Every weekday, we walk you through what’s going on with the Vikings.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
— My colleague Mark Craig provided an early look at the Chiefs, and he didn’t like what he saw, especially not from quarterback Alex Smith.
— Even though the Chiefs have lost four straight games and star running back Jamaal Charles, the Vikings are still wary of Sunday’s opponent.
— On this week’s Access Vikings podcast, Michael Rand and I talked about Stefon Diggs and the otherwise banged-up receiver group, the team’s need to go on a run over the next month and options on the offensive line.
BEHIND ENEMY LINES
— Second-year running back Charcandrick West, who will split time in the Chiefs backfield with Knile Davis, is ready to step up with Charles out.
— The Chiefs made a bunch of minor roster moves yesterday.
— Kansas City’s locker-room leaders say the Chiefs aren’t done fighting.
TODAY’S VIKINGS SCHEDULE
Coach Mike Zimmer and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater are set to be on the podium after the walkthrough. Then the Vikings practice at 1 p.m.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Cornerback Josh Robinson has become a forgotten man after suffering a partially torn pectoral muscle during spring workouts. But he is eligible to be activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list next week. He is optimistic about where he stands physically, but the Vikings must make a decision when it comes to deciding whether to activate him. To do so, they will have to create a roster spot. They currently have six cornerbacks on the roster. One of them is Jabari Price, who has not been activated in the two games since he served his two-game NFL suspension. The Vikings could also opt to cut ties with Robinson, but that would be a risk. Sure, they are pretty deep at that critical position right now, but that can change in a flash.
