(KNSI) - Vikings' rookies finished up their three-day stint without the entire team at TCO Performance Center in Eagan today.
A few select veterans also joined in on the practices that, according to defensive coordinator George Edwards, help the team focus on the little things.
"We got a good three days of work, working on techniques, the fundamentals and a couple installs in to kinda of get them more acclimated to when our vets come in today."
Although it's nice to get the rookies started earlier, one of the select veterans, Kyle Sloter (pictured below) takes the added practices as a way to grow from errors made on the field.
"It's good to get out here for these rookie practices so we can make our mistakes now so when bullets really start flying tomorrow, we are ready to go."
The rest of the team is set to report later today and the first full-team practice will be tomorrow, Friday, July 26th at 9:00 a.m.
Even if it wasn't the whole team the last few days, Edwards is ready to get going and grow as a team.
"It's great to be back. it's great to get started this journey to try and come out here and get better each and every day."
The purple and their fans most assuredly hope the team rebounds in 2019 after missing the playoffs in 2018 with a record of 8-7-1.
