Minneapolis, MN - One day after trimming their roster down to 53-men, the Minnesota Vikings were able to reclaim a handful of them and fill their practice squad with 9 players.

Joe Banyard, Kain Colter, Isame Faciane, Chase Ford, Donte Foster, Kendall James, Zac Kerin, Mike Remmers and Justin Trattou were all with the Vikings during training camp and have accepted offers to join the team as members of the 2014 Practice Squad.

Scouring the waiver wire for other players released around the league, the Vikings also claimed TE/FB hybrid and former Minnesota Golden Gopher quarterback MarQueis Gray and UCLA Tackle Mike Harris off of waivers. To make room for Gray and Harris the team has released LB Larry Dean and T Austin Wentworth.
