Day 9 of Minnesota Vikings training camp was scary, fun, and eventful. Here are some of the top takeaways from team activities on Friday, Aug. 6.

Minnesota Vikings training camp has been a major source of drama for the NFL this year. With COVID-19 related issues, injuries, new coaches and players, and much more happening, this is hardly a typical camp for an NFL team.

Let’s take a look at some of the things that happened during team workouts and drills on Friday, Aug. 6, and discuss how they might impact the Minnesota Vikings heading into the 2021 NFL season.
