B.J. Dubose Tears ACL, Done For 2016

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings have completed their second day of Organized Team Activities, and they've already lost a player for the entire 2016 season.

Second-year defensive lineman B.J. Dubose tore his ACL during Wednesday's practice session, and the team has declared that he is already out for the year.

Dubose was a sixth-round pick of the Vikings in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Louisville. He was a part of the final cutdown in Training Camp and wound up getting signed to the practice squad. He was eventually bumped up to the active roster for the Vikings' playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. He did not see action in that contest.

This isn't necessarily a devastating injury for the Vikings, as Dubose was competing for a roster spot and a chance to be on the depth chart behind Sharrif Floyd, Linval Joseph, and Tom Johnson. Still, it's kind of a bummer to see this happen two days into practices after a guy prepared himself all offseason to get his shot at making the team.

With the injury to Dubose, the Vikings have a spot on their 90-man roster to fill. We will let you know who they fill it with when an announcement is made.
