Vikings waive undrafted free-agent signee Tyler Higby

The Vikings on Sunday waived guard Tyler Higby, one of 12 undrafted free agents they signed last April.

Higby, who played at Michigan State, had been on the reserve/COVID-19 list since July 27. The Vikings technically removed him from the list before he was waived.

The Vikings have two players still on the COVID-19 list. They are tackle Oli Udoh and linebacker Cameron Smith, who announced Saturday that a heart condition was detected after he tested positive for coronavirus and that he will undergo open-heart surgery and miss the season.

The Vikings are at the NFL limit of 80 players on the active roster.
