Some notes from Training Camp (hey, it’s all we’ve got until the season starts!)

This is just a list of some things happening during training camp. I’m getting most of my camp information from http://twitter.com/JuddZulgad and http://twitter.com/chipscoggins.

The updates will be bolded. My own comments are not.

  • Visanthe Shiancoe seems to be all over the place, making big plays
    Last year he stepped up his play to an amazing level. It sounds to me like he’s picking up right where he left off. If Shiancoe can continue his great play from last year, he’ll be a very important piece of the Vikings offense this season.
  • EJ Henderson is all over the field on defense
    We only got about 3.5 games from Henderson last year, and it already looked like he was making his bid to be known as the top linebacker in the league. One of the things I’m looking forward to most this year is watching Henderson improve what was already a great defense last year. I mean, think about it… the middle linebacker is one of the most important positions on defense. Our defense played great last year with tons of transition at that position for most of the year!
  • Jackson isn’t practicing right now
    His sprain is only a Grade I sprain, which basically means he’s day to day. That’s good news. If we’re really going to have a QB competion, he should probably be competing.
  • Rosenfels learning the system
    It’s apparently a little different than the WCO they ran in Houston, but according to the guys watching the practices, he’s making some decent plays.
