Vikings sign a couple cornerbacks to practice squad, release 2 other players

By Derek Wetmore

The Vikings have signed two cornerbacks to the practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

Cornerback Tre Roberson, a rookie out of Illinois State, was with the team in training camp and now rejoins the practice squad. And they’ve also added Julian Wilson, a second-year cornerback out of Oklahoma.

To make room on the practice squad, the Vikings have waived tackle Carter Bykowski and safety Shamiel Gary, whom they had only recently signed.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes had an MRI on his right knee Monday, and head coach Mike Zimmer said the veteran corner won’t need surgery. It’s not clear his time table to return, although he was seen walking without assistance Monday, and without the use of crutches. He wore a small wrap on his injured knee.
