Jaguars placed TE Allen Reisner on injured reserve/designated to return with a sprained MCL.

Reisner is expected to miss six weeks, but the Jags didn't want to mess around with making him a weekly inactive. It's to the point of the season where they might as well use their "return" tag on somebody. Reisner is a deep reserve. It's possible he'll never be activated.

Jaguars TE Allen Reisner is expected to miss six weeks with a sprained MCL.

The reserve tight end suffered the injury in Sunday's loss. With Marcedes Lewis (calf) also out for Week 6, the Jags will start Clay Harbor against the Broncos. Reisner has just five catches on the year.

The Jaguars are expected to start Allen Reisner at tight end in Week 1.

Marcedes Lewis (calf) has been ruled out against the Chiefs. Squaring off with OLBs Tamba Hali and Justin Houston, 6-foot-3, 248-pound Reisner figures to spend most of Sunday's opener helping the Jaguars' offensive tackles block.

Viking promoted TE Allen Reisner from their practice squad.

John Carlson (concussion) has been officially ruled out for Week 9. Reisner appeared in the Vikings' first three games with Jerome Simpson suspended. If active, he'll likely be limited to a special teams role.

Vikings waived TE Allen Reisner.

Signed from the practice squad in later November when both Kyle Rudolph and Visanthe Shiancoe were banged up, Reisner had been inactive each of the past three weeks. He tallied one catch in six total games this season.

Vikings promoted TE Allen Reisner from the practice squad.

It's the surest sign yet Kyle Rudolph (quad) won't be active against the Falcons. Reisner appeared in two games earlier this season, failing to make a catch. He could see a few snaps Sunday, but isn't likely to be targeted with Visanthe Shiancoe on track to play.

Vikings waived TE Allen Reisner.

Reisner was just promoted off the practice squad ahead of Week 2. The undrafted free agent out of Iowa is likely headed back there as long as he clears waivers.

Vikings promoted TE Allen Reisner from the practice squad.

Reisner was one of the Vikes' final cuts last week. His signing could be an indication that Visanthe Shiancoe's hamstring injury has acted up. If Reisner is active on Sunday, he won't show up on the stat-sheet.

Vikings waived TE Allen Reisner.

Undrafted out of Iowa, Reisner opened a few eyes with his reliable hands in training camp. If he clears waivers, the Vikings could try to develop him as an H-back type on the practice squad.
