Vikings activate Munnerlyn from the PUP list

Posted by: Matt Vensel under Vikings Updated: July 30, 2014 - 10:55 AM

The Vikings have activated Captain Munnerlyn from the physically-unable-to-perform list.

The cornerback, whom the Vikings signed away from the Panthers in free agency, started training camp on the PUP list after straining his right hamstring before the start of camp. Both he and head coach Mike Zimmer had been insisting that it was a minor injury, and Zimmer said Monday that he expected Munnerlyn to be back on the field soon. And now here we are.

That being said, hammies can be fickle, especially for corners, so they might choose to ease him into action the next couple of days. Either way, we’ll keep an eye on him.

Practice is at 3 p.m. today. We’ll see if wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who is recovering from a minor foot injury, joins Munnerlyn on the practice field. He did a little bit on Monday night.

Safety Andrew Sendejo (back and ankle) and tight end Chase Ford (foot) remain on the PUP.
