Zimmer on why Aviante Collins started over Brian O'Neill: "I just thought he had a better week. He battled all week long, thought he had a better week. Aviante is a very good athlete, got good strength and size to him. The way they rushed some guys, I felt like he'd be better"
Just handed in my press badge officially ending my internship at the @startribune big thanks to everyone who made this summer a success and who took the time to teach me photography and guide me through some difficult times outside the office. Hope to see y'all again soon
Kirk Cousins: "I think the preseason has always been hard to take a lot from. As much as we say that, people are always going to want to draw a lot from it, and that's fine. ... If you want to call it a wake-up call, that's fine, but it'll get us ready to go."
“He's a great player. Anytime you put this many good things on tape in preseason, it's not a question of if you'll be in the league but where. Even in protection, Mike stepped up in protection on third down.” -@KirkCousins8 on Mike Boone on competing for a RB spot

Kirk Cousins has high praise for #Vikings reserve RBs. On Mike Boone: “It’s not a question of if he’ll play, but where.” Really liked a pass protection pickup of his late in the game.

Mike Zimmer said several players will need to go on injured reserve after getting hurt on Saturday. Cedrick Lang will have surgery, he said. The Vikings could get Mike Remmers, and possibly Pat Elflein, back for the third game against Seattle.
