Minneapolis, MN – As it does regularly in today’s social media age, news is starting to trickle out surrounding Minnesota Vikings cuts. The first casualty of today’s news is running back Joe Banyard.

Banyard has one NFL season under his belt spending the final five weeks of the 2012 season and one playoff week on the Vikings practice squad. Banyard seemingly lost the third string running back battle to Matt Asiata after having 26 carries for 123 yards and 1 TD during the preseason.

Banyard is eligible to be placed on the Vikings practice squad and will likely clear waivers and land their early next week.
