EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings are preparing for their final game of the preseason, and yet they’re still looking for some reliable targets opposite star receiver Percy Harvin.

Speedster Jerome Simpson displayed plenty of promise in training camp and the first two preseason games. But he will miss the first three weeks of the regular season and no one in the rest of the receiver corps has yet to distinguish himself.

That’s why coach Leslie Frazier says the finale at Houston on Thursday is so important. Stephen Burton, Devin Aromashodu, Jarius Wright and Manny Arcenaux are going to get the bulk of the action against the Texans.

Frazier says the coaching staff wants to see some big plays from someone in that group to help solidify their roster spot.
