Vikings waive TE Pruitt, activate QB Heinicke

By Matthew Coller

The Minnesota Vikings didn’t make a move at kicker on Tuesday, but they did make one roster move by waiving tight end MyCole Pruitt and activating quarterback Taylor Heinicke.

Pruitt was a fifth round draft pick in 2015. He played 13 games for the Vikings last year and caught 10 passes for 89 yards. He has been injured for most of this season, playing in only two games and catching one pass.

In 2015, Heinicke was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Old Dominion where he threw 132 touchdowns in four years as a starting quarterback. At the NFL combine, he ran a 4.62 40-yard dash. In late July, Heinicke suffered a severed tendon in his foot after kicking a door.
