We have arrived in Cleveland on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in advance of Sunday’s season opener. After settling into my hotel room I browsed around the internet to get the latest NFL scoop and read a report from the St. Paul Pioneer Press about the Vikings backup QB situation.
Specifically, Sean Jensen is reporting that Tarvaris Jackson will be called upon to backup starting QB Brett Favre in tomorrow’s season opener against the Browns. Jensen cites a “person with knowledge of the situation” (“person with knowledge of the situation” seems to get the scoop on every story!).
vikings.com has not spoken to anyone regarding the situation and cannot confirm the development. Ultimately, we’ll know unequivocally who the backup is going to be for tomorrow’s game 90 minutes prior to kickoff, when both the Vikings and Browns will be required to disclose their 45-man active roster and 3rd (emergency) QB.
Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said earlier this week that the team’s backup QB could change from week to week.
