Access Vikings: Guion hurts elbow; Frazier has the talk with Jennings

Posted by: Mark Craig under NFC Updated: July 27, 2013 - 5:47 PM

MANKATO -- Couple of items before some of us bolt up I-169 as fast as Koren Robinson used to zoom down it to beat curfew:

Letroy Guion injures an elbow: The Vikings had their first injury before their first day in full pads. The extent of the injury isn't known, but the starting nose tackle injured an elbow near the end of Saturday’s practice and was taken for X-rays Saturday evening.
“[Guion] was a little frustrated, I guess, when it happened,” coach Leslie Frazier said. “They’re going to X-ray him and let me know what’s going on with that.”
Guion slammed his helmet to the ground on the sideline after injuring the elbow. He shook his head coming off the field after practice when someone asked him if he was OK.
The Vikings don't practice Sunday. They're resume workouts on Monday.

Frazier has talk with Jennings: Frazier said he talked with receiver Greg Jennings about his comments in Thursday’s Star Tribune in which Jennings implied that former Packers teammate Aaron Rodgers considered himself bigger than the team.
“Yes I did, and hopefully there will be no more reporting on that with Greg Jennings,” Frazier said. “We had a little conversation about that, so we’re moving on.”
Asked why he had the talk with Jennings, Frazier said, “We’re the Vikings and we want to talk about us and what we’re trying to get done here. He understands that. That’s where our focus has to be. We have so much work to get done. We don’t really want to be looking at and describing other teams, other teams’ players. It’s us. We got to focus on us. He’s good with that.”
