The Vikings will workout wide receiver Brandon Jones on Friday. Jones was waived by the 49ers on Wednesday.
The Vikings are getting thin at the receiver spot. Percy Harvin was hospitalized after collapsing on the field Thursday after suffering another migraines episode. Sidney Rice remains on the physically unable to perform list because of a hip injury and Jaymar Johnson was waived after suffering a broken left thumb in the preseason opener.
Jones has battled injuries throughout his five-year career, which includes four seasons with the Tennessee Titans.
Jones signed a five-year, $16 million deal with the 49ers last offseason, but the team cut ties with him after only one season. Jones fractured a shoulder last season and finished with only one catch for 18 yards.
According to this story, Jones missed the 49ers mandatory minicamp because of an ankle injury and was sidelined 10 days of training camp because of a strained hamstring.
