Reports of Remmers aren't glowing. Griffen, Robison, Hunter, Joseph all doing well, to be expected. Lot of buzz on Dalvin.

Sherels is the man on Punt Returns but I'd rather see MicKinnon return kicks if he can handle it. Of course he's injured right now but I think he has some good moves and has more potential to get bigger gains.

Man, the Reiff injury, is taking the little bit of wind I had out of my sails... Typical Vikings team. :wallbang:

It's a bit too early to be too worried, I think. We don't know what's wrong and it's still a bit before the season.

Honestly it's the comments from Zim about it being "Nothing to worry about" that have me worried. We've been down that road with him before.

Definitely not what we want to read right now. The good news is Rashod Hill is taking time as the starter and not TJ Clemmings. Maybe they finally figured out Clemmings is bad news.

Yeah. Clemmings has been moved to guard anyway. Sad part is he's probably still LT3.

Note that Reiff, Brothers and Odenigbo watching walkthrough this morning. None will likely practice.

Reiff is a vet, so the main loss here is time to gel with his teammates, assuming this isn't something more major that they are trying to keep under wraps...

No way Remmers lasts. Sadly, the Vikings may have to hope for another teams veteran cap casualty to patch that spot. At least patch it better than what Remmers is doing.

I wouldn't be so fast to write Remmer's off. Keep in mind what is playing behind him...

As I and others have said, even a below average to average tackle is a large improvement over what took the snaps through most of 2016. Remmers was never going to be a world beater, if he was they never would have signed him to such a small contract relative to the other guys in Free Agency. Now is a time for patience...

Quite a few snaps where Isidora has been there in place of Berger. Don't know if it's vets rest or something else

Post Re: 2017 Training Camp Updates
thanks DP, i'm sure everyone will be really shocked by this:

Quote:
In addition to Isidora taking a few reps at right guard, T.J. Clemmings was awarded a few snaps with the first-team. He entered during a team situation where the Vikings had the ball at the opposing 30-yard-line with 1:54 on the clock. On the second play, Clemmings was destroyed with speed by Tom Johnson, who literally almost stopped the play. The next snap had a similar result. Clemmings was turned around by Johnson and Bradford was forced to throw the ball away. The coaches brought the kicking team on the field and kicker Marshall Koehn drilled a 47-yard field goal with plenty of distance. However, it wasn’t before Clemmings was destroyed twice.

That is a microcosm of last season on offense. The guy is a major liability right now.

It was reported that Reid Fragal was currently backup RT. But I really haven't seen much mentioned about him.

Hopefully this is just camp experimentation, which is common. Clemmings needs to go. Honestly, Hill will probably be first man up for either tackle position.

Second that. Clemmings is dead to me. Hill should be competing for RT with Remmers as well as backup/swing tackle. I'm concerned with the entire right side of the line. I figured Berger would lock up RG pretty easily but reports aren't great. Seems like that's a position very much a question mark.

I asked before but dint remember the answer. Why did he switch to OL at Pittsburgh?

Seems like McKinnon is always banged up.....not sure he can handle it but he has shown to be explosive at times.

Looks like it was a whim./experiment. Was asked if he wanted to and said "Sure."

Was hoping he'd be back after the day off. Injuries starting to roll in around the league, Dominique Easley torn ACL, Will Fuller broken collarbone, Forest Lamp carted off..
