Tarvaris Jackson said Tuesday he didn't know when he'd return to practice, but it turns out he didn't have to wait much longer.
T-Jack was back behind center for the Vikings at practice Wednesday.
According to the beat writers of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, who have Vikings fans very well covered on Twitter, Jackson was "moving well" and participated in a portion of the team drills, although he was "eased into" practice by sitting out some portions.
Players often say that training camp plays tricks on their mind. Two days can feel like two weeks, and they lose track of when the weekend arrives.
Apparently, that can happen for lowly bloggers as well. It sure feels like Jackson's injury occurred a lot longer ago than Saturday.
Jackson's four days off may put him behind in his battle with Sage Rosenfels, but he has time to catch up, especially during the preseason.
That's assuming coach Brad Childress hasn't already made up his mind who he prefers.
Chilly came out immediately and said that the injury was minor, but after T-Jax missed a few days of practice people started to speculate on how bad the injury really was given Jackson's injury-prone history. I'm very happy that T-Jax is back taking snaps, but this little scare just made me even more confident than I already was that Sage will come out of this competition as the starter.
Until he does something dumb like turn the ball over 4 times in 1 quarter...
The QB position will always give us something to talk about, won't it?
