Vikings WR Charles Johnson had a broken rib in 2015

Vikings receiver Charles Johnson said on Thursday he broke a rib last September against San Diego, while trying to come back for a ball that San Diego's Steve Williams intercepted. Johnson said it took him until the Vikings' win over the Chicago Bears on Nov. 1 – during which the receiver made a critical 34-yard catch – to feel like he could play while managing the injury. "You can't sneeze, you can't move, laughing hurts," Johnson said. "But it's all good now."

Fantasy Impact:

This helps to explain his extremely disappointing production after a hot finish to the 2014 season. With Mike Wallace out of the way, Johnson should have a chance to compete for starter's snaps now that he's fully healthy.

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed backup running back Matt Asiata.

Vikings will release WR Mike Wallace

Vikings are releasing Mike Wallace, source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace had a very disappointing first season in Minnesota. He was outplayed by Stefon Diggs, who enters the offseason as the team's WR1. The Vikings are likely to address the position in the offseason. As for Wallace, the free agent WR market is weak, so it's likely that some team will overpay him based on his past success.

In a surprise move, the Seattle Seahawks have downgraded running back Marshawn Lynch to out for Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lynch has not played in a game since Nov. 15, and he underwent abdominal surgery Nov. 25. He had been rehabbing in San Francisco but rejoined the team for workouts and practices this week.

But following the team's final workout at its practice facility Friday, the Seahawks said, Lynch notified them that he could not play Sunday. He did not travel with the team to Minneapolis later in the day.

According to a source, Lynch did not suffer any kind of setback with his injury during Friday's practice.

In fact, he saw seven red zone touches over that span compared to just three for Michael. Fred Jackson led the Seattle running backs with eight catches for 66 yards over the three game span.
