The Vikings claimed running back Ameer Abdullah off waivers from the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Abdullah, 25, was the Lions' leading rusher two of the past three seasons.

The transaction was confirmed by NFL sources.

A second-round pick (54th overall) out of Nebraska in 2015, Abdullah fell behind rookie Kerryon Johnson and veterans Theo Riddick and LeGarrette Blount on the Detroit depth chart. He played in only three games, rushing once for a yard and catching two passes.

Abdullah, 5-9 and 200 pounds, led the Lions in rushing as a rookie with 597 yards but was sidelined for most of 2016 because of foot surgery. He had 552 rushing yards last season.
