EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed long snapper Jeff Overbaugh and placed guard Nick Easton on injured reserve.

Overbaugh was signed to fill in for Kevin McDermott, who injured his shoulder on Saturday night at Green Bay. McDermott's status for the rest of the season is unclear.

Easton broke his ankle in the first quarter against the Packers, requiring surgery. He was replaced in the lineup at left guard by Jeremiah Sirles.

Overbaugh joins the Vikings after spending the 2016 training camp with the Los Angeles Rams, followed by short stints with Denver and Chicago. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016.
