      Armstead cleared the concussion protocol, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

      Analysis: Armstead suffered the injury in the preseason opener and missed the following game. He should be back for Thursday's exhibition against Jacksonville to battle for backup work behind Leonard Fournette. Alfred Blue's expected absence due to an ankle injury frees up more reps for Armstead, Thomas Rawls, Devante Mays and Elijah Hood. Based on the division of playing time the past two weeks, Blue appeared to have a lead for the No. 2 role.

      Mattison had 10 carries for 41 yards in Sunday's preseason win over Seattle.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With Dalvin Cook likely to sit out the entire preseason as the Vikings play it safe with their starting running back, Mattison has been the starter in the first two preseason games. His 4.1 YPC on Sunday were a positive sign as he could gain a significant role off the bench and emerge as the goal-line back. He looks set to win the No. 2 running back role.

      Grant (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Looking to rebound from last year's season-ending Achilles injury, Grant was dealt a setback early in training camp in the form of a hamstring issue. He missed the first two weeks of the preseason but may have a shot to make it back for Thursday's exhibition against the Jaguars. With Allen Hurns and Preston Williams now battling for roles, Grant could find himself fifth or sixth on the depth chart at wide receiver, though he still figures to reign supreme in the return game.

      Miller (hamstring) was back at practice Monday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Miller has missed the last two weeks with the soft-tissue injury, and coach Bruce Arians emphasized Monday that the rookie has plenty of catching up to do in order to have a chance of securing one of the final receiver spots. Bobo Wilson and Justin Watson appear to be relatively entrenched in the No. 4 and No. 5 slots at the moment, so Miller seemingly needs to stand out over the final two exhibitions to gain significant ground.

      Jones (knee) did not practice Monday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Auman additionally reported that Jones didn't have any sort of limp and that head coach Bruce Arians attributed Jones' absence strictly to soreness. The second-year back got plenty of work throughout training camp and logged a pair of carries in Friday's preseason win over the Dolphins, but Kevin O'Donnell of Fox13 tweeted a screen shot of a potential hyperextension that Jones may have suffered in his left knee while returning the opening kickoff of that contest. Jones should be considered day-to-day for the time being, with his next opportunity to practice coming Tuesday.

      Beckham (hip) didn't take part in team drills at Monday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Beckham is managing a hip issue, so it's not surprising to see his practice activities limited Monday. Still, it's something that he's been downplaying and his Week 1 status doesn't seem to be in any danger. Beckham's status for Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers, however, is unclear.
