T. Jackson Appears Set to Reclaim Vikings' Starting Job

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson participated in the Minnesota Vikings' practice Wednesday and appears poised to reclaim the starting job.

Jackson missed last weekend's game because of a broken finger on his passing hand. He missed two games earlier in the season because of a groin injury. With top backup Kelly Holcomb sidelined by a neck injury, the Vikings would have had to turn to Brooks Bollinger this week if Jackson had remained unable to play.

Things got so bad that former NFL quarterback Jeff George has been lobbying publicly for the Vikings to re-sign him. Vikings Coach Brad Childress dismissed that possibility Wednesday, suggesting that perhaps George should go to a fantasy camp instead.
