The Minnesota Vikings are planning to activate TE Irv Smith (ankle) from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Jan. 7, so that he can be eligible to play in the team's Week 18 game versus the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Smith has been sidelined since Week 8 due to a high-ankle sprain. There won't be much of a role for him in the team's offense anymore because T.J. Hockenson, who can be viewed as a TE1 in fantasy leagues, has taken over the starting job at tight end for Minnesota.

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Smith hasn't suited up since Week 8 thanks to his ankle issue. Even when he does come back, there won't be much of a role for him, as T.J. Hockenson is cemented as the Vikings' top tight end and is a TE1.

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) will not need surgery on his ankle at this time, according to head coach Kevin O'Connell.
Huddle Up: Smith is still expected to miss most of the remaining games this season because of the injury, so fantasy players can drop him if they need to roster space.

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) may need to undergo surgery on his high ankle sprain and is receiving a second option on the injury, according to head coach Kevin O'Connell.
Huddle Up: Smith is expected to miss most of the remaining games and probably would be ruled out for the season if he undergoes surgery. Fantasy players can consider dropping Smith if they need the roster space. T.J. Hockenson will be the starting tight end for Minnesota and can be a weekly starting option.

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: It was announced earlier in the day that Smith is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks with the high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 8. Even the most optimistic projection puts his return at about Week 16, so his fantasy managers should have no problem moving on, especially after the team acquired T.J. Hockenson via trade earlier in the day.

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) is expected to be sidelined eight to 10 weeks with the high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Vikings may have been ready to move on from Smith anyway given his lack of durability, but this news explains why Minnesota likely felt compelled to trade for T.J. Hockenson on Tuesday. Smith is almost certain to go on IR in the coming hours. Even the most optimistic projection puts his return at about Week 16, so his fantasy managers should have no problem cutting the cord now.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith (ankle) was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain Monday, Oct. 31, and is expected to miss multiple games.
Huddle Up: Blocking specialist Johnny Mundt is the only healthy tight end on the roster for at least one more week as the injured Ben Ellefson (groin) has to sit at least one more game before he is eligible to come off IR. With Ellefson likely due back soon, it is possible Minnesota rides it out with him and Mundt until Smith returns. A more likely scenario - especially given the nagging nature of high-ankle sprains - is that the Vikings make a deal for a tight end before Tuesday's trade deadline expires. Smith can be dropped in most 12-team leagues.
