Josiah Price out for season with knee injury

He was carted off the field during Wednesday’s practice

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

With their 2018 Training Camp in the books, it appears that the Minnesota Vikings have lost another member of the 90-man roster to an injury.

According to Courtney Cronin of ESPN, tight end Josiah Price will miss the 2018 season with a knee injury. Price suffered the injury during Wednesday’s practice with the Jacksonville Jaguars and needed to be carted off of the field.

Price initially signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in 2017. He was a part of the team’s final cuts, and the team brought him in March before waiving him again in July. He was brought back again just before the start of Training Camp.

Price likely wasn’t going to make the 53-man roster for the Vikings, but it still stinks to see a player lose an entire season to an injury like this.

While the Vikings haven’t officially made a move with Price yet, it appears as though they’re going to have an opening on the 90-man roster to fill leading up to the All-Important Third Preseason Game™ against the Seattle Seahawks a week from today.

Here’s hoping for a full and speedy recover for Josiah Price, and that this is the last significant injury we see for the Vikings this preseason.
