Vikings sign TE to practice squad, cut Sherels

Posted by: under Vikings, Lions, Cedric Griffin, Vikings roster moves Updated: September 29, 2010 - 1:05 AM

The Vikings made a minor move on Tuesday night, signing tight end John Nalbone to the practice squad and releasing cornerback and former Gopher Marcus Sherels from the same unit. The move was first reported by Adam Caplan of Fox Sports.

Nalbone,6-4, 255 pounds, was a fifth-round pick out of Monmouth by the Miami Dolphins in 2009.

He was active for two games with the Dolphins this season but was waived shortly before Miami claimed Mickey Shuler off waivers from the Vikings this month. The Vikings were hoping to get Shuler through waivers so they could sign him to their practice squad.

The Vikings let go of Sherels after both Cedric Griffin and Chris Cook returned from knee injuries. Both played in Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions.
