After be inactive in Week 1 of the regular season, wide receiver Josh Doctson has been placed on injured reserve by the Vikings, according to a report from NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. 

Doctson is apparently dealing with a leg injury, which is likely the hamstring injury the Vikings listed Doctson with on Wednesday's injury report. 

Minnesota signed Doctson after the fourth-year wideout was released by the Redskins. Doctson was selected one spot before the Vikings took Laquon Treadwell in the 2016 NFL Draft. Minnesota released Treadwell and replaced him with Doctson. 

Tight end Tyler Conklin (ribs), cornerback Mike Hughes (knee), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), and cornerback Mark Fields (groin) were all limited in practice on Wednesday.
