Vikings Release Forbath, Place Aruna on IR, Announce Other Moves

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings made a handful of roster moves on Monday, including the release of kicker Kai Forbath.

Forbath, who had been with the Vikings since November of 2016, made 47 of his 53 career field goals with Minnesota. He was 45 on 53 extra points during that time.

Forbath had been battling rookie kicker Daniel Carlson for the starting job. Forbath made one of two field goal attempts against the Jaguars, making a 44-yard try but hitting the right upright on a 41-yard try.

Carlson was a fifth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Auburn.

Minnesota also placed defensive end Ade Aruna on Injured Reserve. Aruna, a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, was injured in Saturday's preseason game against Jacksonville.

The Vikings also waived offensive lineman Cedrick Lang, tight end Josiah Price and fullback Johnny Stanton with injury designations.

Lang and Stanton were injured Saturday against the Jaguars, while Price was injured last week in a joint practice with Jacksonville.
