Minnesota Vikings Training Camp 2018: Day 14 recap
By Adam Patrick
Defense and Special Teams on Day 14:
Holmes exits practice early
The Vikings’ trainers certainly got a ton of work in during Monday’s practice. Among those who left the field with an injury was rookie defensive tackle Jalyn Holmes.
Nothing is known yet about what sort of injury Holmes is dealing with, but it’s something to keep an eye on.
Barr and Joseph back
After both sat out Minnesota’s preseason matchup against the Broncos on Saturday, linebacker Anthony Barr and defensive tackle were seen taking part in the team’s practice on Monday. However, Barr only participated in the individual drill portion of the session and not when the Vikings were going through team drills.
Despite the linebacker having a few practices this year similar to Monday’s session, nothing has been reported yet on what type of injury is preventing him from participating in a full practice.
Griffen gets the day off
In what seems just like a veteran’s day off, Minnesota defensive end Everson Griffen was not a participant in the team’s practice on Monday.
Griffen played in the Vikings’ preseason game on Saturday and nothing has been reported in the recent past about him suffering an injury. So unless otherwise noted, the talented Minnesota pass rusher is probably just fine.
