Tarvaris Jackson suffered an MCL sprain at practice Saturday, but Brad Childress is doing his best to downplay its severity.
While the Vikings coach wouldn’t confirm that the sprain was only a Grade 1 sprain, he said the team has no plans to bring in another quarterback to take snaps behind Sage Rosenfels and John David Booty.
That lack of action speaks louder than any words and indicates Jackson shouldn’t be out long.
“I’m not that clairvoyant. He just stayed and treated and it looks like he’ll be just fine,” Childress said.
Even if Jackson is only misses a few days, rather than weeks, Rosenfels has a nice opportunity to get comfortable in a new offense.
He’ll take the majority of snaps with the first team in hopes of gaining on Jackson’s inherent advantage from spending his whole career in Childress’ system.
(Yes, we made it through the whole post without a Favre reference! Until now.)
