Cordarrelle Patterson and Captain Munnerlyn made their training camp debuts for the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday after missing the first four days with injuries. Munnerlyn, the free agent cornerback from Carolina, was activated from the physically unable to perform list.
Captain Munnerlyn started his first training camp with the Minnesota Vikings away from the action and on the sideline, placed on the physically unable to perform list so he could work his way through a minor hamstring injury.
The Minnesota Vikings have placed cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, safety Andrew Sendejo and tight end Chase Ford on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp. The other player held out of the first full practice on Friday was wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who watched wearing a bucket-shaped fishing hat because of a minor foot injury. The team announced his status as day to day.
It’s the first official day of training camp for the Minnesota Vikings in Mankato, and the front office has already been busy with a series of roster moves. The Vikings announced Friday they’ve waived wide receiver Josh Cooper and tackle Matt Hall.
A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with cornerback Captain Munnerlyn on a three-year deal.
The Minnesota Vikings are in the heat of the playoff chase, but they also need to think about the future. The Vikings need to make a decision on several free agents and how to improve several areas.
