Nordo's Notes
The intensity at training camp continued to increase today as the Minnesota Vikings work on putting the pieces together for the 2014 NFL season. I was able to take in the practice this afternoon, and the following is a quick download of my notes and observations! KFAN.com July 31, 2014

Rookie Jabari Price makes effort to impress Vikings
Jabari Price is a physical cornerback who claims to respect the mental aspect of the NFL. To prove it, the Vikings seventh-round draft pick carries a rapidly expanding notebook filled with helpful coaching tips, lessons learned and, yes, rookie mistakes made. Star Tribune July 31, 2014

Zimmer eyes Vikings' first preseason game
The days are blending in for Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer eight days into training camp, and he still has another eight days until the team trots into TCF Bank Stadium for its first preseason game against the Raiders next Friday. Star Tribune July 31, 2014

Jarius Wright has played a limited role in his first two seasons in the NFL. Star Tribune July 31, 2014

What you missed at Vikings training camp Thursday

Scoggins: Some positives, some questions at Vikings camp
I spent the past two days at Vikings training camp after returning from vacation. Every NFL team talks with optimism in camp before actual games are played, and the Vikings are no different. Star Tribune July 31, 2014

Refs arrive to give Vikings the rundown on new NFL rules
NFL officials arrived at Vikings training camp Thursday with a booklet and DVD chock full of new rules, interpretations and gadgets to talk about this weekend. Pioneer Press July 31, 2014

Heads up. Out-of-context quote coming at ya. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 31, 2014

AP to ESPN: 'I wasn't feeling good about being here in Minnesota'
Adrian Peterson opened up in a story posted on ESPN.com's NFL Nation about the end of the Leslie Frazier era.

But he didn't always feel that way, according to the story. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 31, 2014

As NFL emphasizes defensive contact penalties, Zimmer's not concerned
Mike Zimmer isn't worried about adjusting his coaching style to fit the NFL's rule changes and points of emphasis heading into 2014. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 31, 2014

Vikings will lean on Captain Munnerlyn as a leader on defense
Captain Munnerlyn started his first training camp with the Minnesota Vikings away from the action and on the sideline, placed on the physically unable to perform list so he could work his way through a minor hamstring injury. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 31, 2014

Jabari Price's study habits impress, but next step is to think less
Jabari Price's iPad has become an extension of his arm during the Minnesota Vikings training camp, but his style of learning still requires a pen and paper. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 31, 2014

Zimmer: Vikings will install much of August
The Vikings will continue to install their offensive and defensive plays for several more weeks of the preseason before cutting it off and getting specifically into the review stage and game-planning stage. Viking Update July 31, 2014

Holler: QB question a matter of ‘when’
The Vikings didn’t draft Teddy Bridgewater in the first round to sit for too long. He is on track to earning a starting spot, but the question is when that opportunity will come. Viking Update July 31, 2014

Zulgad: Bridgewater making an impression; Ponder not in the plans?
Five days into the Vikings' training camp, here are five observations, and opinions, from southern Minnesota. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities July 30, 2014

Hartman: Spielman sees lots of progress at camp
Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said that as the team works out in Mankato during their first training camp under new head coach Mike Zimmer, perhaps the most interesting position battle will be at quarterback. Star Tribune July 30, 2014

Lighter Floyd hopes to make heavier impact with Vikings

Zimmer on injuries and Teddy with the first team
The Vikings were able to go through the first couple of days of training camp without the injury bug biting them. But that little bugger has reared its ugly head during the past two practices, and it has had a craving for the hamstrings of Vikings defensive backs in particular. Star Tribune July 30, 2014

Jerome Felton: 'If we’re going to use a fullback, I feel I’ll be that guy.'
A few days ago, I wrote about Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner’s comment that he wants a “physical presence” at fullback and his usage (or lack thereof) of fullbacks in 2013. Star Tribune July 30, 2014

Vikings camp: This ain't spring training
When major league baseball begins its season with spring training, fans wax poetic about the first crack of the bat. At NFL training camps, fans wait for the first cracked helmet. Pioneer Press July 30, 2014

Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson already considers himself a "Rising Star.'' Sports Illustrated is putting it in print. Pioneer Press July 30, 2014

At least three defensive backs have been bogged down by the injury during the first week of training camp.

Pioneer Press July 30, 2014

Vikings quarterbacks turn in first training camp stinker
The weather was perfect Wednesday as the Vikings returned from their first training camp off-day, but leading quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Teddy Bridgewater mostly had an afternoon to forget. Pioneer Press July 30, 2014
