Vikings drop 15 players


The Turk was busy in Minnesota today.

The Vikings have made the move from 90 to 75 players, one day after a 12-10 preseason loss to the Chargers and two days before the mandatory deadline for making the first step toward the looming move to 53.

The following players -- all rookies and one- or two-year veterans -- have been waived: guard Bridger Buche, running back Derrick Coleman, guard Grant Cook, linebacker Soloman Elimimian, defensive back Corey Gatewood, tackle Levi Horn, defensive end Anthony Jacobs, receiver Kamar Jorden, receiver A.J. Love, linebacker Tyler Nielsen, defensive end Ernest Owusu, defensive tackle Tydreke Powell, cornerback Chris Stroud, receiver Kerry Taylor, and receiver Bryan Walters.

The Vikings previously had waived rookie receiver Greg Childs and rookie defensive back Nicholas Taylor, both of whom reverted to the team’s injured reserve list.
