Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said on Wednesday that he and his staff have yet to determine the amount of playing time the starters, as well as QBs Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels, will get on Friday in Indianapolis.
Most eyes will be on the QB position, where Jackson and Rosenfels have been splitting reps with the 1st team during offseason activities and training camp. Childress mentioned earlier in the week that whoever starts Friday’s game in Indianapolis will not start the team’s 2nd preseason game next week.
“I’d like the first two (Jackson and Rosenfels) to be equal in a perfect world,” Childress said when asked how much he’d like to see his QBs play on Friday. “The minute you pencil it in and say ‘well this guy’s going to play a quarter,’ you have one of those left-handed quarters where the offense is on the field for six plays and something happens and the defense plays thirty (play).”
Childress indicated he would feel it out with his coaches in determining when a certain player has played enough on Friday.
“To set it by quarters, you don’t really want to do that,” the head coach said. “I’ll know when I’ve seen enough from these guys without hamstringing myself with a number or a quarter.”
