Vikings declared QB Kyle Sloter, WR Stacey Coley, CB Mackensie Alexander, RB Mack Brown, LT Riley Reiff, DE Tashawn Bower, DT Jaleel Johnson inactive for Week 15 against the Bengals.

This move was expected as Reiff didn't practice all week. Rashod Hill will likely fill in for him at left tackle.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Bengals.

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) also drew the doubtful tag. Reiff isn't going to play after missing all three practices this week. Rashod Hill is a candidate to fill in at left tackle.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Spotted in a walking boot following Week 14, Reiff has now missed the first two days of practice. He looks unlikely to play against the Bengals. In better news, RT Mike Remmers (back) and C Pat Elflein (shoulder) returned to practice this week.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff's (ankle) Week 15 availability is uncertain.

Coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings got better news than expected on Reiff's injury, but wouldn't commit to Reiff suiting up for Sunday's tilt with Cincinnati. Although Reiff has been far from impenetrable on Case Keenum's blind side, he has allowed just two sacks on the year as part of the Vikings' O-Line turnaround.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot following the Week 14 loss to the Panthers.

Reiff limped off the field in the third quarter before riding a cart into the locker room. Coach Mike Zimmer did not have an update after the game, but the boot is obviously a concern. With RT Mike Remmers still sidelined with a back injury and C Pat Elflein dealing with a shoulder issue, the Vikings suddenly have big questions along the offensive line heading into a matchup with the Bengals this week.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (knee) got in a full practice Thursday.

Reiff sat out Wednesday, but it appears as if that was just a maintenance day. The left tackle should be good to go against the Browns.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 12:43:00 PM

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Ravens.

Reiff was added to the report as limited on Friday, suggesting the injury happened during practice. Late-week additions are always cause for concern, although it is possible the Vikings are just being cautious. Rashod Hill would likely get the start if Reiff is forced to sit.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (back) returned to practice Monday.

Reiff had been sidelined for over a week after suffering a back injury during the first practice of camp. The Vikings never seemed concerned about the injury, however, and he should be back to full speed in no time. Reiff and Mike Remmers will give the Vikings new and hopefully improved bookends this season.

Vikings LT Riley Reiff has missed five practices in a row with a back injury.

Reiff had been standing on the sidelines early in the week, but he was not spotted by reporters on Wednesday. "He’s here," coach Mike Zimmer said. "[It’s] just, standing around with the back isn’t very good." There is no reason to believe this is a serious injury at this point, but it is not a great start for the big-money tackle.

Vikings signed OT Riley Reiff, formerly of the Lions, to a five-year, $58.75 million contract.

The deal includes an $11 million signing bonus and $26.3 million guaranteed. Minnesota had to come out of free agency with at least one quality tackle, and they got one. Reiff played right tackle last season, but he started his career on the left. This contract suggests that is where he will play in Minnesota. The Vikings also added RT Mike Remmers to a line which needed to be rebuilt.

Lions GM Bob Quinn said he has opened "discussions" with impending free agents RT Riley Reiff and RG Larry Warford.

"We don't have anything to announce with them," Quinn said, "but we're working toward that." Despite the talks, both players remain likely to reach free agency. Reiff almost certainly wants a shot at a left tackle job, a spot occupied by 2016 first-rounder Taylor Decker in Detroit, and Warford is reportedly expected to command upwards of $9 million a year. If both players walk, Quinn said he will look to free agency for a veteran presence.

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein doesn't expect impeding free agent RT Riley Reiff to re-sign with Detroit.

Reiff is expected to market himself as a left tackle after starting the first four seasons of his career there before flipping to right tackle this past season to make room for 2016 first-round LT Taylor Decker. Reiff may not be able to find a suitor to give him a left-tackle gig, but the Lions also have RG Larry Warford as a free agent-to-be. Reiff will likely command $6-8 million per year.

Lions declared RT Riley Reiff, C Travis Swanson, QB Jake Rudock, WR Jace Billingsley, LB Antwione Williams, FB Michael Burton, and CB Alex Carter inactive for Week 18 against the Seahawks.

Reiff (hip) and Swanson (concussion) were both listed questionable, but aren't ready to play. Cornelius Lucas is expected to start at right tackle, with Graham Glasgow remaining at center and Laken Tomlinson at left guard.
