The Minnesota Vikings have released the first official depth chart in preparation for Sunday night’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It provides few surprises:
The Depth Chart/August 5, 2015
DeMarcus Van Dyke
Antone Exum Jr.
Let’s not pull any punches here, if Teddy Bridgewater plays at all this week, it will be the first two series, tops. Adrian Peterson will make the trip and he might even suit up, but it’s unlikely he’ll play. Any veteran over 30 will get extremely limited time — if he gets any time at all.
Vikings fans aren’t going to learn a whole lot about their team this Sunday night, Aug. 9, when the Vikes open the pre-season in the Hall of Fame Game against Pittsburgh (7 p.m. CDT on NBC’s Sunday Night Football).
However, it’s NFL football and it’s here for us to enjoy.
