The Vikings returned from their bye week on Monday and went right to the practice field as they get set to resume their 2010 regular season schedule.
Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress expects his coaches and players to get away and freshen up their minds during the bye. But what does he expect from them as they return to work?
“It’s important that they have a fresh attitude, fresh outlook and that they come out here and don’t forget everything they knew before the bye,” Childress explained to reporters after his team’s practice. “I thought we had a pretty crisp practice today, just kind of getting back in the saddle. I just look for them to come back with the right mindset, come back ready to work, come back ready to improve, not to come back and just hang out. We’ve got work to do.”
Childress said the Vikings would be back at Winter Park practicing tomorrow and then the players would have their day off on Wednesday. The normal schedule of Wednesday being the beginning of the work week for the team is pushed back a day because the Vikings next game is on Monday night. That means Thursday will be a typical Wednesday, with Childress and QB Brett Favre holding their press conferences after practice, and then Friday will be a normal Thursday, and so on.
There’s not a whole lot to update injury-wise. WR Percy Harvin told reporters after practice that this is the healthiest he’s felt in a long time and Childress said TE Visanthe Shiancoe and C John Sullivan stayed around the facility during the bye to treat their injuries; he said both players are making progress.
