MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Former Utah wide receiver Tim Patrick made an impressive catch for the Denver Broncos on a trick play against the Minnesota Vikings.

It was Patrick’s first catch since returning from the injured reserve list after breaking his hand in the season opener against the Oakland Raiders.

The throw came from fellow wideout Courtland Sutton. Running back Phillip Lindsey took the direct snap and went to his left and handed the ball off to Sutton, throwing the ball to Patrick, who was heavily covered by the Vikings defensive back. Patrick managed to make the catch for a 38-yard gain.

Denver, who is 3-6 on the season, was already up on the Vikings 10-0 and the trick play put them even closer to the end zone. The Broncos scored a touchdown on that drive when fullback Andy Janovich ran in a one-yard score to give Denver a 17-0 lead on the 7-3 Vikings.

Patrick is in his second NFL season after signing with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent. Entering the game, Patrick has 23 receptions for 315 yards and one touchdown.
