The Minnesota Vikings first preseason game is only eight days away!

Vikings at Buffalo Bills. Thursday, August 10th @ 6pm CT

The Vikings have had six days of full team practices in Mankato. The good news is the team has avoided major injury, plus two playmakers on defense have been locked up long-term. The bad news is there have been minor, but potentially nagging injuries to report.

Let’s recap the team news that has come out of training camp since our last Loose Ends take.

Miss Start of Training Camp

In a move not totally unexpected, Latavius Murray and Sharrif Floyd will miss the start of Minnesota Vikings training camp. This morning, the team placed Murray on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and Floyd on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.

Joining Murray on the PUP is rookie linebacker Shaan Washington, who is sidelined with a leg injury he suffered during Vikings minicamp.  Murray declared himself healthy upon his arrival to Mankato yesterday, but the PUP designation is one likely out of precaution by Eric Sugarman and team doctors.

As for Floyd, he’s still working back from a potentially career-threatening nerve issue in his knee. When head coach Mike Zimmer spoke to the media yesterday, he told reporters he’s heard Floyd is “improved,” but wouldn’t offer any further insight.

Welcome to the latest installment of the Vikings Territory Training Camp Primer series focusing on Linval JosephSharrif Floyd and the Minnesota Vikings interior defensive linemen.

UPDATE: The Vikings signed DT Chunky Clements Friday and released DE Caleb Kidder.

As the Vikings open their last training camp in Mankato, they appear at-first-glance to be in pretty good shape along the defensive front. They have one of the best defensive tackles in football and employ a stable of talent for depth. However, there are still important questions to be answered. Like for instance, who is the starter next to Linval Joseph?

Vikings Training Camp Preview

In just 11 days, the Minnesota Vikings open training camp on the Minnesota State, Mankato campus. Rookie practices begin on Monday, July 24th and full team practices start Thursday, July 27th.

As usual, this time of year has brought optimism to the Vikings and their fans. But this year, things seem different. There’s good reason to be excited, as the offseason resulted in refreshing roster replacements, an influx of young talent, and a promising outlook on lovable quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

To recap the offseason moves, Minnesota added free agents Latavius Murray, Riley Reiff, Datone Jones, Michael Floyd, and Mike Remmers.
