Reports: Vikings claim RB Abdullah off waivers


The Minnesota Vikings claimed running back Ameer Abdullah on Wednesday, a day after he was waived by the Detroit Lions, according to multiple reports.

Abdullah, 25, was a second-round pick by Detroit in 2015 but was active in only three games this season and carried the ball just once. The Lions filled his roster spot with wide receiver Bruce Ellington, a fourth-round pick by San Francisco in 2014, who spent the past two seasons with the Houston Texans after two seasons with the 49ers.

Abdullah's best season came in his rookie year, when he gained 780 total yards (597 rushing, 183 receiving) and scored three touchdowns.

He will provide depth at the position for the Vikings. Starter Dalvin Cook missed five games this season with a hamstring injury.

Latavius Murray leads Minnesota with 417 rushing yards. Cook has 187.
