Minnesota Vikings tight end Josiah Price will miss the 2018 season after sustaining a right knee injury, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin.
The injury occurred during passing drills late in Wednesday's practice. Price was carted off the field shortly afterwards.
Price had one reception for 9 yards in the first preseason game at Denver.
Undrafted in 2017, Price has been waived twice by the Vikings in the past year.
He first was signed in May 2017 by Minnesota after being undrafted that same year out of Michigan State—Price holds the Spartan career TD receptions record by a tight end (21). He spent the 2017 preseason with the Vikings before being cut in September before the regular season.
In late March of this year, Price announced on Twitter that Minnesota had resigned him to a one-year deal. He was released on July 24th so the team could make room for J.P. Quinn (a transaction which created $3,334 in dead money owed to Price) once it became clear Pat Elflein would miss several training camp practices and the team needed camp linemen.
The Vikings resigned Price on July 28th after waiving offensive lineman Chris Gonzalez, and currently have Price on contract for $480,000 for 2018.
On Thursday afternoon, Price tweeted out:
