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.

@CourtneyRCronin

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.
