The Vikings and Broncos will each play their 4th and final preseason game of 2010 tonight at Mall of America Field, with kickoff scheduled for 7:00 p.m. CT. The Vikings open the regular season next week at New Orleans and their starting lineups will look much different than the lineups for tonight’s game.
The Vikings 1st-team offense will rest tonight and the following players will take their place in the starting lineup: WR Taye Biddle, WR Greg Camarillo, LT Patrick Brown, LG Chris DeGeare, C Jon Cooper, RG Ryan Cook, RT Drew Radovich, TE Jeff Dugan, QB Tarvaris Jackson, FB Ryan D’Imperio and RB Albert Young.
Most of the Vikings starters on defense will rest as well. Jayme Mitchell and Brian Robison will start at DE, Fred Evans and Letroy Guion will each start at DT, Heath Farwell, Jasper Brinkley and Erin Henderson will start at LB, Asher Allen will start at CB for Antoine Winfield and Colt Anderson will start for Madieu Williams at S.
I’m guessing that Lito Sheppard and Tyrell Johnson will get the starts at CB and S, respectively.
CB Chris Cook and DT Jimmy Kennedy will not dress for the Vikings.
The starter changes for the Broncos are at LG, TE, NT and RCB, so it seems as if many of the Broncos starters will play tonight. That will provide the Vikings starters with a good challenge.
