Crocker, Coleman, Evans among Vikings cuts (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
One of the Minnesota Vikings' biggest question marks entering training camp was who was going to step in to start at the safety position opposite standout Harrison Smith. One month, four preseason games and two roster cutdowns later, the question remains. The Vikings released veterans Chris Crocker and Kurt Coleman and placed Jamarca Sanford, who started 41 games for them over the previous three seasons, on injured reserve on Saturday night, leaving them light on experience at safety as the season opener against St. Louis approaches. Longtime defensive lineman Fred Evans was also among the final cuts as the Vikings chose to go younger at defensive tackle behind starters Linval Joseph and Sharrif Floyd. Yahoo! Sat, Aug 30

Pro wrestling returns to the ring in North Korea (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
North Koreans got their first look at pro wrestling in about 20 years on Saturday when an ex-NFL lineman and 20 other grapplers from around the world took to the ring for an exhibition put together by a charismatic former Japanese pro-wrestler who is now a member of parliament. The exhibition was the first major sports event with big-name foreigners in the North Korean capital since Dennis Rodman and a team of other former NBA players staged a game in January for leader Kim Jong Un's birthday. Jang Ung, a member of the International Olympic Committee and the North Korean co-organizer of this weekend's event, opened the show Saturday with a speech denouncing the U.S. Yahoo! Sat, Aug 30
 
Realistic Vikings undefeated but still unsure (The SportsXchange) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
The Minnesota Vikings are confident, efficient and coming off the seventh undefeated preseason in franchise history. An NFL spokesman confirmed Friday that Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson's three-game suspension, based on a DUI arrest, will be upheld, meaning Simpson's appeal for a reduction was denied. Simpson, who had 48 catches for 726 yards and one touchdown last season, can return to the Vikings' active roster on Monday, September 22 following the team's September 21 game against the New Orleans Saints. Even before that suspension was confirmed, the Vikings already knew that history tells a story that plenty can go wrong after a good preseason. Yahoo! Fri, Aug 29
