Mike Zimmer said Monday the Vikings were still collecting the facts before making a decision regarding Isame Faciane’s stance with the team.
A day later, Faciane was released from the team’s practice squad. The Vikings re-signed cornerback Tre Roberson to take his place.
Faciane, 25, was charged with three misdemeanors, including driving while intoxicated, after he was arrested early Wednesday morning. According to the police report, Faciane illegally entered a construction zone in St. Louis Park and attempted to exit the wrong way down a ramp. He was pulled over and registered a 0.13 BAC.
Faciane originally joined the Vikings in 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of Florida International. His arrest was the Vikings’ first known off-field incident since Dec. 2014 as the franchise has worked to clean up its image under Zimmer.
Roberson, a converted college quarterback, has been re-signed to the Vikings practice squad for the third time this season. He was most recently released Oct. 5.
