EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The Minnesota Vikings have switched up their training camp schedule.
The team released Thursday their slate of two-a-day practices at Minnesota State University in Mankato, where they'll report July 26 with the first on-field workout the following day.
But this time, the Vikings will have hour-long walk-through practices in the mornings and put the helmets and pads on for a full 2.5-hour workout in the afternoons.
There are 15 days of two-a-days this summer.
The Vikings also revealed Thursday they'll use the KFAN-FM radio narration by Paul Allen, Pete Bercich and Greg Coleman to simultaneously announce this year's exhibitions on television.
Three preseason games will be broadcast on KARE 11 and the other is on WUCW-TV. Former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber has joined the crew as a sideline reporter with Coleman.
