Minnesota Vikings Add Austin Wentworth To The Practice Squad

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings made another move involving their practice squad on Tuesday, adding offensive lineman Austin Wentworth to the ten-man squad.

Wentworth, an undrafted free agent from Fresno State, originally made the Vikings' 53-man roster, but was released when the Vikings made a couple of roster claims. He saw action at both tackle and guard during the pre-season, and though he had a bit of a rough outing in the third pre-season game against the Kansas City Chiefs, he rebounded in the pre-season finale against the Tennessee Titans.

To make room for Wentworth on the practice squad, the team released cornerback Kendall James, one of the team's sixth-round picks from the 2014 draft. James' release means that he is the only member of the Vikings' 2014 draft class that is not on the team in some capacity.

The practice squad will fluctuate throughout the season, with players being called up to the active roster because of injuries or other issues. For now, though, it appears as though the team finally has things the way they want them.
