Minnesota Vikings Add OL Kropog, Waive WR Gurley From Practice Squad

The Minnesota Vikings made a move on their practice squad on Tuesday afternoon, one that might come as a mild surprise.

The team waived WR Tori Gurley, who they signed as a free agent after final cuts were completed. Gurley cleared waivers after the Green Bay Packers released him, and signed with the team that offered him a spot on the active roster for the final three games of 2011.

To fill that practice squad spot, the Vikings signed offensive linemen Troy Kropog. Kropog was a fourth-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Tulane, and played in six games for the Titans between 2009 and 2010. He spent 2011 on the Titans' practice squad, and was released by the team a week ago. Kropog was then signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, and only practiced twice with Jacksonville before the Jaguars released him as well.

Like I said, not an earth-shattering move or anything, but I'm surprised the Vikings let Gurley go already. I thought he might have had a chance to get himself onto the active roster here at some point, given the Vikings' dearth of weapons in the deep passing game. Then again, provided nobody else signs him, he could always find himself on the team's practice squad again in the future.
