Not long after promoting and then dismissing running back Joe Banyard, the team has brought him back to the practice squad.  The team didn’t need his services in the dismantling of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday since Matt Asiata was able to find the end zone three times in his first regular season start.

Minnesota also had Spencer Nealy return to the team.  The Vikings are still evaluating defensive ends since they have yet to sign Jared Allen or Everson Griffen to a deal.  The team will continue to evaluate Nealy as a member of the practice squad.
