The Vikings also added receivers Stephen Burton, Emanuel Arceneaux, fullbacks Matt Asiata and Ryan D'Imperio, offensive linemen Thomas Welch and Chris DeGeare, running back Caleb King and defensive lineman Cedric McKinley to the practice squad.

The Vikings begin the 2001 regular season at San Diego Sunday at 3:15pm, pregame on WJON at 2:00.
