MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Vikings held quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and his top two receivers, Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice, out of Saturday's preseason game against Pittsburgh.
NFL coaches emphasize the third exhibition game as the last real tuneup for the first-stringers before the regular season begins, but the Vikings need to be cautious with Jackson's sprained right knee. He was hurt last week at Baltimore.
He warmed up his arm before the game, but wore shorts and a baseball cap while the rest of the team went through drills.
Rice has fought a virus the last few weeks and has not practiced much. Berrian is bothered by a sore toe.
