The Minnesota Vikings activated defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.
The Vikings (5-6) have had several players miss time due to COVID protocols and Tomlinson was their last player remaining on the list.
He landed there on Nov. 23 and missed the first game of his five-year career last week, a 34-26 loss at San Francisco.
Tomlinson, 27, has recorded 26 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and a fumble recovery in 10 games (all starts) this season, his first in Minnesota.
He played in all 64 games (all starts) with the New York Giants from 2017-20.
Tomlinson’s return coincides with that of fellow DT Michael Pierce, who was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday.
Pierce, 27, has missed the past seven games with an elbow injury. He had nine tackles — two for loss — and two sacks in four games (all starts) before the injury.
