Aruna (knee) expects to be ready for offseason workouts, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Aruna is also reportedly walking without issue following offseason surgery. The sixth-round pick will spend his entire rookie season on injured reserve, but it appears the knee injury will not impact his long-term NFL career.
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 is dealing with a knee injury after being carted off the field during Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
The severity of Aruna's injury remains unclear, but he could be looking at a potentially serious knee issue. He was unlikely to make much of an impact at defensive end behind Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffin (leg), but the Vikings could miss his depth in Week 3 of the preseason and beyond.
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.
