Notes From Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: 8/13 Practice Today was the first training camp day back after the first pre-season game against the Denver Broncos. While the 42-28 win was exciting Youth Harrison Smith Jersey , it was back to work as usual for the Vikings. Here are a few notes from today’s practice. Grid View Stefon Diggs and Everson Griffen did not participate in practice today. Diggs helped with the wide receiver drills but did eventually leave. Griffen was not out on the field at all today but hopefully he will be back and dressed for tomorrow. While Linval Joseph and Anthony Barr were not active for Saturday’s game, they did practice in full today. Mike Remmers did return today but was only doing individual drills. The Vikings are playing things cautious with him, as he is returning from an ankle injury. Stacy Coley was injured and did not return to practice after making an impressive jump for the ball on a catch. Unfortunately, he stayed on the ground and needed a cart to help him out. As of now Youth Anthony Barr Jersey , there is no word on his condition.But the biggest injury news, that luckily turned out to be a false alarm, was Rashod Hill. When he rolled his ankle, initially it didn’t look good. A cart was brought out and he was taken in to be looked at. But Youth Kirk Cousins Jersey , less than five minutes later, he walked back out to the field on his own. He did finish the drills and told reporters after that his ankle was “feeling fine.”Kaleb Johnson took the field today wearing number 66 and took reps with the second and third teams. Johnson is replacing Nick Easton, who is now on injured reserve.Kirk Cousins continues to look good coming off the first preseason game. He had a great pass to Latavius Murray and Murray was able to find a sizable hole and go for a big gain. Cousins had a few deep throws that looked sharp as well. One was to Adam Thielen while Cousins was under some pretty good pressure, and Thielen was able to catch it and stay in bounds. He also threw one to Dalvin Cook http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.c...-authentic , who was able to catch the ball but was eventually stopped. Speaking of Cook, he looked great today and was able to burst through the defense line on a few plays. Jared Goff produced perhaps the most prolific passing day in the history of the Los Angeles Rams and John Franklin-Myers strip-sacked Kirk Cousins to carry the Rams to a 38-31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night.Goff passed for 465 yards with five touchdowns on 26 of 33 passing and a perfect passer rating of 158.3 as the Rams sliced their way through the Vikings defense. Goff tossed a pair of touchdowns to Cooper Kupp, and one each to Todd Gurley, Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks to move to 4-0 for the first time since 2001.Goff is the ninth player in Rams franchise history to toss five touchdowns in a game. Only one other of those efforts – Norm Van Brocklin against Detroit in 1950 – came with zero interceptions being thrown. And while Van Brocklin passed for 293 yards that day Womens Brett Jones Jersey , Goff eclipsed the 450-yard mark against the Vikings.Cousins did his best to keep up with the Rams offense. He completed 36 of 50 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns before the lost fumble on Minnesota’s final possession ended their chances.A 16-yard touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson gave Minnesota the early 7-0 lead, but the Rams would respond immediately with an 8-yard touchdown from Goff to Gurley. Dan Bailey‘s 37-yard field goal gave the Vikings a 10-7 lead before Kupp raced for a 70-yard touchdown to give the Rams a 14-10 advantage.Cousins and Robinson would connect again for a 17-yard touchdown to put the Vikings back in front before another Goff to Kupp touchdown gave the Rams the lead for good. A 47-yard pass to Cooks extended the L.A. lead to 28-17, but Bailey would connect on his second field goal of the night to make it a 28-20 game at half.After a 34-yard Sam Ficken field goal, Cousins would hit Adam Thielen for a 45-yard score to close within three at 31-28. The Rams would respond once again with a 31-yard touchdown from Goff to Woods to take a 38-28 lead. Ficken missed a 28-yard field goal and Bailey connected on a 40-yard try to make it a one score game with 3:46 left to play. But after stopping the Rams inches shy of a first down http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.c...-authentic , Franklin-Myers came up with the icing on the cake to seal the win for the Rams.The 556 yards of offense allowed by the Vikings was the fifth most allowed in franchise history and most allowed since the Atlanta Falcons gained 558 yards in a 41-28 win over Minnesota in 2014.
