Minnesota had just recently promoted Iloka to the active roster, but the veteran tore his ACL in practice Wednesday, per Andrew Krammer. He’ll miss the remainder of the season.
Iloka, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed when the Bengals elected to cut him loose during the preseason.
The Vikings later signed Iloka to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $790,000. After becoming a free agent in 2019, Iloka signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Cowboys last year. However, Dallas released him coming out of the preseason.
Iloka wound up sitting out the 2019 season. He signed on with the Vikings’ practice squad last month and has been on and off of their active roster.
So far this season, Iloka has appeared in two games and recorded six tackles.
