Vikings Preseason Opener Saturday Night
Training camp in Mankato has concluded, and the Minnesota Vikings are now ready to get their preseason underway. You can catch all of the action on Cool Country 100.9 FM tonight, Saturday Aug. 14th at 7pm. The Vikings will travel down to St. Louis to face a Rams team that is still rebuilding, butthe Purple will be without some key pieces themselves.
Vikings QB Brett Favre still hasn’t decided if he’s going to play in 2010, so Tarvaris Jackson will get the start. WR Percy Harvin, 2009′s Offensive Rookie of the Year, won’t be making the trip either as he continues to deal with the a death in his family and recurring migrane headaches. As if that weren’t enough for Purple fans to panic over, WR Sidney Rice continues to be on the PUP list with an injured hip and CBS Sports reports that center John Sullivan won’t be suiting up for the game due to his calf injury.
Still, for diehard Vikings fans, this is an exciting day. After all, it’s the first time we’ve seen our favorite squad since the painful loss last year to the Saints in the NFC Championship. GO VIKES!!!
