Back on roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-12

Gaskin was signed to the Vikings' 53-man roster Tuesday, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gaskin ended up on Minnesota's practice squad after being let go from the Dolphins, but he was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. However, the 26-year-old did not play a single snap in the game and was reverted to the practice squad Monday. Now, it appears the Washington product will remain a part of the active roster with his next chance to see the field being Thursday against the Eagles.

Returns to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Gaskin reverted to Minnesota's practice squad Monday.

Gaskin did not play a snap during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers and is now headed back to the practice squad. With Alexander Mattison handling the majority of snaps and DeWayne McBride also on the practice squad, it could be awhile before Gaskin sees the field again.

Doesn't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Gaskin was active but did not play in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Gaskin is third on the depth chart at running back, but will have a limited depth role barring injuries. He may be moved to the practiced squad if Kene Nwangwu returns from injured reserve from a back injury.

Suiting up Sunday

Minnesota signed Gaskin to its practice squad and elevated him to the active roster Saturday.

The 26-year-old back out of Washington was waived by both the Dolphins and Vikings this offseason before agreeing to join Minnesota's practice squad. Gaskin will join Ty Chandler in backing up Alexander Mattison ahead of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Expected to return to Vikings

Though the Vikings released Gaskin on Friday, Kevin Seifert of indicates that the transaction was a procedural move and the running back is expected to return to the team.

Per Seifert, Gaskin is expected to resurface on Minnesota's practice squad and then subsequently is in line to be promoted back to the team's active roster. For now though, Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler are the only running backs on the Vikings' 53-man roster, though DeWayne McBride is currently on the practice squad.

Cut loose by Minnesota

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-08

The Vikings released Gaskin on Friday.

Gaskin lasted only 9-10 days with the Vikings after the Dolphins cut him at the end of the preseason. Minnesota is left with Alexander Mattison and Ty Chandler as the only RBs on the 53-man roster, making rookie DeWayne McBride a strong candidate to come up from the practice squad early in the season, if not for Week 1 against Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, Gaskin could get a shot elsewhere this fall if a team is looking for a veteran back with plenty of experience handling passing downs.

Links with Minnesota

Gaskin is signing with the Vikings on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Cut by Miami a day earlier, Gaskins lands on his feet with a team that has minimal experience in the backfield behind Alexander Mattison. The Vikings also kept Ty Chandler and Kene Nwangwu (undisclosed) on their initial 53-man roster, but the latter's presence may be about special teams more so than offense. Gaskins started 17 of his 27 games for Miami between 2020 and 2021, averaging a 158-598-3 rushing line (3.8 YPC) and 45-311-3 receiving line (5.7 YPT) over the two-season stretch.

Cut free by Miami

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-29

The Dolphins cut Gaskin on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Gaskin made 17 starts between the 2020 and 2021 seasons but then got only 11 touches in four games last year and tumbled further down the depth chart this offseason. He spent the preseason working behind Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson (undisclosed), De'Von Achane (shoulder) and Salvon Ahmed (head), with even undrafted rookie Chris Brooks making his case to surpass Gaskin on the depth chart. If Gaskin does get a chance elsewhere this season, it might be as a passing-down back.

Strong showing in preseason loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-11

Gaskin carried the ball seven times for 57 yards and caught both his targets for 20 yards in Friday's preseason loss to the Falcons.

Rookie De'Von Achane was expected to get a chance to flash his elite speed in the exhibition opener, but instead it was Gaskin who got the start in the backfield, and his experience in coach Mike McDaniels' system showed as he led Miami in rushing yards and scrimmage yards. With Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson (undisclosed) at the top of the depth chart, Gaskin could be fighting with Salvon Ahmed for the fourth and final spot at RB, but his solid performance Friday should keep him firmly ahead.
