You Put Rudolph In, You Take AP Out, You Put Chris Carr In And You Shake It All About

Sage Rosenfels doesn't Hokey Pokey. He Rosencopters.

EDIT: In addition to everything Ted mentioned, 1500 ESPN is reporting that Letroy Guion aggravated his knee injury and likely won't play on Friday, either. -Chris

You do the Viking Pokey and you turn yourself around, that's what it's all about, HEY!

Fair amount of injury news, courtesy of Tom Pelissero over the last couple of days.

As we all know, AP will not play in the pre-season, but thankfully, there's been no setback in his rehab, and it looks like he's on track to play the season opener...at least I think so. Probably. Maybe. Not sure.

I'm really on the fence about AP. I think if he's healthy he should play, but if the Vikes want to be cautious, Toby Gerhart will play well in his place.

Differing news on the two guys that were suffering from concussion-like symptoms, Chris Cook and Kyle Rudolph. Cook still has some lingering affects and will not play Friday. I would bet he's done for the pre-season, as the final game is generally the down roster guys fighting for roster spots. That means either Chris Carr or Josh Robinson will start in his place. For Carr it's an opportunity to finally impress someone, for Robinson it might mean an opportunity to really push for a starting spot.

Rudolph, on the other hand, is back at practice and will play Friday. His counterpart, John Carlson, still has a stiffy...KNEE, a stiff knee, and I would bet he's done for the pre-season as well.

For me, the only concerns are AP long term and John Carlson. Carlson is an important part of the two tight end offense, and the quicker he gets back on the field, the better for everyone.
