The Minnesota Vikings signed tight end Chase Ford off the practice squad on Saturday and released defensive end Justin Trattou.
This is a reversal of a move made earlier this week when the Vikings cut Ford and re-signed Trattou as rumors swirled that the Vikings might trade defensive end Jared Allen.
Ford offers depth behind Kyle Rudolph and John Carlson with Rhett Ellison (ankle) out this week.
Ford signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami last year and spent time on the Dallas practice squad as well.
Trattou played in five games with the Giants earlier this season before New York released him and the Vikings signed him.
