The Vikings activated RB Kene Nwangwu from injured reserve and returned him to their 53-man roster.

Kene Nwangwu designated to return from IR

Kene Nwangwu (back) has been designated to return from IR and his 21-day practice window is open.

Fantasy Impact

Nwangwu hasn't appeared in a game yet this year after being placed on IR because of a back injury before the season started, but now, he's been designated to return. His 21-day practice window is open, meaning that the team will have three weeks to activate him to the active roster. He should be back in the near future and will offer a massive boost to Minnesota's special-teams unit and could play a small role in the backfield moving forward.

Kene Nwangwu will play against the Giants Sunday, per NFL insider Tom Pelissero.

Fantasy Impact

Nwangwu was listed as questionable due to an illness. The 24-year-old did not practice Friday, but he will suit up in the wild-card round and likely handle the bulk of the kick-return duties for the Vikings.

Kene Nwangwu gets nine touches in preseason opener

Kene Nwangwu rushed the ball seven times for 41 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards during the Vikings' 26-20 loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

The 24-year-old second-year running back appeared in 11 games last season, rushing 13 times for 61 yards. He is battling Ty Chandler for the third spot on the depth chart behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison and will not hold any fantasy appeal unless multiple injuries occur.
