Vikings still quiet about Adrian Peterson in the preseason

MANKATO, Minn. — They’d be crazy to do it, right?

A season after Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran for 2,097 yards when coming off a torn ACL, MCL and zero preseason snaps, the Vikings are still keeping mum about whether or not he will play on Friday at the Buffalo Bills.

“We […]

Joe Webb’s quarterback history not playing a part in his evaluation

MANKATO, Minn. — As early as three months ago, Minnesota Vikings receiver Joe Webb still wasn’t sure what his position was after starting at quarterback in the Vikings’ playoff loss at Green Bay on Jan. 5.

After one preseason game, Webb played 12 snaps on offense with two receptions on three targets (11 yards) […]

Vikings rookie Xavier Rhodes healthy, ready to start ‘growing pains’

MANKATO, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes said he’s never had a hamstring injury in his football career.

There’s a first for everything, including when Rhodes takes the field for his NFL debut on Friday at the Buffalo Bills.

“I don’t try to stress it at all,” Rhodes told 1500ESPN.com on Tuesday. “When you […]

Safety Andrew Sendejo becoming a mainstay for Vikings’ special teams

MANKATO, Minn. — You might call Minnesota Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo a late bloomer.

After going undrafted in 2010, due in part to a high ankle sprain that required surgery and ended his senior season at Rice prematurely, Sendejo signed on as a street free agent with the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football […]

Frazier: Ponder & Co. will play into the 2nd quarter against Buffalo

MANKATO, Minn. — Opinions clashed as soon as Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder sat on the bench with less than one minute played in Friday’s preseason loss to the Houston Texans — some claiming Ponder should only play one series, others opining that the young quarterback needs the reps.

Coach Leslie Frazier made it clear […]

Greg Jennings embracing the mentor role with Cordarrelle Patterson

MANKATO, Minn. — Greg Jennings stood on the sidelines of Friday’s preseason opener, watching rookie receiver Cordarrelle Patterson rack up 104 all-purpose yards in the first half.

In his eighth NFL season, Jennings is a two-time Pro Bowler, a Super Bowl champion and has taken part in some of the league’s most dangerous passing attacks […]

Toby Gerhart to make most of preseason before free agency in 2014

MANKATO, Minn. — Statistically, Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart has less mileage during three NFL seasons than Adrian Peterson had during his triumphant run to winning league MVP last year.

That’s good for the Vikings, who need fresh legs to fill in for the few plays Peterson sits out in the regular season.

But […]

Joe Webb to debut as jack-of-all-trades in Vikings’ preseason opener

MANKATO, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings receiver Joe Webb can’t remember the last time he tackled somebody in a game.

“Last time I tackled […]
