The team confirmed the move later Thursday.
The former first-rounder was added to Minnesota’s roster just before the season, and was inactive for Week 1.
Doctson will be able to return later in the year, according to Rapoport.
Meanwhile, rookie corner back Nate Meadors was signed to the active roster and rookie wide receiver Alexander Hollins was signed to the practice squad.
