Lang was released by the Patriots on Friday, Doug Kyed of NESN reports.
Analysis: Lang spent the entirety of last season on injured reserve with a lower leg injury has yet to make his NFL debut at the age of 26. If he clears waivers, the Patriots will decide if they want to invite Lang onto their practice squad or not.
Lang signed a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Lang spent all of last season on the Vikings' injured reserve list due to a lower-leg injury, and previously spent all of 2017 on Minnesota's practice squad. The 26-year-old has yet to make his NFL debut, and projects to play a depth role on the Patriots' offensive line if he earns a spot on the 53-man roster.
The Vikings will not extend a tender to Lang, making him an unrestricted free agent, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Lang sustained a season-ending lower leg injury during last year's preseason, and spent all of 2018 on Minnesota's injured reserve. The 26-year-old guard will now look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Lang (lower leg) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Lang will require season-ending surgery, so even if an injury settlement is reached, his focus will shift to the 2019 campaign. The Vikings will look for additional linemen to back up Tom Compton.
The Vikings waived/injured Lang (lower leg) on Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: This move is no surprise after Lang suffered a season-ending surgery during Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars. Lang's loss leaves the Vikings struggling with depth behind starter Tom Compton. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to the Vikings' injured reserve.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer ruled Lang (leg) out for the season following Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Lang, who was carted off the field with an air cast on his right leg Saturday, failed to avoid a serious injury as he'll lose his 2018 season. Fellow guard Josh Andrews also left Saturday's tilt with a leg injury, leaving the Vikings extremely thin up front behind starter Tom Compton.
Lang sported an air cast on his right leg as he was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: An air cast is certainly not a good sign, especially with the Vikings losing lineman Josh Andrews earlier in the game. More information on his status will likely be released after he undergoes some tests.
