No Team Drills For T. Jackson

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson did some throwing during the Minnesota Vikings' practice today and participated in individual drills but did not take part in full team drills.

Jackson suffered a knee injury, reportedly a sprained medial collateral ligament, during Saturday's preseason game in Baltimore.

A sprained MCL usually takes 2-4 weeks to heal, and the Vikings seem hopeful that Jackson will be ready for the Sept. 7 regular season opener at Green Bay. Coach Brad Childress today even left open the possibility of Jackson playing in this weekend's exhibition game.

However, it seems likely that backup Gus Frerotte will start this game in Jackson's place.
