Vikings place LS McDermott on IR, sign C Edison off practice squad

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have placed long snapper Kevin McDermott on injured reserve, forcing them to break in a new specialist right before the playoffs.

The move was made Saturday, making room on the active roster to promote practice squad center Cornelius Edison. McDermott hurt his shoulder on Dec. 23 at Green Bay, and backup tight end David Morgan stepped in as the emergency long snapper against the Packers.

The Vikings signed Jeff Overbaugh earlier this week for the final regular-season game against Chicago, but now Overbaugh will have the job for the postseason, too. Overbaugh went undrafted last year out of San Diego State and has not appeared in a regular-season game. He has had stints with the Los Angeles Rams, Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears.
