Vikings sign TE Reisner; OL Samuda injured

The Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday signed tight end Allen Reisner, who rejoins the team after spending the final week of the 2012 season and the entire 2013 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Originally signed by the Vikings as a rookie free agent in 2011, Reisner joined the Jaguars after being signed off the Vikings' practice squad on Dec. 24, 2012.

In 15 career appearances, Reisner has caught seven passes for 58 yards. Reisner has made three career starts, all coming during the 2013 season.

Meanwhile, offensive lineman Josh Samuda fractured and dislocated his ankle during Tuesday's voluntary workout, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported. Surgery is scheduled for Wednesday.

Samuda played for the Miami Dolphins in 2012 but did not play last season. He will likely spend the season on injured reserve.
