Toby Gerhart is from southern California, so living in Minnesota was foreign for him, and so was having to deal with all the snow.

The 15 players released are as follows: wide receivers Kamar Jorden, AJ Love, Kerry Taylor, Bryan Walters, offensive linemen Bridger Buche, Grant Cook, Levi Horn, linebackers Solomon Elimimian, Tyler Nielsen, defensive linemen Anthony Jacobs, Ernest Owusu,...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jasper Brinkley has been set as the Minnesota Vikings' starting middle linebacker since the offseason, but he might have finally won the job in Friday's third preseason game.
Minnesota didn't add veteran insurance in case Brinkley was slow to develop after missing all of last season after hip surgery. The starting job has been Brinkley's to lose...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings finally have tight end John Carlson back on the field.
Carlson, signed to a five-year, 25 million contract as a free agent from the Seattle Seahawks during the offseason, had missed three weeks of practice with his new team while dealing with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. The lost time was making the Vikings eager to...
Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says he's had enough with these replacement officials after watching them for three weeks of preseason games.
With the regular season less than two weeks away, Kluwe took to Twitter on Friday night to call for an end to the labor dispute between the NFL and the NFL Referees Association after an ugly 12-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

He isn’t afraid to give his opinion on any topic, and was probably more vocal than anyone else, at least publicly, of last years lockout. Earlier this year, he called for Jonathan Vilma to be “banned for life,” [...]
MINNEAPOLIS Following sports is a practice built on impatience. No one wants the necessary buildup. No one wants to wonder. We want consensus, and we want it now. We want to know who will be a star and who's lost his edge, and we want to base those assessments on just a handful of games and a few fleeting moments.Impatience is cured in the NFL's regular season, sometimes...
From Christian Ponder's off-target throws for Minnesota to San Diego's depleted offense to a bunch of bungled calls by the replacement officials, this was a preseason game in every way.
The Chargers at least went home happy with the way their defense is playing. The Vikings were reminded that their offense isn't ready yet for September.

The Vikings entered the preseason with several positions up for grabs, but no one has emerged as the clear-cut answer for Jerome Simpson’s replacement at split end.
