After losing LT Jake Long for the season to an Achilles tear, the team has signed former Jaguars practice squad OL Rashod Hill, NFL agent Brett Tessler tweeted Tuesday.

The Vikings have lost four tackles since around the time of training camp, and with LT Matt Kalil on injured reserve and unlikely to return this year, it’s clear they need more bodies at the position.
