The former first rounder – and former teammate of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins at Washington – was added to the team’s roster just before the season. Doctson was inactive for Week 1 and then later placed on injured reserve with a leg injury.
Doctson is expected to compete for a depth role behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
