Too bad for Hercules, he seemed like he had a decent chance at the practice squad. I did read that it was less severe than 90% of ACL tears so some silver lining. So what happens now, do we get to stash him on IR for the season?

I think he has to clear waivers first but then yes.

The Vikings placed rookie DE Hercules Mata’afa on injured reserve due to a new league rule that allowed the team to put him on IR without having to clear waivers first. Roster is at 90 after the addition of Mike Needham yesterday.

Wasn't aware of the new league rule. But either way, glad we were able to hang onto him
