Wright is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright was bumped to the inactive list last week as coach Mike Zimmer opted to make rookie Laquon Treadwell available. However, with Treadwell failing to distinguish himself in the win over the Packers, Wright will have an opportunity to get back on the field while serving as the Vikings' No. 5 wideout. Don't expect Wright to see many looks from quarterback Sam Bradford over the course of the day.

Wright is inactive for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is healthy after missing much of the preseason with a calf injury. However, he's fallen down the depth chart and there were reports the Vikings were even trying to trade him. He may be inactive most weeks unless an injury strikes the wide receiving corps.

Wright is listed behind Charles Johnson, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and Cordarrelle Patterson on the unofficial Week 1 depth chart

EDGE Analysis

This confirms that Wright has been buried on the depth chart, with Adam Thielen likely taking on slot duties in three-wide formations to start the season. Laquon Treadwell could push for the No. 3 wideout role before long, as starter Stefon Diggs is expected to play a lot of snaps from the slot. Regardless, Wright has been marginalized in the Minnesota offense and may eventually be a candidate for release.

Wright had three receptions for 35 yards on six targets in Thursday's preseason win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Wright showed he's healthy after missing the first two preseason games with a sore hamstring. However, his spot on the depth chart remains unclear as Adam Thielen and perhaps Laquon Tredwell may be ahead of him as the regular season begins.

Wright (calf) caught his lone target for a 26-yard gain in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright proved his health and made the most of his lone target, but it was still a discouraging night for the fifth-year wideout, as he didn't get a single snap while Teddy Bridgewater was still in the game, according to Pro Football Focus. With Laquon Tredwell and Adam Thielen potentially both jumping Wright on Minnesota's depth chart, the veteran slot specialist may fall back to the No. 5 spot. The Vikings will likely keep six wide receivers, as Cordarrelle Patterson is one of the NFL's premiere kick returners.

Wright, who has been sidelined because of an apparent calf injury, participated in practice Saturday for the first time since Aug. 8, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright says he expects to play at some point in the preseason. He has not played in the first two preseason games. In the meantime, Adam Thielen is having a strong preseason and making a case to get playing time ahead of Wright as the team's fourth receiver.

Wright (undisclosed) expects to play at some point in the preseason, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I'm doing pretty good," Wright said Tuesday. "I'll definitely be back to play in a preseason game. I'm not really sure which one yet. But I'm doing pretty good."

EDGE Analysis

Wright hasn't practiced since suffering an unknown ailment at an Aug. 6 practice, which all but rules him out for Thursday's game at Seattle. During the aforementioned media session, he was seen wearing a sleeve on his lower left leg but wouldn't acknowledge its nature because the Vikings have not. If he indeed plays in the preseason, he'll likely be contained to the third week of exhibitions, as it's the one in which regular members of organizations receive their highest snap count before the regular season. Once he attains full health, his status as the receiver with the most connections with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in his brief career should help Wright hold down a consistent role.

Wright (undisclosed) didn't travel with the Vikings in advance of Friday's preseason game at Cincinnati, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is among a number of Vikings to remain in Mankato, Minn. rather than make the trip in order to receive treatment, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Because Zimmer didn't disclose the nature of any injury, Wright's status is in limbo in the short term. Perhaps Wright's biggest concern is his listing as a fourth-stringer on the Vikings' first unofficial depth chart of training camp.
