Blake Proehl: Cut by Minnesota
The Vikings waived Proehl on Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Vikings' Blake Proehl: Returns to active roster
Proehl (knee) was activated from the reserve/PUP list Monday.

The undrafted wideout was then designated to return Oct. 5, and he will now be eligible to make his NFL debut starting with Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Proehl missed the entirety of his rookie campaign after tearing his ACL in training camp last year, and he should slot in near the bottom of Minnesota's depth chart alongside wideouts Jalen Nailor and Jalen Reagor....

Vikings' Blake Proehl: Returns to practice Wednesday
Proehl (knee) was designated to return from the PUP list and returned to practice Wednesday, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.
Proehl missed the entire 2021 campaign after tearing his ACL during training camp last season. He started the 2022 season on the PUP list, which sidelined him for the first four games, but he's returned to practice at the earliest possible time. Regardless, the wideout likely still has a few hurdles to clear before he'll be ready for game action. His participation in practice starts a 21-day window for him to be added to the active roster, but he if he isn't, he'll revert back to the PUP list for the remainder of the campaign.... See More ...

Vikings' Blake Proehl: On PUP list
Proehl (knee) was placed on Minnesota's active/PUP list Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Proehl suffered a torn ACL during last year's training camp, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he still needs some time to recover before returning to practice.

Vikings' Blake Proehl: Carted off Wednesday
Proehl was carted off the practice field Wednesday due to what appears to be a serious leg injury, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.
Proehl drew strong reviews during June minicamp, and he logged an impressive practice Saturday. Prior to his injury, the undrafted rookie out of East Carolina appeared to be making a fair case for a spot on the 53-man roster. The Vikings will likely have Proehl undergo further medical evaluations before offering an official update on the severity of his injury.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Blake Proehl: Draws praise in workouts
Proehl drew praise from head coach Mike Zimmer during spring workouts, who noted it's "really hard to tell" who will win the third receiver role, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Proehl, an undrafted free agent, had a strong season with East Carolina in 2020, racking up 47 catches for 577 yards and four touchdowns across nine games. He'll compete with Chad Beebe, Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Bisi Johnson, Whop Philyor and several others in what looks to be a wide open competition for the No. 3 and No. 4 receiver roles. However, the No. 3 receiver has had little impact in the offense during the Zimmer era.... See More ... See Less
