TODAY’S VIKINGS SCHEDULE
Coach Mike Zimmer and Bridgewater will be on the podium at 11 a.m. after the morning walkthrough wraps up. The Vikings practice at 1 p.m.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Zimmer didn’t get excited about the idea of several of his players earning a spot in the Pro Bowl. When asked on Monday if he expected to have multiple players honored, he said “I don’t know. I’m a team guy. If they get voted in, that’s great, I hope they do. And if they don’t, we’ve got to play better. … The Pro Bowl is the furthest thing from my mind.” Peterson was the only player selected on Tuesday. None of the Vikings’ defensive standouts — safety Harrison Smith, nose tackle Linval Joseph and linebacker Anthony Barr — were selected.
