Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Re-signed by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed Sherels to a contract Friday.

Sherels' opportunity to rejoin Minnesota's roster comes following the placement of Mike Hughes (neck) on injured reserve. The special-teams ace stands to take over as the team's top punt returner, per Chad Graff of The Athletic. The 32-year-old previously spent nine consecutive seasons with the Vikings after joining the team as an undrafted free agent in 2010.

Marcus Sherels: Waived by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday.

Sherels joined the team a little more than a month ago. He only ended up seeing the field in special teams situations and is now set to look for a new opportunity.

Dolphins' Marcus Sherels: Joins Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels was signed by the Dolphins on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

Sherels has gained extensive special teams experience since joining the league as a rookie with the Vikings back in 2010, appearing in a total of 123 games to this point. The former Minnesota Gopher may not see much action at cornerback in Miami, but he could relieve wide receiver Jakeem Grant of return duties as the latter looks to get more involved in the offensive game plan.

Marcus Sherels: Let go by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels was released by the Vikings on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old re-signed with the Vikings in late September to serve as the punt returner, but he ended up losing the job to Mike Hughes. Sherels has played hardly any defensive snaps since 2013 and will have to look for return work elsewhere.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Returns to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels signed a contract with the Vikings on Tuesday.

With Chad Beebe (ankle) now on injured reserve, the Vikings needed to find a reliable punt returner. Sherels gives them just that. The 31-year-old cornerback has long been one of the league's most dangerous returners and should be able to step right into a familiar situation and pick up where he left off. Last season, Sherels averaged 12 yards per punt return, fifth highest in the NFL.

Marcus Sherels: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (undisclosed) was waived off injured reserve by the Saints with an injury settlement Sunday.

Sherels was set to miss the entire season after being placing on IR prior to Saturday's roster deadline, but he'll now be free to sign elsewhere once he recovers from the undisclosed injury. The 31-year-old signed with the Saints in March after spending the previous nine seasons as a return specialist for the Vikings.

Saints' Marcus Sherels: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Sherels had spent his entire nine-year career with the Vikings prior to signing with the Saints. A backup for most of his career, he'll figure to provide the Saints secondary depth while also contributing on special teams.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Resumes running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) completed his rehab and has resumed running, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Sherels was forced to sit out the season finale after sustaining the foot injury Week 16 against the Lions. The 31-year-old's health is paramount as he enters free agency looking to land a job as a returner.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Unavailable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Sherels will remain sidelined as he nurses a foot injury sustained during last week's win over the Lions. Adam Thielen and Holton Hill will see increased work returning punts as long as Sherels is unable to play.

December 23, 2018 10:00 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Out for remainder of contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (foot) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's game.

With Sherels out, Adam Thielen is the likely candidate to assume primary punt returning duties. Sherels' status for next week's regular season finale should become clearer following Sunday's game.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Leaves game with foot issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a foot injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The extent of Sherels' foot injury is still uncertain. Sherels' temporary absence is most felt on special teams. For the time being, Adam Thielen and Holton Hill seem the likely candidates to slide in as the primary punt returners.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Practices Wednesday in full capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) participated in full during Wednesday's practice session.

After sitting out the last three weeks, Sherels participated fully Wednesday, which puts him in a great position to retake the field in Week 6 against the Cardinals. While he doesn't provide much from a defensive standpoint, Sherels is a valuable contributor on special teams, working both on the punt and kick returns.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Sherels was limited in practice all week but will still be unavailable for Sunday's contest in Philadelphia. It's still good progress for Sherels -- who didn't practice all of last week -- so it's possible the Vikings could get their primary return man back for Week 6.

September 27, 2018 07:08 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) didn't practice Wednesday and won't play Thursday against the Rams, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

Sherels hasn't logged a defensive snap yet this season, so his absence will only be felt on special teams, where he serves as a returner. Rookie Mike Hughes is expected to field punts and kicks in Sherels' stead.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Not practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) sat out Tuesday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Sherels suffered a rib injury in Week 2 and was inactive Sunday against the Bills. The 30-year-old cornerback will have to make a dramatic recovery if he expects to play Thursday versus the Bills, though that seems unlikely. Mike Hughes is set to take Sherels' place as the team's punt and kick returner.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (ribs) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Sherels suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Packers, and he wasn't even able to put in limited work during this week of preparation. Sherels' absence will mainly be felt on special teams, as the Vikings will now likely lean on cornerback Mike Hughes to return punts and kicks Sunday.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury.

Sherels' injury was initially classified as a chest issue when he departed Sunday's tie with the Packers, but the Vikings have since clarified their top return man's setback. Sherels will likely need to practice at some point this week to avoid an inactive status for the Week 3 contest against the Bills.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Exits game with chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a chest injury.

Sherels managed to suit up in Week 2 after nursing a hamstring injury, but was forced out after suffering a chest injury of undisclosed severity. As long as Sherels remains sidelined, Mike Hughes will serve as the Vikings' primary kick and punt returner.

September 6, 2018 06:24 PM
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Sherels was able to practice fully after being limited earlier in the week, and appears to have recovered from the hamstring injury he had been nursing. One of the Vikings' top special teams performers, Sherels is trending towards taking the field against San Francisco on Sunday.

Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Hurts leg Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherels suffered a leg injury during Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Sherels gets most of his snaps on special teams, and he also works as a returner. If his injury is serious, the team will turn to Mike Hughes to field kicks.
