Matt Asiata: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Asiata was limited in practice Wednesday, after receiving clearance from the league's concussion protocol, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Vikings will understandably ease Asiata into drills in order to avoid a setback, and a cap could hold throughout the week. If he gets the all clear for Sunday's game versus the Panthers, he would likely supplant Joe Banyard as the goal-line back, which could be fruitful against a defense that has given up 14 touchdowns in 11 outings this season.
Asiata (concussion) practiced Wednesday, Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Asiata was still embedded in the league's concussion protocol as recently as Tuesday, meaning an appearance in drills just one day later shouldn't be cause for celebration. Owners will have a better indication of his Week 13 availability once the Vikings release Wednesday's injury report.
Asiata is still going through the league's concussion protocol, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Asiata (concussion) did not practice Friday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Asiata still has not been cleared by the league's concussion protocol and has not practiced all week, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Packers. Jerick McKinnon (back) might be afforded more short-yardage opportunities if Asiata sits out, though perhaps the Vikings would simply transfer those duties to new acquisition Bet Tate.
