Jarius Wright dominated Thursday night's game against the Texans, catching six passes for 122 yards and touchdown. The rookie landed wrong on his ankle and left the game in the second half, but he made a compelling case for the No. 4 receiver spot while he had the chance.
Analysis: The Vikings gave their backup receivers plenty of playing time in the final game of the preseason, and Wright emerged on top. Devin Aromashodu put in a solid performance with five receptions for 89 yards and touchdown, but Wright was the most talked about player at the end of the night. Reports afterward indicate that his ankle was not seriously injured, so it can be assumed Minnesota will hand him the fourth receiver spot on the depth chart. He may not have an immediate impact, but he's worth keeping an eye on if anyone gets hurt in their receiving corps.
