Vikings Promote Stephen Burton From the Practice Squad

The Vikings have selected practice squad hand Stephen Burton to replace outgoing receiver Bernard Berrian, says the official team site. Burton was this year’s 7th round draft pick. Practice squad receiver Manny Arceneaux was the fan favorite to take Berrian’s place but for now Arceneaux will remain on the PS.

The Vikings rolled with only four wide receivers against the Packers and don’t figure to have five dressed against Carolina, so unless Percy Harvin is forced to sit with his nagging rib issue, don’t look for Burton to be active this weekend.
