Vikings put rookie LB Dye (foot) on IR, sign LB Davis

Minnesota Vikings rookie Troy Dye, who was set to make his first start at linebacker this weekend, was put on injured reserve with a foot sprain on Thursday, the team announced.

The Vikings (0-2) signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Todd Davis, who is expected to see immediate action Sunday versus the visiting Tennessee Titans (2-0).

Dye, a fourth-round pick out of Oregon in this years’ draft, was slated to get the start in place of Anthony Barr. Barr was put on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. Dye played 34 snaps on special teams in two games this season, and 21 on defense.

Davis, 28, was cut by Denver earlier this month in a cap move.

Davis played in 82 games (63 starts) for the Broncos, culminating with a career-high 134 tackles last season in 14 games. Davis played in three games with the New Orleans Saints in 2014.
