The Vikings announced four roster moves to cut their roster to the NFL-mandated 75 players by today’s deadline.

As expected, wide receiver Sidney Rice was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, meaning he will miss at least the first six weeks of the season after undergoing hip surgery.

The Vikings also waived linebacker J Leman, tackle Bill Noethlich and wide receiver Marko Mitchell.

The final cutdown deadline is Saturday afternoon.
