The Minnesota Vikings announced Sunday they have released 11 players to bring their current roster to 78. Here's the list:

RB Joe Banyard

TE Brandon Bostick

CB Jalil Carter

CB Justin Coleman

WR DaVaris Daniels

T Stephen Goodin

LB Josh Kaddu

WR Jordan Leslie

DE Caesar Rayford

DT Chrishon Rose

CB DeMarcus Van Dyke

Banyard, 26, has been with the Vikings since 2012 when he joined the practice squad. He's seen a fair amount of action this preseason, and scored a touchdown Saturday night against the Cowboys, according to 1500ESPN.com.

Bostick, 26, joined the Vikings this offseason after he was released by the Green Bay Packers.

The team needs to cut three more players by 3 p.m. Tuesday to get down to the league-mandated 75-man roster. And it must be at 53 players by Saturday.

The Vikings are coming off their fourth preseason victory - a 28-14 win over the Cowboys Saturday night in Dallas. They have one more preseason game Thursday, against the Titans in Tennessee.

The team opens its regular season on Sept. 14 vs. the 49ers at San Francisco.
