Vikings' run game remains a 'work in progress,' Zimmer says

Attrition, though not as devastating as last year, has presented an early challenge to the Vikings’ plans of rolling out a retooled and improved offense. There remains 2.5 weeks before the regular season opener, and kinks are still being worked out. There’s a chance all 11 starters won’t be on the field together until then. Guard Brandon Fusco returned to practice from an undisclosed injury this week and is expected to make his preseason debut Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Just as left tackle Matt Kalil, who has drawn praise from head coach Mike Zimmer this summer, has had to bow out of...

Tim Tebow to work out for Twins, other MLB teams next week

ESPN reported early Tuesday that Tim Tebow will work out for MLB teams next week in Los Angeles. And our own La Velle E. Neal checks in from a day off to report that the Twins have two scouts in the area — and that one or both are expected to attend the workout. That would put the Twins in the majority, since ESPN also reports there are expected to be more than 20 MLB teams represented. So if you’re a Twins fan who loves Tebow, don’t get your hopes up — at least for now. And if you’re a Twins fan who doesn’t love Tebow (or side shows), don’t worry — at least for now. The more...

Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill return -- throwing -- to Vikings practice

The Vikings had quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Shaun Hill back practicing and throwing during team drills on Tuesday at Winter Park. Bridgewater sat out the Vikings’ preseason game in Seattle on Thursday, and didn’t throw in practices Saturday and Sunday. Hill played against the Seahawks, but had a “vet day” on Saturday and also didn’t throw on Sunday. There was an ESPN report over the weekend that Bridgewater had a slightly sore shoulder.  Teams are not obligated to issue injury reports during training camp. Joel Stave has played most of the first two preseason games at...

Vikings TE Rhett Ellison passes physical, can now return to practice

Now Vikings followers can begin wondering if they’ll keep four tight ends. Rhett Ellison passed his physical and has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday, the team announced. It’s the first major step toward Ellison returning from a severe knee injury suffered only eight months ago in Green Bay. Ellison, 27, can now rejoin the team at practice after he’s been kept to the sideline for most of this summer, working with athletic trainers as part of his physical rehabilitation. He’s played a key role as a blocking specialist the past two seasons, though...

Four things I'm watching for from the Vikings this week

Eyes are on the Vikings offense as quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to rest a reported sore shoulder and offensive line combinations keep changing. Players return to practice Tuesday after an off day that was moved up following Sunday’s shortened session. With Bridgewater and backup Shaun Hill limited by undisclosed injuries, only one quarterback, undrafted rookie Joel Stave, could run most of the starting offense over the weekend. So that will be the obvious topic of conversation at Winter Park, where they’ll practice three times and finish the week with the first practice at...
