Mike Zimmer expects Riley Reiff, other injured Vikings to play in third preseason game

SEATTLE — On Aug. 27, the Vikings offense is expected to be together for the first time in a game. That’s when the Vikings play the San Francisco 49ers during the preseason’s third exhibition. It’s also when head coach Mike Zimmer expects left tackle Riley Reiff and running back Latavius Murray to make their Vikings debuts after injuries have sidelined both all month. “I think we’ll get all our guys back next week,” Zimmer said after the Vikings’ 20-13 preseason loss to the Seahawks on Friday night. Only against the 49ers will quarterback Sam Bradford finally drop back with...

Seahawks-Vikings Final Score: Seattle prevails, but win overshadowed by George Fant injury

Seahawks-Vikings Final Score: Seattle prevails, but win overshadowed by George Fant injury

The Seattle Seahawks improved to 2-0 on the preseason with a 20-13 triumph over the Minnesota Vikings. Russell Wilson was absolutely superb, going 13-of-18 for 206 yards and 2 touchdowns. Doug Baldwin was in fine form, wrecking Vikings defenders with his route-running and gaining 69 yards on 4 catches. The first-team defense had some up-and-down moments in both the pass and run game, but otherwise kept Sam Bradford and company out of the end zone. Unfortunately, it’s hard not to be bummed by what figures to be a very serious injury to left tackle George Fant, but we’ll get to that a...

NFL notes: Case Keenum has a solid debut for the Vikings

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater need not rush back from injury after Case Keenum showed glimpses of being a capable backup in the Minnesota Vikings’ 17-10 preseason-opening win over the host Buffalo Bills on Thursday night. Taking over for starter Sam Bradford, Keenum completed 11 of 16 passes for...

Immediate thoughts on the Buffalo Bills starters in the first preseason game

Immediate thoughts on the Buffalo Bills starters in the first preseason game

How did the Bills look early? The Buffalo Bills starters spent the first quarter on the field against the Minnesota Vikings. The offense moved the ball well and the undermanned defensive line disrupted Sam Bradford. Here are my thoughts. Eddie Yarbough had the first sack of the night. His hands are awesome and it led to his sack. He’s earned a spot on the team through the first few weeks of training camp. Jerry Hughes also had a nice sack of Sam Bradford and another QB pressure. He really likes the 4-3. The first three passes from Taylor went to Sammy Watkins. A few more did later....

Sam Bradford in a learning curve with deep passes to Laquon Treadwell

Quarterback Sam Bradford hasn’t had a whole lot of time to develop a chemistry with receiver Laquon Treadwell. And it showed on Saturday as the Vikings went through their first training camp practice in full pads. Especially on the deep throws. In three instances — two one-on-one drills and one in team drills — Treadwell got open behind the defense, but Bradford clearly overestimated the second-year wideout’s speed as he overthrew him all three times. Speed, or lack thereof, has been one of the primary question marks lurking around the 2016 first-round draft pick. Injuries also...

Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Week 14 vs Minnesota Vikings

The Panthers begin a late season three-game home stand with a matchup against the Vikings. The Panthers welcome the Vikings to Bank of America Stadium for a Week 14 showdown that will be the first of three consecutive home games for Carolina. Minnesota is a tough opponent to gauge because we don’t even know who their quarterback will be yet. There’s rumors that Teddy Bridgewater could be ready to play this season, but if he’s not the Vikings will likely go with Sam Bradford again like they did last season. I’m going to give the Panthers the edge here because they’re at home. Other...
