Purple FTW! Podcast: Law & Vikings Organized Team Activities (ep. 374) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings were back in town this week to start the first of three sets of Organized Team Activities before mid-June’s mandatory mini-camp. Tuesday’s practice lit #VikingsTwitter ablaze with video of Teddy Bridgewater taking snaps. I pontificate about that along with several other OTA talkers. Later in the show, we bring in Joshua Johnson (@DFF_Cog) of Dynasty Football Factory to talk some fantasy implications about the young Vikes. Plus a clip of Matt Vensel (@MattVensel) of the Star Tribune and I chatting about Mike Zimmer’s absence from OTAs due to his 8th eye surgery and both his short and long-term prospects with the team.

All that and more “Breath. It’s Just OTAs.” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Vikings entered the offseason with their fanbase in a panic.

Adrian Peterson had a potentially career altering knee injury that left a lot of uncertainty, and backup running back Toby Gerhart had an MCL injury that had many wondering how effective the Vikings running game would be in 2012.

Peterson put some minds at ease this week by putting forward a positive message regarding his rehab, and it sounds like he is already ahead of schedule.

Meanwhile, Tom Peslissero reports that Gerhart has returned from his Hawaiian vacation and the evaluation of his MCL is such that surgery will not be required.  It has been determined that rehabilitation and rest will be the appropriate remedy for his injury.

Peterson has also entered the rehabilitation phase, following his surgery, and it sounds like he is determined to commit to the process 100%.  One potential problem, however, is that the Vikings are assumed to want their $100 million running back rehabbing in Minnesota at Winter Park where they can keep an eye on him, but it appears Peterson may have different plans.  Judd Zulgad has more details on this pseudo-story.
