Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer sees this training camp to be like no other he’s been a part of.

However, one of the constants is to get the rookies up and running as quickly as possible, especially OL Ezra Cleveland.

"He’s athletic and understands the scheme. He’s understanding what he’s doing, but like the others needs to work on improving his technique," said Zimmer.

Something Zimmer has always enjoyed in U.S. Bank Stadium is having the obvious homefield advantage. With no fans in the stands that’ll be a little more difficult, so when asked how to replicate that, Zimmer gave his thoughts.

"It’s going to be hard to replicate fans and fan noise. Don’t make mistakes and play good football will be like a homefield advantage," Zimmer added.

Zimmer also said they’ll dedicate the last 10 minutes of practice on Sunday to resemble an actual game and do more of that the following weekend.
