Vikings Tweak Roster Before First Padded Practice

Posted by Mike Wobschall on July 30, 2012 – 12:23 pm

The Vikings will conduct their first padded practice of 2012 Verizon Vikings Training Camp on Monday afternoon, but before they do the team made a few tweaks to the roster.

DB Nick Taylor was waived with the injured designation, and the Vikings signed DB Chris Stroud to fill the vacant roster spot. Taylor injured his shoulder early in camp, and Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said that the injury would require major surgery. Stroud is a rookie and comes to the Vikings from Webber International.

The team also reported that WR Stephen Burton had passed his physical. Burton has been dealing with a toe injury that kept him out of action the first few days of camp, but passing the physical is a step in the right direction to getting back on the field.
