Myron Mitchell: Waived by Minnesota
The Vikings waived Mitchell on Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Mitchell missed a portion of training camp due to a quad injury, but when available, he made a strong impression and was vying for a roster spot. However, the undrafted product out of UAB now finds himself among the first waves of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. Per Tomasson, it's possible Mitchell returns to the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Myron Mitchell: Over injury
Mitchell (quad) had missed some practice time, but he was able to compete in the Vikings' 26-20 preseason loss to the Raiders on Sunday, Sam Thiel of the team's official site reports.
Mitchell had two catches on two targets for 37 yards in the contest. The 24-year-old joined the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in May of 2021 and spent all but one game on the Vikings' practice squad last season. A roster spot is far from guaranteed for Mitchell, but as long as he can stay healthy and compete, he'll give himself a chance to make the team.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Myron Mitchell: Misses practice
Mitchell (quad) didn't practice Saturday, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The second-year wideout is fighting for a spot on the roster with a bevy of fellow wideouts, but he only has one NFL snap to his credit as he bounced between the practice squad and the main roster for much of 2021. The top three wideouts in the pecking order appear to be locked in at this point between Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn, meaning Mitchell will likely just be a depth piece if he does manage to come back from a tight quad and make the team.... See More ... See Less

Vikings' Myron Mitchell: Elevated from practice squad
Mitchell was elevated from the Vikings' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Bears.
Since Adam Thielen (ankle) is a game-time decision while Dede Westbrook (illness) and Dan Chisena (undisclosed) are on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Monday's contest, Mitchell will join the active roster to provide additional depth at wide receiver. The undrafted rookie hasn't yet made his regular-season debut in the NFL.... See More ... See Less
