The Vikings announced a roster move Sunday, releasing running back Kahlil Bell and signing tight end Jake Nordin.
Bell became expendable thanks to the strong training camps of running backs Albert Young and Ian Johnson. Bell, an undrafted free agent from UCLA, had three rushes for 14 yards against the Colts Friday night but had spent much of training camp sidelined with an ankle injury.
Nordin is a 25-year old tight end who is a native of Lake Lillian, Minn. He played his college ball at Northern Illinois and has bounced around the league, having played with the Patriots, Redskins, Giants, Ravens and Lions in his two years in the NFL.
TE Garrett Mills was injured last week in training camp and was seen outside the Minnesota State-Mankato locker room with his arm in a sling.
