting defensive ends Dalvin Tomlinson and Harrison Phillips.

    Bullard has been on injured reserve since Dec. 10 while nursing a biceps injury, but the defensive end was back at practice Wednesday. The 29-year-old has compiled 23 tackles over 11 games this season, and, when healthy, he could step right back into a significant role on the defensive line with James Lynch (shoulder) banged up and uncertain for the postseason.

  • Vikings' Jonathan Bullard: Optimism around return this year

    Bullard suffered a biceps injury in Sunday's win over the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bullard is not expected to need surgery on the biceps, making it possible that he can return to the field in the near future. That being said, he will undergo additional tests, and regardless of result, seems unlikely to be available for Week 14 versus the Lions. In his absence, James Lynch and Dalvin Tomlinson will likely see upticks in usage.
