“The coaches have been stressing this technique and stressing how we should play and how we should play different blocks,” he said. “We’re buying in and believing what they’re saying.”
‘Other guy’ back
Josh Robinson, whom Zimmer referred to as “the other guy” while answering a question Monday, practiced. The cornerback has been in and out of practice over the past two weeks, leading Zimmer to quip “you can’t make the club in the tub,” and he has yet to play in the preseason.
Cornerback Shaun Prater also returned after suffering a mild concussion Saturday. Remaining sidelined were nose tackle Linval Joseph, cornerback Jabari Price, tight end Chase Ford and linebackers Brandon Watts and Gerald Hodges.
Defensive end Brian Robison, excused Monday to deal with a personal matter, returned Tuesday.
Practice squad increases
The NFL sent out a memo Tuesday saying the eight-man practice squad has been increased to 10.
The Vikings have several young players they like at key spots such as cornerback and offensive line. With the two extra practice squad spots they, like every other team, will have more options available to develop young players.
