With Spencer Ware inactive, it leaves the Seahawks with no fullbacks. Coleman collapsed on the sideline after making a catch, and could be sidelined multiple weeks.

Vikings waived RB Derrick Coleman, LB Solomon Elimimian, WR Bryan Walters, WR A.J. Love, WR Kamar Jorden, WR Kerry Taylor, G/T Levi Horn, OT Bridger Buche, CB Corey Gatewood, DT Tydreke Powell, OG Grant Cook, LB Tyler Nielsen, CB Chris Stroud, DE Anthony Jacobs and DE Ernest Owusu.

An undrafted free agent out of UCLA, Coleman could take the ball just 50 yards on 19 preseason carries. Elimimian is a former CFL standout, but was slowed by a hamstring injury. A long-time practice-squad player in Chicago, Horn might be at the end of the line.
