The Vikings waived Aruna (knee) from IR with an injury settlement Thursday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. Aruna will be free to sign elsewhere in the league when back to full health. The 2018 sixth-round pick is working to recover from a knee injury sustained before his rookie season.
The Vikings placed Aruna (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The rookie sixth-round pick was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars. The quick move to IR signals a significant injury, which will hurt the Vikings' depth headed into the final two preseason games. Still, Aruna wasn't expected to make any fantasy noise behind Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen (leg).
Aruna had to be carted off the field during Saturday's exhibition game against the Jaguars after suffering an apparent leg injury, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Aruna's right leg buckled under him while he was being blocked. He had to be helped by trainers to the cart, as he was unable to put weight on his leg. Expect an update on the sixth-round pick's status once the team provides more clarity on the issue.
