Cornerback Derek Cox did not make it through the first round of cuts with the Minnesota Vikings this preseason.

The Vikings announced that Cox and 12 other players were cut on Monday. The other players waived were S Brandan Bishop, OT Pierce Burton, CB Derek Cox, WR Andy Cruse, WR Kamar Jorden, WR Erik Lora, OT Kevin Murphy, DT Kheeston Randall, DE Tyler Scott, DE Jake Snyder, TE Kory Sperry, CB Robert Steeples and WR Ty Walker.

The Vikings also waived-injured safety Mistral Raymond. If he clears waivers, he will revert to Minnesota's injured reserve list.

Minnesota also activated tight end Chase Ford from the physically unable to perform list. He will now count toward Minnesota's roster total.
