Love Returns To The Timberwolves With An Edge

Kevin Love showed up for the start of Minnesota Timberwolves training camp eager to put last season behind him, and it’s hard to blame him. Love played in only 18 games last season because of a right hand that was broken twice and a minor knee injury. Some fans turned on him as well, so Love threw himself into a rigorous training regimen this summer and comes back with something to prove.

The Vikings are already missing starting fullback Jerome Felton, who is serving the final game of a three-game suspension stemming from a DUI arrest two years ago. Coach Leslie Frazier says the Vikings will lean on rookie Zach Line and veteran tight end John Carlson. Line is a converted running back still learning the position.
