Adam Thielen WR MIN 5 Hrs

Theilen has made Minnesota's final 53-man roster, ESPN reports.

Theilen will likely begin the season as the No. 4 receiver while Jerome Simpson serves a three-game suspension. Theilen left the final preseason game with a hip injury, but it's thought to be minor.

Robert Blanton DB MIN 5 Hrs

With the release of Chris Crocker and placement of Jamarca Sanford on injured reserve, Blanton appears to have won the starting strong safety job.

Blanton was in competition with Crocker and Kurt Coleman for the starting job, but both were released. However, the Vikings have not made an official announcement.

Zach Line RB MIN 5 Hrs

Line (ankle) has made Minnesota's final 53-man roster, ESPN reports.

The Vikings surprisingly kept two fullbacks, so Line will likely have to active on special teams.

Kendall James DB MIN 5 Hrs

James was released by the Vikings, ESPN reports.

James, who was taken in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, is likely a candidate for the practice squad.

Chase Ford TE MIN 5 Hrs

Ford (foot) was released by the Vikings, ESPN reports.

He was as surprise cut as he caught 11 balls for 133 yards last season. Perhaps he wasn't back from the broken foot he suffered early in the preseason.

Chris Crocker DB MIN 5 Hrs

Crocker was released by the Vikings, ESPN reports.

It's a surprising move as he was seen as perhaps the leading candidate to start at strong safety. With Crocker released, Robert Blanton will likely begin the season as the starter at strong safety.

Kurt Coleman DB MIN 6 Hrs

Coleman was released by the Vikings, ESPN reports.

Coleman and Chris Crocker were surprise cuts as the Vikings kept younger players in the secondary.

Loucheiz Purifoy DB IND 6 Hrs

Purifoy has made Indy's 53-man roster as the Colts elected to keep four running backs, ESPN reports.

Purifoy had a strong preseason. He could find significant playing time in the secondary given that Greg Toler and LaRon Landry haven't been able to stay healthy.

Zurlon Tipton RB IND 6 Hrs3 Comments

Tipton has made Indy's 53-man roster as the Colts elected to keep four running backs, ESPN reports.

He's fourth on the depth chart and will likely be on the roster bubble early in the season. Still, it's possible he could find a role with Ahmad Bradshaw returning from a neck injury and Trent Bradshaw continuing to underwhelm.

Da'Rick Rogers WR IND 6 Hrs

Rogers has made Indy's 53-man roster as the Colts elected to keep six wide receivers, ESPN reports.

Rogers is likely sixth on the depth chart. He didn't have a great training camp and didn't help himself by adding to his maturity issues by receiving an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for kicking the ball into the stands after scoring a touchdown in the final preseason game. Still, Rogers has the size and talent to succeed in the NFL as he showed potential while recording 14 receptions for 192 yards and two touchdowns in just five games.
