Minnesota Vikings Roster Cuts: Vikings Drop To 76

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings made two more roster moves. . .one of which, frankly, I thought they had already made. . .and reduced their roster to 76 players.

The first move, which was not unexpected, was to announce that cornerback Josh Robinson would start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform List. Robinson suffered a pectoral injury during the offseason workout program, and has not recovered to the point where he can contribute.

This means that he will miss the team's first six games and that he can not start practicing with the team until late October.

The other move, which is the one I thought the team had already made, was to place offensive tackle Carter Bykowski on injured reserve. Bykowski, like Robinson, suffered a pectoral injury, as we reported to you nearly two weeks ago following the team's preseason victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, the team apparently waited until now to officially place him on the injured reserve list.

This means that the team still has to make one more roster move prior to Tuesday's 3:00 PM Central deadline to reduce the roster to 75 players. We have not yet seen or heard any word on what that move is going to be.
