Notebook: Crunch time for rookie returners

Two rookies have a shot to return punts, but they haven't gotten enough of an opportunity and might not be comfortable enough to take the job away from incumbent Marcus Sherels.

While some of the training camp battles on offense and defense are coming into focus, a couple rookies are still in contention for the spot as a punt returner.

The key, however, is consistency, and rookies Josh Robinson and Jarius Wright, along with second-year pro Bryan Walters, may not have had enough opportunity to show what they can do in game conditions for the Vikings to move on from incumbent return man Marcus Sherels.

Each one of the top four punt return options for special teams coordinator Mike Priefer has one return in the preseason, with Wright leading the way with a 15-yarder. None of the other options have had more than 5 yards on a return, and Priefer said the blockers didn't do a good enough job Friday against the Buffalo Bills to get a good look at his return options.

"I have my ideas because of practice tape and, as I tell these guys, all these young guys especially, practice is just as important as a game," Priefer said. "We're evaluating the show teams, the regular teams and of course all the preseason games."

If training camp practices are a good indication, the two rookies don't look comfortable enough field punts to allow Priefer to relax, if that is even possible.

"The guy I'm most comfortable with back there would be Marcus Sherels because he's done it before and he is a very sure-handed guy," Priefer said. "Josh Robinson has some juice to him as you have seen on defense as well. Bryan Walters has been there before, he's done it, and Jarius Wright is kind of in the developmental stage right now to be honest with you. But he's getting better, which excites me because he has a lot of talent as well."

Last year, Sherel was the only option used, returning 33 punts, fair-catching another 20 and finishing with an 8.4-yard average.

Wright returned only eight punts at Arkansas, six of those coming his freshman year. He averaged 6.1 yards over the course of those eight returns. Robinson returned 27 punts at Central Florida, with 20 of those coming in 2010 and seven last year, averaging 13.2 yards per return.

All of the punts last week in the Metrodome were fielded cleanly, but with any sort of breeze at training camp, Wright and Robinson struggled. Of late, Robinson has looked more comfortable, but whether he can impress Priefer enough in the next two preseason games to make a difference remains to be seen.

"Obviously indoors it won't be as big of a deal, but then you have a guy coming in this weekend like Mike Scifres, who I've gone against many, many times over the years, and he's just going to bombs away," Priefer said. "We'll have our guys a little bit deeper. Hopefully it'll be a little bit easier to track. Obviously it's not outdoors, but when we get outside my concern level goes up because of the inexperience with those two young guys."

As the Vikings cut down their roster, as required by the NFL, from 90 players to 75 next Friday and then to the regular-season limit of 53 on Aug. 31, special teams will play a role in who stays and who goes. Priefer said the roster decisions this year will be "real interesting" with more competition for jobs this year on offense and defense. Special teams will play a factor.

Robinson and Wright are expected to make the team after being drafted in the third and fourth rounds, respectively, but if they don't get comfortable in a hurry fielding punts, it could mean another season with Sherels in that position.

"At the end of the day, I've always told those guys ball security. I've preached that since I've been here, like most special teams coordinators do. Ball security is number one. We have to give the ball back to the offense," Priefer said. "If I don't feel comfortable or the head coach doesn't feel comfortable with putting a guy out there that I'm not sure if he's going to catch it or not, even though if he does catch it he might get a big play, I'll go with the guy who is going to be more secure. At the end of the day, we have to get the ball back at the end of that play."

NOTES

  • Robinson has handled what's been asked of him on defense without appearing to be rattled, and Priefer said he's been generally composed returning punts. "Josh doesn't get rattled by much. He's a pretty easygoing guy. It's about a 180 from me; I get a little uptight, especially on game day. His sense of urgency, I've learned, is higher than it looks," Priefer said.

  • CB Chris Cook won't play Friday night. He still hasn't been cleared to practice after suffering concussion-like symptoms in Friday's game.

  • Also not practicing for the Vikings on Tuesday were WR Kamar Jorden (hand), G Bridger Buche (unknown), G Geoff Schwartz (sports hernia) and TE John Carlson (knee).

  • LB Solomon Elimimian returned to practice on at least a limited basis after suffering a hamstring injury last week, but he isn't expected to play, according to head coach Leslie Frazier.

  • Frazier said offensive tackle DeMarcus Love "looked good" in his return from a shoulder injury and could see his first preseason action Friday against the San Diego Chargers.

  • The starters are expected to play one series into the third quarter.

  • Rookie kicker Blair Walsh had four touchbacks Friday night, but he also had a few kicks that bounced several times before being fielded. Those weren't intentional squib kicks, according to Priefer. "It was good for our kickoff team to react to that because that's going to happen at times. I've told Blair we don't need three out of nine (like that); we need maybe one out of 10 that's like that because he's going to try to stroke them and hit them hard and get down field and sometimes he's going to mishit them a little bit," Priefer said. "That was too many mishits the other day and he knows that. He will be more consistent. Obviously he has a big-time leg and I'm excited about him in that regard."

  • The Vikings covered goal-line, short-yardage and third-down situations in Tuesday's practice.

  • Frazier said the team is following more of a regular-season schedule this week in an attempt to get the young players used to implementing a game plan.
