Fri, 30 Dec 2011 22:33:58 -0800

It is unclear whether the Minnesota Vikings will dress only two halfbacks, RBs Toby Gerhart and Lorenzo Booker, for the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears.

I know the playbook, so if they throw me in, I'm going to be ready." RB Jordan Todman was signed this week off the practice squad of the San Diego Chargers, but it's unlikely he'll be up to speed with the team's playbook to contribute.

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had hoped to bring together a larger group of teammates for workouts this week, but several veterans who had committed to attend didn't show up as expected Wednesday, June 1. WRs Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian, RB Lorenzo Booker and TE Visanthe Shiancoe had been expected to join a group of seven players who worked out at the IMG Madden Football Academy, but none showed up, citing a variety of excuses. "I thought it would be hard and probably should have had better planning," Ponder said of scheduling the informal minicamp right after the Memorial Day weekend. "We'll definitely do it again and hopefully a bunch more guys will show up ... I talked to a few guys, some other guys we couldn't get a hold of ... We got some good work in. To be around some of the guys was good for me."

Sat, 26 Apr 2008 16:30:41 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Lorenzo Booker said catching the football is definitely a strength he brings to the Eagles.

He is hopeful he will be given the same chance with the Eagles. He noted he does not have much experience in returning kicks or punts. He plans on being with the Eagles for their upcoming minicamp.
