The Vikings activated defensive tackle Armon Watts from the COVID-19 reserve list on Thursday morning and placed wide receiver Bralon Addison on waivers.

Watts, who was placed on the reserve list earlier this week, is expected to compete for a starting job at defensive tackle after veteran Michael Pierce opted out for the season because of concerns about COVID-19.
