Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson was back on the practice field working with his teammates during this morning’s practice. He continues to recover from a knee injury suffered a few days back and looked solid while participating in individual, position, group and team drills.
Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell met with the media following this morning’s practice and he said Jackson looked fine. Asked when Jackon would be back practicing with the team full-time, Bevell deferred head coach Brad Childress and the training staff.
Today’s work involved 2-minute situations and a few more 3rd down scenarios. Bevell said the team is “competing hard and doing a nice job” but also that there are “still some wheels spinning in those minds.”
A few highlights from this morning’s action included an interception in the endzone by S Husain Abdullah and then 2 solid rushes in 3 plays from DEs Jared Allen and Ray Edwards.
The Vikings will work for a little more than an hour this afternoon and then head back for meetings. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is in Mankato right now as part of his “Mort Goes To Camp” tour. He filmed bits with P Chris Kluwe, coach Childress, and also a group comprised of Jared Allen, Heath Farwell and Chad Greenway. Some very funny stuff was produced and you’ll be able to see it on tonight’s SportsCenter.
