T-Jack Pops His Knee, Says it's Fine

A wacky day of training camp – including a morning session that was forced indoors by bad weather, and an evening session attended by 4,000 fans who need to get a life – ended with yet another health scare for Tarvaris Jackson.

According to Access Vikings, Jackson had just thrown a near interception to Benny Sapp during drills when he heard a pop in his knee and began to limp.  The situation was downplayed by everyone involved including T-Jack who said afterward, “It’s fine,” and speculated that the pop was just scar tissue breaking.

Jackson did return to practice after missing only one play, so maybe it was nothing.  Or maybe Jackson’s knee is messed up and this is the way it’s going to be all season.  Good thing we’re not really depending on him except as a back-up – if that.

    I am glad we spent all that time on Favre and did not do anything to help our QB position. Looks like we are going to put the load on A.P. again. Damn if he could just play Qb too.

    vikeman took a deep offence to that “got to get a life comment”. he said, “what the hell’s with that?”  “going to viking camp is a big part of my life, hell i’m semi-retired why can’t i go and spend my summer watching the vikes workout?”  danzinski did it again. this is why vikeman knows what he is talking about. he’s there.

    oh and speaking of vikes camp; vikeman said mortensen does’nt know shit about what to report on about camp. mike mayock from the net was there and watched the goal line stand of the D that stuffed AP 3 times before he finally got in on a questionable call? vikeman said, “ooooooooowwwhoooo, dat damn D looks good.”

    vikeman said he thought the lb got there late or could have still stuffed him. vikeman said he was jumpin up and down and nearly had a stroke.

    vikeman says, NO T-BONE……he’s a white vick.

    he also said, nothing racial or discrimination meant. he hates vick’s talent for the position, and does’nt want another player like his style white, black, or purple.
