Heading north

The 15 days of practice in Mankato were marked by good weather and basically good health for the Vikings.

“It was a good three weeks,” Simpson said. “I loved the enthusiasm of all the guys … Everyone was striving to get better.”

Said tight end Kyle Rudolph: “They had a very tough training camp for us. Coach Frazier likes to set the standard very high, and I think everyone on our team responded to that very well.”

Etc.

• How much do starters need to play during the preseason to get sharp for the regular season? There might not be a good answer to that question.

“I’m not too experienced with that,” second-year safety Harrison Smith said. “Last year, I just played whenever they wanted me to. It’ll be the same this year. I guess you just have to try to get better any time you are on the field, whether it’s practice or a game.”

• After missing the Texans game because of a hamstring injury, rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes will get a long look against Buffalo. “We want him to get a feel for the speed of an NFL game,” Frazier said.

Josh Robinson and Chris Cook will be the starting corners, with Rhodes getting a lot of action as the outside corner in nickel packages.
