The second-year wideout has been placed on IR after being a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Nailor was restricted to special teams while playing in Minnesota's first two games, recording one total tackle. He'll now be forced to miss at least the next four weeks of the Vikings' campaign and will be eligible to return as early as Week 7.

Logs limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-20

Nailor (hamstring) was a limited participant at the Vikings' practice Wednesday.

Nailor is dealing with an apparent hamstring injury and his status for Week 3 versus Los Angeles is potentially in question. Minnesota has two more practices this week before they take on the Chargers on Sunday and the wide receiver's status will be worth monitoring.

Limited to special teams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Nailor had one tackle while playing 18 snaps on special teams in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. He didn't play a snap on offense.

Nailor is the No. 4 receiver on the depth chart, but won't get much action in the passing game unless a top-three wide receiver is injured. He made a big tackle as the gunner on the punt return defensive unit.

Practices Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-04

Nailor (leg) was a full participant at practice Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It appears Nailor has now fully recovered from the leg ailment that's limited him since July. As long as Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison and K.J. Osborn remain available though, Nailor's path to consistent playing time, let alone targets, is narrow.

Makes first camp appearance

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-21

Nailor (leg) is participating in the walkthrough portion of Monday's practice, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.comn reports.

Nailor is back at practice for the first time since he suffered a leg injury July. 29, though participation in a walkthrough doesn't necessarily indicate he's returned to full health. Still, the second-year pro is making strides in his recovery. Saturday's preseason finale against the Cardinals represents Nailor's last chance to get on the field for an exhibition matchup.

Absent from practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-17

Nailor (leg) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Nailor remains sidelined after injuring his leg on July 29. The second-year pass catcher is a fringe-candidate to make the Vikings' 53-man roster and the team appears to be exercising caution with him as of now. He accumulated 179 yards and one touchdown on nine receptions during his rookie campaign. There is no word on his official timeline for return.

Misses game with leg injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-11

Nailor (leg) did not play in Thursday's preseason loss to Seattle.

Nailor hurt his leg in training camp July 29 and hasn't returned to practice. Head coach Kevin O'Connell originally said Nailor would be back soon, but few details have been given on his status. Nailor may be missing out on crucial playing time in preseason games to help win the No. 4 receiver role.

Suffers leg injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-29

Nailor is considered day-to-day after injuring his leg during training camp Saturday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Nailor hurt his leg during training camp Saturday, but head coach Kevin O'Connell believes he will be back shortly. The 24-year-old wideout didn't see the field a ton in last year's campaign but hauled in seven receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown during the last two weeks of the season. Once healthy, Nailor is expected to compete with Jalen Reagor and Brandon Powell for one of the team's final roster spots.

Has four receptions in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-09

Nailor reeled in four of five targets for 62 yards during Sunday's 29-13 win versus the Bears.

Nailor got playing time in the second half after starters were rested ahead of the playoffs. Nailor has seven receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown in his last two games. Although almost all his playing time was in garbage time, he still showed enough to put him in a good spot to compete for a larger role in 2023.
