T.J. Hockenson, TE (DET)

Active in Week 5

Hockenson (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Minnesota.

After missing practice to begin Week 5 prep, Hockenson managed to put in limited sessions Thursday and Friday and set himself up to be a game-time decision. He's made the necessary progress to play Sunday, but it bears watching whether he'll be able to handle his typical 80-plus percent of the offensive snaps. After relatively quiet Weeks 3 and 4 -- during which he registered a combined six catches for 52 yards and no TDs on 10 targets -- Hockenson will look to get back on track against a Vikings defense that has conceded the third highest YPT (10.5 yards) to tight ends this season.
