The Minnesota Vikings kick off the preseason in less than an hour, when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers as part of the annual Hall of Fame Game. It’s an exciting night for fans around the country, and a chance for rookies and backups to prove their worth to the Vikings coaching staff.
A handful of Vikings, however, did not make the trip to Canton, Ohio. Earlier tonight, the team released a list of those who did not travel:
The following #Vikings did not travel: 8 G. Lutman 21 J. Robinson 55 A. Barr 61 J. Berger 66 D. Yankey 90 B.J. Dubose 95 S. Crichton

According to KFAN’s AJ Mansour, the starters will play just 8-12 snaps tonight, meaning we’ll only get a brief glimpse of Teddy Bridgewater and the rest of the team’s first-stringers tonight.
