Over the past couple of days, the Minnesota Vikings have made a handful of roster moves, and since there were a couple that we missed, we’ll summarize them for you now.
A couple of the moves involve cornerbacks, as the team has placed Kris Boyd on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Boyd had his issues with special teams penalties this season, but showed some decent improvement at the cornerback position. The Vikings also brought Mark Fields II back from the injured reserve list on Tuesday, having recovered from his punctured lung against the Packers. The Vikings then subsequently waived him on Wednesday.
The Vikings also signed safety Curtis Riley to the practice squad and waived kicker Tristan Vizcaino from the practice squad. That likely means that Dan Bailey is going to get another opportunity to screw his head on straight, but the Vikings have been working out kickers.
The team has also signed linebacker James Lynch from the practice squad to the active roster. Lynch has been elevated to the roster from the practice squad a couple of times this year, and now the team has decided to make his spot permanent.
That should summarize all of the moves that the front office has made over the past couple of days. Should they make any more changes. . .like actually swapping out Bailey for someone else at kicker. . .we’ll make sure you’re updated on them.
