Josiah Price: Hitting open market

The Vikings will not extend a tender to Price, making him an unrestricted free agent, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Price sat out the entire 2018 season after sustaining a knee injury during the preseason. Since going undrafted out of Michigan State in 2017, the tight end has yet to make an NFL 53-man roster.

Josiah Price: Lands on IR

Price (knee) cleared waivers Tuesday and was placed on injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Price has a season-ending injury so he'll remain on IR unless an injury settlement is reached. The 25-year-old's absence may affect the Vikings depth for the final two preseason games, but he wasn't expected to make the 53-man roster.

Josiah Price: Placed on waivers Monday

The Vikings waived/injured Price (knee) on Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Price was carted off the practice field last week and was later deemed out for the season. If he clears waivers, Price will revert to the Vikings' injured reserve, where he'll stay for the 2018 season unless an injury settlement is reached. The fantasy effects of this injury are negligible, as he was a long shot to make the squad anyway.

Josiah Price: Out for season

Price (knee) will be out for the remainder of the season, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Price was carted off the Vikings practice injury with a right knee injury Wednesday. Though the specifics of the injury are unclear, he'll likely move to IR in the near future, where he'll spend the remainder of the 2018 campaign. A depth tight end, Price's injury shouldn't have much impact on the Vikings offense, though there will be more reps to go around for Tyler Hoppes and Blake Bell (leg).

Josiah Price: Carted off practice field

Price was carted off the practice field Wednesday with an apparent injury to his right knee, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Price couldn't put any weight on his leg after going down in a passing drill. While the extent of his injury remains to be seen, it sounds like the second-year tight end could be dealing with a severe injury.
