Two experts stop by to talk Vikings and Twins with Mark Rosen.
It’s now been more than a full week for the Minnesota Vikings at training camp in Mankato. The team got its first real test of competition with a passing scrimmage Saturday night at Blakeslee Stadium. The Vikings will have their first preseason game on Friday at the Metrodome as they host the Houston Texans.
Minnesota Vikings training camp is underway in Mankato and a lot of eyes will be on quarterback Christian Ponder over the next several weeks. Ponder was behind center for a team that finished 10-6 last season and made the playoffs, but much of the credit went to running back Adrian Peterson, who had an incredible season coming off major knee surgery.
The summer is officially over, at least for players and team officials with the Minnesota Vikings. The team reported to Minnesota State University, Mankato, for training camp on Thursday and held its first practice on Friday.
Training camp won’t be the same — and neither will Minnesota State, Mankato — after Gage Hall is destroyed Saturday. It’s been home to students and the Vikings during training camp.
