King, Shuler promoted to 53-man roster

Posted by: Mark Craig under Roster moves, Vikings, NFC, Adrian Peterson Updated: December 26, 2011 - 3:15 PM

The Vikings just made four roster moves, placing Adrian Peterson on injured reserve, releasing tight end Allen Reisner and promoting tight end Mickey Shuler and running back Caleb King from the practice squad.

Reisner, an undrafted rookie, has one catch for 5 yards. He'll likely be re-signed to the practice squad, where he began the season. Shuler was a seventh-round draft pick of the Vikings last year. He was cut before the season and saw some action with the Dolphins in 2010. He was brought back this season as a free agent after being released by Miami.
