EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have placed wide receiver/punt returner Dede Westbrook on the COVID-19 reserve list. The Vikings took another hit to their skill position depth on offense amid a spike in positive tests across the NFL. Running back Alexander Mattison and wide receiver/special teams ace Dan Chisena went on the COVID-19 reserve list the previous day. The Vikings claimed running back Wayne Gallman off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons for a reinforcement. Standout wide receiver Adam Thielen missed Minnesota’s most recent game with a sprained ankle. It’s unclear when he’ll be back on the field.


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes became the latest NHL club to be hit with a coronavirus outbreak. Four more players were placed in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. That prompted the postponement of their game against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. The Hurricanes are the fourth team this season to have games postponed due to an outbreak. The Calgary Flames had three games postponed this week. Eleven teams have been affected by at least one postponement.
