Hall fails Vikings physical and Jefferson cleared

The trade that sent defensive tackle P.J. Hall from Las Vegas to Minnesota for a conditional draft pick has been negated after Hall failed a physical with the Vikings.

Minnesota had agreed to send a conditional seventh-round pick in 2021 to the Raiders for Hall. The Vikings sent him back to the Raiders and he was then waived by Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Armon Watts, who will have a chance for more playing time with Michael Pierce missing the season, was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.

The Vikings activated first-round wide receiver Justin Jefferson and seventh-round safety Brian Cole II from the same list.
