At his press conference on Monday, Minnesota Vikings’ head coach Mike Zimmer said that the team was still gathering information prior to making their decision on offensive lineman Isame Faciane, who was arrested for DWI last week.
Looks like they found the data they wanted.
The Vikings dropped Faciane from their practice squad on Tuesday, replacing him with cornerback Tre Roberson.
Faciane was in his third season on the Vikings’ practice squad, and his second as an offensive lineman after spending his first season in Minnesota at defensive tackle.
Roberson is now in his third stint on the Vikings’ practice squad. Another converted player, he played quarterback at Indiana and at Illinois State before moving to the defensive side of the ball with the Vikings.
As it stands now, the Vikings’ practice squad currently looks like this:
WR Moritz Böhringer
TE Kyle Carter
WR Isaac Fruechte
RB C.J. Ham
OL Sean Hickey
DT Toby Johnson
TE Brian Leonhardt
CB Tre Roberson
QB Joel Stave
DE Stephen Weatherly
