Vikings wide receiver Aaron Hosack, who spent the 2005 NFL season on injured reserve, led three Vikings this past weekend in NFL Europe action.
Hosack, a former Minnesota Gopher, had five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Frankfurt Galaxy's 38-20 loss.
Cornerback Ronyell Whitaker, one of the first signings made by the new Vikings coaching staff this offseason, started at right cornerback for the undefeated (3-0) Rhein Fire and posted three tackles, a pass defensed, and a tackle on special teams in their 20-10 win over the Cologne Centurions.
Offensive tackle Sean Bubin, who was on the Vikings practice squad last year, started at right tackle for the Hamburg Sea Devils in their 17-17 tie with Berlin. Bubin helped Hamburg rush for 141 yards.
All three Vikings are back in action on Saturday.
