Staying in Minnesota

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-09

The Vikings singed Gaskin to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Gaskin spent the majority of the year on Minnesota's practice squad, appearing in three games and failing to record a single stat in just 10 snaps. He'll look to compete for a depth role this offseason in a backfield that's seemingly open for the time being.

Reverts to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Gaskin reverted to the Vikings' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Gaskin was elevated to Minnesota's active roster prior to Saturday's loss to the Bengals. He ultimately saw the field for two special teams snaps (seven percent). The running back will now continue to put in work at practice and await another opportunity to be promoted.

Elevated for Saturday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

The Vikings elevated Gaskin from the practice squad for Saturday's game against the Bengals.

With Alexander Mattison (ankle) out for Week 15, Gaskin will provide backfield depth behind Ty Chandler and Kene Nwangwu. Gaskin has yet to play an offensive snap this season.

Back to Minnesota

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-13

Gaskin signed with the Vikings' practice squad Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Gaskin has spent most of the season thus far with Minnesota, bouncing between their 53-man roster and practice squad when he wasn't a free agent. After a short stint with the Rams, the 26-year-old is now back with the Vikings after Alexander Mattison suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Saints and Cam Akers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury the previous week.

Waived by Los Angeles

The Rams waived Gaskin Tuesday.

Signed off the Vikings' practice squad last month, Gaskin appeared in one game for the Rams, seeing just six special teams snaps. Kyren Williams (ankle) is eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 12, and the Rams are now on their bye. Darrell Henderson and Royce Freeman have handled backfield duties in Williams' absence.

Inactive for Week 9

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-05

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

After being signed off the Vikings' practice squad Week 7, Gaskin was inactive for the Rams' ensuing game against the Steelers, but he proceeded to suit up for last week's loss to the Cowboys. However, Gaskin's snaps were limited strictly to special teams in that game, and he'll be out of the mix entirely for Week 9 while the Rams keep rookie Zach Evans active as their No. 3 back behind Darrell Henderson and Royce Freeman.

Not playing Sunday

Gaskin (Coach's Decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

The Rams signed Gaskin off the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday after losing their top two running backs, Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee), to injuries in Week 6. However, the team wants to give Gaskin more time to prepare before potentially playing him in Week 8 against the Cowboys, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Unlikely to suit up Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-21

The Rams are expected to make Gaskin a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Los Angeles backfield has been shaken up this week after its top two members -- Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) -- both landed on injured reserve after sustaining injuries in the Week 6 win over Arizona, but Gaskin doesn't look as though he'll get an immediate opportunity to contribute to his new team. After Gaskin was signed off the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday, the Rams want to give the 26-year-old more time to get acclimated to the offense before potentially having him make his team debut Week 8 at Dallas. The Rams are expected to make rookie sixth-round pick Zach Evans and practice-squad call-ups Royce Freeman and Darrell Henderson their active backs against the Steelers, but Gaskin could end up getting a chance to take on a notable role Week 8 if none of Freeman, Henderson and Evans are able to distinguish themselves this weekend. Schefter suggests that while Freeman is the team's likely starter versus Pittsburgh, Freeman and Henderson will combine to handle the "majority of the workload," with Evans being "sprinkled in" as the No. 3 option out of the backfield.

Catches on with Rams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-17

The Rams signed Gaskin off the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Kyren Williams (ankle) and Ronnie Rivers (knee) both seemingly trending toward absences for Sunday's game against the Steelers, the Rams bolstered their running-back room Tuesday with the signings of Gaskin and Royce Freeman, the latter of whom was promoted from Los Angeles' practice squad. Given that Freeman and the lone other healthy back on the 53-man roster -- rookie sixth-round pick Zach Evans -- have combined to play six snaps on offense over the five total games in which they've suited up this season, neither may be guaranteed work over Gaskin, despite being in the organization longer. Gaskin shouldn't require much time to get up to speed with the Rams' offensive concepts given his recent stint in Minnesota under head coach Kevin O'Connell, a disciple of the Sean McVay coaching tree.
