The Vikings have announced the key dates for this year's training camp, with the first practice on July 26.
Players will report to training camp at Minnesota State, Mankato on July 25.
The schedule is a typical one for the Vikings under head coach Leslie Frazier, where they normally start practices on the final Friday in July and don't have their first day off until the Sunday, nine days after the start of camp (that part of the schedule hasn't been announced yet).
The annual scrimmage under the lights of Blakeslee Stadium will take place Saturday, Aug. 3 and the team is scheduled to break camp on Aug. 15.
It is the 48th year in a row that training camp will be held in Mankato.
The rest of training camp schedule, including the times for the practices, will be announced at a later date.
