Vikings.com has a good interview with D-line coach Andre Patterson up. Check it out. Interesting comments on the guys. Will Sutton in particular.

I like Andre Patterson. He does a good job with his Dlines.

I'm super interested in what Sutton does. It could even be that the extra weight the Bears had him playing with contributed to his ankle injury.

The Vikings lost running back Bishop Sankey to a torn ACL on Thursday night: strib.mn/2wBF3Rn

Hope he has a good recovery.

Goodness. Hopefully the season brings something a little better offensively.

Rhodes went down in practice today but said OK.

Treadwell back at practice but said his thigh still isn't right.

Poor dude. I wish him well. It's a long recovery and now his professional future in the NFL is in doubt. Hopefully his college degree proves useful.

Internal. With Sendejo out Kearse got work with the 1s in practice. He had a decent game vs the Bills, particularly in run support. Better angles than last year. Sendejo's reason for being out is undisclosed.

With Wayne's and Sendejo injury status,that leaves us 2 down in the secondary.
Still concerned about Reiff, he is back at practice but not doing full participation . Hill is still doing the bulk of the work.
How long will it take him to get back in shape with pads?

La Confora says Vikes one of a few teams interested in FA corner Trumaine Brock.
