The Vikings added running back Bishop Sankey to the practice squad on Friday.
Sankey, 24, was a second-round pick by the Tennessee Titans during the 2014 draft and was most recently with the Kansas City Chiefs this month. He was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday.
He takes the practice squad spot previously held by defensive end Stephen Weatherly, who was promoted to the active roster this week after the team waived running back Ronnie Hillman.
The University of Washington product averaged 3.8 yards per carry on 199 attempts during two seasons with the Titans.
