Vikings Training Camp Live 2016: Day 3 Walk-Thru

It is about to get physical like Olivia Newton-John at Vikings training camp today. Players will be practicing in full pads during practice later and the intensity should be pretty high.

The team has been experimenting with different combinations on the offensive line, wide receivers, and linebackers in each morning walk-thru of the past two days. It will be interesting to see if the shuffle continues this morning as Minnesota begins their third day of camp.

Join us below for updates!

10:25am – The players should be hitting the field shortly for the walk-thru and head coach Mike Zimmer is scheduled to speak to the media afterwards. Wonder if there will be any questions about Adrian Peterson and his hamstring?

10:30am – Players are beginning to hit the field and the team gets some positive news regarding defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis this morning.

10:45am – The players participating with the first team offensive line this morning seem to be back to the way they were on the team’s first day of camp. Disregarding any future injuries, the Vikings opening day linemen will likely be Matt Kalil, Alex Boone, John Sullivan, Brandon Fusco, and Andre Smith.

10:50am – The team revealed yesterday that running back Adrian Peterson suffered an injury to his hamstring while working out the week before camp. Peterson has been limited in camp so far as the team is not trying to rush back their franchise running back.

11:00amDaniel House of Vikings Corner thinks the Vikings will focus some of their afternoon practice on working in the red zone. Curious to see how the Vikings will involve some of their bigger targets like Kyle Rudolph, Charles Johnson, and Laquon Treadwell in their red zone plans.

11:10am – Seems as though Peterson is still participating in this morning’s activities despite the injury to his hamstring. However, wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson still remains on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

11:15am – The Vikings are looking like they will be sticking with Andrew Sendejo as their starting strong safety to open the season. But the competition for the backup safeties among Antone Exum, Anthony Harris, Jayron Kearse, and Michael Griffen has been pretty high at camp so far.

11:25am – Vikings ending their third walk-thru of training camp with some special teams drills. Practice begins around 2:45pm later today and should be very exciting considering the team will play in full pads for the first time this summer.

Join us here once again as we have full coverage of the Vikings afternoon practice!
