The Vikings placed one player on injured reserve, ending his season, and released others Monday as they pared their roster to the NFL-mandated 65 players.
Safety Dustin Fox, a third-round draft choice out of Ohio State, was placed on injured reserve after fracturing his arm at training camp.
They released wide receivers Daryl Jones and Siaha Burley, safeties Ben Nelson and Rushen Jones, linebacker Maurice Jones, center Kyle Schmitt, defensive tackles Eric Coleman and David Harley and tackle Rian Melander.
NFL rosters must be trimmed to 53 players by Sept. 5.
