Continuing our look at NFC North practice squads...

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

  • DE Martail Burnett

  • OL Brian Daniels

  • DT Leger Douzable

  • WR Jaymar Johnson

  • C Tim Mattran

  • WR Darius Reynaud

  • CB Marcus Walker

  • RB Albert Young

Of note: Reynaud got a lot of people excited as a possible return man during training camp and will get time to refine his skills. Johnson was the only member of the 2008 draft class that didn't make the 53-man roster. Mattran got significant work at left tackle during the preseason and could ultimately provide depth at multiple positions.


CHICAGO BEARS

  • DE Ervin Baldwin

  • OT Cody Balogh

  • LB Joey LaRocque

  • TE Fontel Mines

  • G Tyler Reed

Of note: The Bears have three more spaces to fill. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that two of those spots will be filled by receiver Brandon Rideau and fullback Jason Davis.
