Vikings Practice Today, Rookie MRI 12 Aug 13

The Minnesota Vikings got back on the practice field yesterday in Mankato and will do the same today as they prepare for preseason game number two this Friday at Buffalo.  The first preseason game was this past Friday and the Vikes came out on the losing end 27-13 to the Houston Texans at the Metrodome.

 Vikes Rookie MRI

 Minnesota rookie defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd had an MRI on Sunday on his left knee and feels confident there’s nothing to be worried about.  Floyd was hit low from behind in the second quarter of Friday’s preseason loss to Houston.  He told the AP yesterday that his MRI showd no damage and that he’s ready to resume practice whenever Leslie Fraizer and the rest of the Vikings staff are ready for him to get back in pads.  Floyd was on the field for Sunday’s walk-through and at the afternoon padded practice but did not participate.
