Jackson back in action for Vikings

MANKATO, Minn. — Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson went through the majority of practice and saw his most extensive action since spraining his left knee Saturday morning.

Jackson was held out of final team drills, which were conducted at full speed, for precautionary reasons. Vikings coach Brad Childress said he didn’t want to risk Jackson being tangled up or hit. Otherwise, Jackson went through all drills and showed no signs of being hampered.

Childress admitted that Jackson, despite wearing a knee brace, didn’t appear to “baby” the knee.

Sage Rosenfels worked with the No. 1 offense, and John David Booty rotated in with Jackson.

I will have more from Vikings training camp later today in this blog and on NFL Network’s Total Access.
