The Minnesota Vikings filled out their eight-man practice squad on Monday with two more rookies who spent time on the roster in camp.

The team announced on Monday it has re-signed tackle Kevin Murphy and defensive lineman Ernest Owusu to the practice squad.

The Vikings also confirmed the previously reported signings of receivers Tori Gurley (formerly of Green Bay) and Chris Summers (Chicago).

Previously announced practice squad signings include Tyler Holmes, defensive tackle Chase Baker, cornerback Bobby Felder and halfback Jordan Todman.

Not on the list was defensive lineman Trevor Guyton, the only member of the Vikings' rookie draft class who didn't make the 53-man roster.

Practice squad players make a minimum of $5,700 a week during the regular season and are free to sign to another team's 53-man roster at any time.
