Vikings camp report: QBs still the focus

NFL.com senior writer Steve Wyche was in Mankato, Minn., checking out Vikings training camp.

Wyche says Minnesota’s QB situation — even without Brett Favre in the mix — is still intriguing. Tarvaris Jackson returned to the practice field for the first time since spraining his left knee, and Sage Rosenfels looked comfortable at the helm of the first-team offense.

“I said all along that the Sage and Tarvaris thing is going to be a competition — and it is,” Vikings coach Brad Childress said. “I know Tarvaris is anxious to get back in there and compete.”

Some of Wyche’s other observations from Vikings training camp:

  • WR Sidney Rice will continue to confound fans — and probably coaches. The former second-round draft pick is incredibly gifted but remains inconsistent.
  • First-round pick Percy Harvin is being pushed, maybe harder than any other player, to figure out things.
  • Rookie LB Jasper Brinkley, a fifth-round pick from South Carolina, is quickly making a name for himself.
  • Rookie Phil Loadholt (6-8, 343) looks like he will be the starting right tackle.
  • RB Adrian Peterson showed why he’s the among the best players in the league.
