With 2010 Verizon Vikings Training Camp now in the books, I’ve checked out of my dorm room and made the return trek from Mankato to home. The team will do the same later today and then hop on a flight to St. Louis for preseason game #1 against the Rams at 7:00 p.m. CT Saturday evening.
A friend of mine is getting married on Saturday and therefore I will not make this trip, but Ryan and the boys will have you covered from St. Louis. Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress’ press conference will be streamed live here after the game and Ryan will be with you during the game, providing constant updates and overseeing the in-game elements of vikings.com.
The Vikings will return home last Saturday night and then get back into the swing of things on Sunday and Monday. Although we’ve left Mankato for the year, training camp resumes on Monday as the Vikings continue to shape their roster for the 2010 season. vikings.com will continue to be a great source for training camp/Vikings coverage.
By the way, there is a report from the Star Tribune’s Judd Zulgad that the Vikings have received a roster exemption for WR Percy Harvin, who left in the early days of training camp upon news that his Grandmother had passed away and didn’t return. Harvin has also been experiencing migraines since leaving camp.
Harvin has been placed on the “left squad” list, which exempts him from the roster and allows the Vikings to sign another player to fill the space until Harvin is able to return to the club. No word yet on if the Vikings will add someone to the roster.
That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more news when it happens. Also, remember to follow the Vikings on Twitter. Our official account is @VikingsFootball.
