Vikings Waive TE Pruitt, Activate QB Heinicke

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings announced Tuesday that they’ve waived tight end MyCole Pruitt and activated quarterback Taylor Heinicke from the reserve/non-football injury list.

Pruitt was a fifth-round draft pick by the Vikings last year and played in every game, finishing the season with 10 catches for 89 yards. His release was to make room for Heinicke on the Vikings’ 53-man roster. Heinicke had missed extended time with a non-football related foot injury.

Heinicke will be the Vikings’ third-string quarterback.

The Vikings haven’t made an announcement on kicker Blair Walsh. Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that they would be bringing kickers in for workouts on Tuesday, putting Walsh’s status with the team in doubt.
