Offense on Day 7:

Coley returns to the field

After suffering a strained groin during the team’s very first training camp practice last week, receiver Stacy Coley was back on the field for the Vikings on Thursday. Coley is fighting to be one of the pass catchers included on Minnesota’s final roster this year and missing five practices is certainly not going to help his chances.

Coley has the talent to be make the Vikings’ final 53, but he just has to find a way to stay healthy for the rest of camp.

Remmers remains sidelined

During goal line drills on Tuesday, Minnesota guard Mike Remmers came out of a play limping and was later seen on the sideline in a walking boot. Since then, it has been reported that Remmers suffered an injury to his left ankle.

The severity of his injury is still unknown at this point, but it is bad enough that the Vikings kept him out of practice on Thursday. On the bright side, Remmers was no longer wearing a walking boot as he watched his teammates from the sideline.

Treadwell exuding confidence

A reoccurring top story out of Minnesota training camp this year has been the play of wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.

The Vikings are hoping that Treadwell can finally live up to the expectations that were given to him when the team selected him in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. If he keeps making plays like the one he made on Thursday, then good things seem to be coming for the young Minnesota receiver this season.

Receivers get banged up

At the beginning of practice on Thursday, every receiver on the Vikings’ depth chart was healthy and participating. But by the end, two of them were seen hobbling off the field.

New addition Tavarres King and undrafted rookie Chad Beebe both exited practice early with injuries. King is believed to have hurt his hamstring, but it reportedly doesn’t appear to be anything that should should keep him out for awhile.
