Depth Takes a Hit for Vikings

With one walkthrough practice in the books and nearly two weeks of training camp ahead, the Minnesota Vikings are already struggling with depth. More concerning is the fact that the injuries impact positions where depth isn’t just important; it’s crucial to Minnesota’s 2016 success.

As announced on the team’s official website, the Vikings have officially placed Taylor Heinicke and Mike Harris on he Non-Football Injury/Remains on Active List. They’re joined on the sidelines by Kenrick Ellis and Rhett Ellison, who start training camp as members of the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Over the course of the last few weeks, Austin Belisle and myself have asked you to make predictions about how the Minnesota Vikings’ 2016 training camp will play out. Meanwhile, Adam Patrick compiled consensus rankings of the “Top 30” most important Vikings players of 2016, with help from 14 knowledgable Vikings writers. Below is the genesis of all that work.

We’ve used your votes, combined with the rankings, to try and assemble one of the most collaborative roster predictions you’ll be able to find anywhere.

Of course, a few questions remain despite the compilation of input, so Austin and I did our best to fill in the blanks. That leads us to our final installment of “10 Camp Questions” in which the tenth question for you, the readers of Vikings Territory, are invited to answer.

Football is back in Minnesota! Well, sort of.

Players made their way into the Vikings training camp facilities today at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Plenty of buzz was in the air as Minnesota prepares to repeat as NFC North division title holders in 2016.

On Monday morning, it was announced that longtime Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Phil Loadholt had decided to retire. With his retirement, Loadholt’s spot on the Vikings roster is presumably vacant.

Minnesota now has three openings on their roster before their total number reaches the NFL’s 90-man limit. The Vikings can decide to leave those spots empty before they start training camp later this week, but that would not be any fun would it?

Surprisingly enough, there are still plenty of talented free-agents available that could produce for Minnesota during the 2016 season.
