McKinnie, who attended a court hearing in Florida the day before, was back for the voluntary-but-expected spring practices known as ``organized team activities.''
McKinnie pleaded not guilty to charges including aggravated battery, which is a felony, and three misdemeanors after a street brawl outside a Miami nightclub in February.
He declined to discuss his legal situation after practice, but said it's been a ``learning experience'' for him.
McKinnie said he wouldn't ``make any speculations'' about whether he'll face a suspension from the NFL, but that he's hoping to be with the Vikings all season.
