With safety Andrew Sendejo eligible to return to the Minnesota Vikings, the team has waived offensive lineman Cornelius Edison to create a roster spot.

The Minnesota Vikings were without safety Andrew Sendejo during Week 8 of the 2017 NFL season due to a one-game suspension handed down from a hit on Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace the previous week.

Since suspended players don’t count against the roster limit for NFL teams, Minnesota promoted offensive lineman Cornelius Edison to the 53-man roster from the practice squad since they were already without left guard Nick Easton and backup Jeremiah Sirles was dealing with an injury.

Edison’s services were not needed during the Vikings 33-16 victory over the Cleveland Browns in the United Kingdom. However, Minnesota announced on their official website that the center was waived from the team on Monday, October 30, 2017.

More from The Viking Age

The reason for Edison being waived is because Andrew Sendejo was eligible to return to the team following his one-week suspension. In order to add him to the active roster again, the transaction was necessary.

Odds are that Minnesota is hoping that Edison clears waivers and can return to the practice squad. Since he was promoted, it does show that they want to see more from the young man and reward him for his efforts to this point.

Meanwhile, The Vikings are entering their bye week in Week 9. After the break, Andrew Sendejo will return to the starting lineup for Week 10 against the Washington Redskins on the road.

As usual, we at The Viking Age would like to wish nothing but the best for Cornelius Edison going forward and hope that he can return to the practice squad for the Minnesota Vikings. Also, we welcome safety Andrew Sendejo back to the active roster.
