Vikings Release RB Ridley, To Add WR Floyd To Roster

CHICAGO (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have released running back Stevan Ridley after only five days with the team, making room on the active roster for wide receiver Michael Floyd.

The move was made Monday before the game in Chicago, with Floyd finished with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. This gives the Vikings seven wide receivers and only three running backs, including fullback C.J. Ham. Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon are left to carry the ball, after a season-ending knee injury for rookie Dalvin Cook.

Ridley, a six-year veteran, rushed for 1,263 yards and 12 touchdowns for New England in 2012 before a season-ending knee injury in 2014. He has bounced around the league since then.
