MINNEAPOLIS — A big offseason signing by the Minnesota Vikings just can't seem to get out on the field. 

On Friday, the team announced outside linebacker Marcus Davenport has been ruled out with an ankle injury. 

Davenport injured his ankle right before the team's first regular season game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was ruled out of that game. He was active for the second-week game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but only played four snaps.

On Thursday, Davenport said he was pulled from the Eagles game because his ankle "wasn't at the place" it should be. He says the injury is progressing. The first-round draft pick by the New Orleans Saints has had trouble staying healthy since entering the NFL in 2018. 

On the offensive side, Vikings' center Garrett Bradbury is listed as questionable for Sunday with a back injury. 

Earlier this week, the team placed depth wide receiver Jalen Nailor on the injured reserve list.
