Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Limited to rehab field to start OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell (undisclosed) was working on the rehab field during Wednesday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.

Treadwell wasn't previously dealing with an injury, so it's at least somewhat concerning that he was limited to the rehab field with players such as Dalvin Cook (knee) and Kyle Rudolph (ankle). That said, clarification should be provided as OTAs and mini-camp resume moving forward, so continue to monitor the situation. While the Vikings opted to release Jarius Wright this offseason, they then picked up free agent Kendall Wright, so Treadwell could be stuck in the No. 4 receiver role to start the year.

Vikings' Anthony Barr: Not present for start of OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barr (hamstring) wasn't present for the start of OTAs, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

Barr suffered a hamstring injury in the NFC Championship game back in January, though it seems highly likely he's back to full strength after a full offseason. The 26-year-old linebacker is currently playing in the final year of his rookie deal and is likely looking for a contract extension at some point in the future considering he's been to the Pro Bowl in three consecutive years. Coach Mike Zimmer wouldn't confirm if Barr's absence from OTAs was contract related, however, so it's simply a situation to montitor as minicamp and training camp approach.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Takes part in individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (knee) went through individual drills on the rehab field during Wednesday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. "I think he'll probably get some work [during OTAs and minicamp] and then should be ready to roll for training camp," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said.

It was recently reported that Cook remains ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn ACL, and his ability take the field for individual drills Wednesday only provides further optimism on that front. It sounds like he'll remain limited throughout offseason workouts, but once training camp rolls around, Cook should be cleared for full participation. Of course, the Vikings will likely be as cautious as possible with their top running back, so Cook could get days off here and there. All that said, fantasy owners can likely expect Cook to be back to full speed for the start of the upcoming season, barring any setbacks in camp or the preseason.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Works off to side at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph (ankle) worked on the rehab field during Wednesday's OTA session, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Rudolph took part in spring drills on a limited basis, but another month of rest and rehab hasn't gotten him to full health at this point. Once he does rejoin the mix, Rudolph will look to develop a rapport with the club's new quarterback, Kirk Cousins, who signed a three-year deal in the offseason. It's quite possible Rudolph will remain limited during the offseason program, but a return for the start of training camp could be in the cards.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Ready for limited OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday that Cook (knee) remains ahead of schedule, noting that the running back likely will get some work in OTAs this week but still figures to have limitations until training camp, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Given that Cook suffered an ACL tear Week 4 last year, there was never much chance he'd be cleared for all activities prior to training camp. He still seems to be on track for the best-case scenario, which involves limited participation throughout OTAs and mandatory minicamp, followed by full clearance for the start of training camp in late July. With any luck, reports in the coming weeks will elaborate on the extent of Cook's involvement during OTAs. Barring any major setbacks, he should be headed for a workload similar to the one he handled last September, when he piled up 61 carries and 10 catches in his three healthy games.
