The Vikings have waived linebacker Travis Lewis and defensive tackle Bruce Gaston following this week’s minicamp. Both players have been injured and did not participate in practice at all this week.
The Vikings signed Lewis, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year, $810,000 deal in March. They saw him as a potential special-teams player and backup, but he was sidelined throughout the spring with an undisclosed injury.
Gaston was added a couple of weeks ago and quickly suffered an injury.
Today’s moves open up two roster spots heading into training camp.
