The Minnesota Vikings broke camp one last time for 2014 yesterday from Mankato. Head coach Mike Zimmer intends to remain in camp mode next week at Winter Park. Zimmer says “Mankato, the city, the fans have been coming out and cheering us on and it has been great for us.” The Vikes host the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow from TCF Bank Stadium at 7:30. Coverage begins at 6:30pm on SAM 107.3.
Vikings starting quarterback Matt Cassel could be in line for extra reps against the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow. Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer says there is a “chance” Cassel plays the entire first-half against Arizona. Cassel went 5-for-6 for 62 yards during the opening drive against the Raiders on Friday. Kickoff from TCF Bank Stadium is at 7:30.
Adrian Peterson won’t take the field for the Minnesota Vikings in their second preseason game this Saturday. First-year Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer says Peterson won’t play when they host the Arizona Cardinals. Zimmer tells reporters there is “nothing to see” from the six-time Pro Bowler this preseason. “All Day” already sat out the Vikes’ first preseason game against the Oakland Raiders and may not play at all this exhibition season.
