The Vikings are expected to announce their practice squad on Sunday afternoon, a time for many of Saturday's waived players to return.
Here we go again.
While yesterday was a time for players on the fringe to see their NFL dreams hit a major bump in the road, Sunday is a day for redemption.
Just as teams had to submit their list of cuts to the league by 5 p.m. Central Saturday, once the 24-hour waiver period passes, they will have the chance to re-sign players to the eight-man practice squad.
The Vikings are hoping John David Booty
makes it through the waiver process, which backfired on the team a couple of years ago when the same ploy was tried with Tyler Thigpen
and failed when the Chiefs made a waiver claim.
If a team claims a player off of waivers, he must be placed on the 53-man roster and remain there. If things don't work out, the player must be released rather than placed on their practice squad.
Erin Henderson is expected to miss about four weeks after suffering a leg injury in Friday's game against the Cowboys. During a kickoff return, Henderson went down grabbing his leg and remained on the turf for a couple of minutes before limping off on his own power.
Brooks Bollinger, who was recently signed by the Lions as a stop-gap due to QB injuries, was one of Detroit's final cuts Saturday.
Glenn Holt didn't last long with Detroit either, being cut Saturday as the team trimmed its roster, which include a slew of outside help brought in to compete during the preseason.
Jesse Holley, the Cowboys wide receiver who won a spot on the training camp roster by winning Michael Irvin's reality show, was among the Dallas cuts Saturday.
Casper Brinkley, the twin brother of Vikings LB Jasper Brinkley, was cut by the Panthers Saturday.
Robert Ferguson's comeback bid came to an end Saturday when he was released by the Falcons.
Brian Brohm, who just two years ago was rumored to potentially be a first-round draft pick, was cut by the Packers Saturday.
The Seahawks made a deal to add talent to the roster and it came with a price, the release of former Vikings safety Brian Russell.
Former Vikings center Melvin Fowler was among the cuts made by the Arizona Cardinals Saturday.
Vinny Ciurciu's run with the Patriots didn't last long. He was one of New England's initial batch of cuts Friday.
