  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Competing for roster spot

    Boyd (ribs) will be competing for a roster spot during training camp, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.

    Boyd has been a solid special teams player for the Vikings since the team drafted him in the seventh round of 2019 Draft. He ended the 2021 campaign with an ankle injury, but he appears to be healthy this offseason. Nonetheless, he may have an uphill battle for roster spot to start the 2022 season.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Out against Bears

    Boyd (ribs) is inactive Week 18 against Chicago.

    Boyd failed to see the practice field after being featured heavily against Green Bay last week, where he matched a season-best six tackles. As one of three cornerbacks not suiting up for the contest, Boyd's absence will certainly test the depth of the Minnesota secondary.

    Boyd (hamstring) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Won't face Browns

    Boyd (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Browns.

    Boyd logged two limited practices during the week, but that won't be enough for him to take the field Sunday. He has primarily played in a special teams role for the Vikings through three weeks, so his absence should not have a significant effect on the secondary.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Game-time call for Week 4

    Boyd (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, is considered a game-time decision, Josina Anderson of USA Today reports.

    Along with Boyd, fellow defenders Anthony Barr (knee) and Michael Pierce (elbow) are considered game-time calls due to their respective injuries. Boyd has made his biggest impact this season for Minnesota on special teams, where he's logged 54 of his 62 total snaps through three games.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Three tackles Sunday

    Boyd had three total tackles in Sunday's overtime loss at Cincinnati.

    Boyd played just eight snaps on defense in his reserve role in the secondary. Boyd emerged as a starter last season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in December. He could have a larger role if Bashaud Breeland continues to struggle in pass coverage.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Moving up depth chart

    Boyd started at cornerback opposite Bashaud Breeland with Patrick Peterson sitting out in Saturday's preseason loss to Indianapolis. He has been playing better than Cameron Dantzler, who started at cornberback a rookie, Mike Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    Boyd emerged as a starter last season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in December. It's unlikely he'll be a starter when the regular season begins, but he could get significant playing time off the bench.

  • Vikings' Kris Boyd: Goes to IR

    Boyd (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Boyd started four of the past five games for Minnesota. He'll be shut down for the rest of the regular season after posting 34 tackles, two pass breakups and a forced fumble over 10 games this year. His absence will open the door for Harrison Hand, Mark Fields and Chris Jones to compete for Boyd's starting gig.
