Vikings Preseason Going Well For Matt Kalil, Kalil Says

Rookie left tackle Matt Kalil is feeling good about his progress in his first preseason with the Vikings.

The No. 4 overall pick out of USC is excited about tonight's preseason game against the Chargers, where he is expected to play the entire first half. It will be the most plays he'll have in an NFL game until the regular season.

From the Star Tribune:

"We'll play all the way up until I think the beginning of the third quarter," said the new starting left tackle. "It'll be the most plays that I've played so far in a single NFL game. I thought I did pretty well [in the first two preseason games]. I'm looking to this next game to get more playing time and play the whole first half. I'm excited for it."

The third preseason game is typically considered the most important because the starters usually play more snaps in this preseason game than any other.
