Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer sounds as if he's going to side towards being cautious
with his starters the remainder of the preseason. The Vikings are a well documented 12-2 ATS under Zimmer. The team plays at Seattle on Friday.
“You know, I’m honestly really weighing that a lot,” Zimmer said, via the Star Tribune. “I happened to have the game on in the background and I saw two defensive starters go out for the season [this weekend]. And I saw one team had five guys injured.”
“It’s a really fine line,” he added. “My concern is all right, how much do we weigh the guys that I really know — I have an idea if they can play — just getting them in there to play and the backfire to that is really, are they going to be in shape for Sept. 11? That’s something I’m contemplating right now.”
