Minneapolis, MN – Monday evening the Minnesota Vikings waived thirteen players trimming their roster down to 76 players. Tuesday morning they completed the first round of roster cuts by moving wide receiver Greg Childs to the regular season Physically Unable to Perform list (the PUP list).

Childs has spent the past twelve months recovering and rehabbing from tearing both of his patellar tendons during the Vikings 2012 Training Camp night practice in Blakeslee Stadium. Unfortunately, his road to recovery just got about eight weeks longer today.

Childs will be able to participate in team meetings and workout at the Vikings facilities but will not be able to practice with his teammates. Now that he has been placed on the PUP list, Childs will automatically miss the first six weeks of the regular season. After Minnesota’s week six game against the Carolina Panthers, the team will have a three week window in which they can have Childs return to practicing with the team. From the moment he begins official practice sessions with the team, another three week window will begin where the Vikings will have to decide whether they will activate him to the official 53-man roster or keep him on the PUP for the remainder of the season.

Childs was the 134th overall selection for the Vikings in the 2012 NFL Draft. The Vikings roster is now set at 75-players for Thursday’s preseason game against the Titans. Cut day to bring the official 53-man roster is 5pm, August 31st.
