Vikings waive injured DT B.J. Dubose, sign NT Bruce Gaston

By Andrew Krammer

MINNEAPOLIS — The Viking waive/injured defensive tackle B.J. Dubose on Tuesday.

Dubose, 24, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during an Organized Team Activity practice last week, according to a source. The team had to expose him to waivers because he has fewer than four accrued seasons. If Dubose goes unclaimed, he’ll revert to the Vikings injured reserve list.

The Vikings drafted Dubose in the sixth round (193rd overall) in 2015.

Taking his place, the Vikings signed nose tackle Bruce Gaston.

Gaston, 24, is on his sixth team entering just his third NFL season. He went undrafted in 2014 out of Purdue and has most recently spent time last season with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. He has also been on rosters for the Arizona Cardinals, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins.

Gaston (6-2, 310) appeared in seven games for the Bears last season and was credited with 11 combined tackles and one sack.

The post Vikings waive injured DT B.J. Dubose, sign NT Bruce Gaston appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
