The Vikings had three seventh-round picks in the 2014 draft and two of them were involved in roster moves Tuesday.
Minnesota announced that cornerback Jabari Price has been placed on injured reserve and linebacker Brandon Watts has been promoted from the practice squad to take his place on the roster. Defensive tackle Shamar Stephen, the team’s third seventh-round pick from 2014, is already on injured reserve.
Price served a two-game suspension to start the season and has been dealing with a shoulder injury since returning, which left him without a regular season appearance in 2015. He played in 14 games and had 10 tackles last year.
Watts landed on the practice squad after failing to make the cut to 53 players in early September. He played two games with the team last year and recorded one tackle.
