Wednesday Injury Report

The Vikings injury report is not quite as scary as it was last week. Percy Harvin did not particpate after being out for a week due to migraines.  He was present for the walk-through, however. Limited in practice were Bernard Berrian (hamstring), Cedric Griffin (neck), Steve Hutchinson (shoulder), Tyrell Johnson (concussion), Phil Loadholt (shoulder), Karl […]

Rookie Doesn’t Secure Starting Role

On Sunday, all of the Vikings faithful were keeping one eye on Jasper Brinkley at all times to see how he would do in the starting lineup. Even with one eye on E.J. Henderson’s replacement, it was hard not to notice seventh round pick Jamarca Sanford flying around and making plays as he replaced second […]

Friday Injury Report

Here is what is on the injury report on this fine Friday:   DOUBTFUL:  Tyrell Johnson (concussion) QUESTIONABLE:  Cedric Griffin (neck), Percy Harvin (illness), Phil Loadholt (shoulder), Karl Paymah (knee), and Antoine Winfield (foot) PROBABLE:  Bernard Berrian (hamstring), Brett Favre (not injury related), Adrian Peterson (foot, ankle), Visanthe Shiancoe (ribs), Steve Hutchinson (shoulder), Bryant McKinnie […]

So If You HAD To Choose

Let’s face it, if the Lions upset the Vikings this Sunday then that would hurt two-fold.  The first pain would come in realizing we just lost a game that we were supposed to win by six thousand points.  The second pain would come from realizing that the Lions just exposed our weakest links and that […]

More Preseason Thoughts

Overall, the Vikings first preseason game on Friday had a lot of things to get excited about.  The defense dominated and the offense thrived under Sage Rosenfels. ROSENFELS Rosenfels showed great composure, even when the pressure was on.  Robert Mathis beat Visanthe Shiancoe once and then he beat Phil Loadholt just a few moments later.  Rosenfels […]

Approaching The Draft: Safety

This is the last of my “Approaching The Draft” segements, but soon I will compile them together as a complete position-by-position Vikings draft guide. CURRENT STATUS: I think that it is ridiculous that safety isn’t thought of as a bigger need for the Vikings. Madieu Williams was a solid free agent pickup last year, but […]

Sharper Done as a Viking?

From: Pioneer Press Starting strong safety Darren Sharper is a free agent, but the Vikings appear to have his replacement lined up in Tyrell Johnson, drafted in the second round last April. Johnson was solid when he started the first seven games of the season at free safety while filling in for injured Madieu Williams.

Vikings Sign Three Remaning Draft Picks

The Vikings signed their remaining three draft picks, including their top choice, safety Tyrell Johnson. Along with Johnson, a second-rounder, fifth-round selection quarterback John David Booty and sixth-round selection center John Sullivan also signed. Out of Arkansas State, Johnson was named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year last season while earning first-team All-Sun […]

Purple Picks Still Not Under Contract

Vikings officials say they’re getting closer to signing their draft picks.  The team and agents for the draftees exchanged contract proposals yesterday.  With players reporting to Mankato tomorrow for training camp, the Vikings have yet to sign any of their five draft picks. Their top selection was at number 43 overall was Tyrell Johnson, who […]
