The late practice on August 4th is a full-team scrimmage at Blakeslee Stadium in Mankato.

Leading up to Training Camp, we will be taking a look at all of the relevant positions, and what we expect the make-up of the final roster to be when camp breaks on August 15. We hope that you enjoy the preview, and keep in mind that this is just the start of the great Minnesota Vikings coverage you can expect for the 2012 NFL season.
