Vikings put Akayleb Evans on IR after latest concussion

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings placed cornerback Akayleb Evans on injured reserve Wednesday after his most recent concussion, meaning the rookie must sit out at least the next four games.

The roster move was made to make room for cornerback Cameron Dantzler, who was designated for return from injured reserve following a four-game absence because of an ankle injury.

Evans started two of the four games that Dantzler missed. He was sidelined by a concussion for the other two, before a recurrence of the head injury in Minnesota's most recent game. Coach Kevin O'Connell said that was the third concussion Evans has had since joining the Vikings as a fourth-round draft pick out of Missouri.
