The late Dennis Green will be inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor during halftime of the Bills game on Sept. 23. Green is the lone inductee in 2018, a year after Minnesota named Randy Moss and Ahmad Rashad to the prestigious group (ROH will be up to 24 members now). Green coached 171 total games in 10 seasons with the Vikings, leading the team to four Central Division titles, the NFC Championship game twice and a 101-70-0 (.591) overall record, giving him the second-most wins in franchise history behind only Bud Grant (168).

From Day 2 of minicamp: Rookie Jayln Holmes, who has a broken right hand, was able to go through the motions on the blocking sled in practice, but was getting those air reps in at DE. He's expected to be ready for training camp, according to Mike Zimmer, when his transition to defensive tackle will pick back up.

Kirk Cousins said the two interceptions he threw in the red zone period were still bothering him when he left practice and doesn't want to go into the break on a low note: "Right now I'm pretty salty walking off the field. I'm really frustrated. I do not want to walk into the summer with a bad taste in my mouth about practice. Hopefully we can finish really strong tomorrow and be feeling good going into the summer. Even one bad decision in practice kind of bothers me all afternoon and I can be a bit of a grouch when I go home. That one bothered me. Adam (Thielen) was frustrated with a couple plays himself. He was sitting in his locker pouting with me so we were having a little pity party with each other just now before I came out here."

Vikings are alerting fans today that they've adopted mobile entry for home games, meaning all tickets will now solely be available digitally via a smart phone, iPad, etc. Nearly half of the ticket allotment is transferred for every game. The transition allows fans to transfer their tickets immediately via text or email. Since 2014, Minnesota began to move away from using printed tickets. Fans who don't have access to a mobile device are encouraged to call the Vikings ticket office to find a solution.

Vikings rookie Hercules Mata'afa tore his ACL during the team's second OTA of the week on Wednesday, according to reports from NFL Network and DraftAnalyst.com. Sounds like the injury occurred on special teams - an area where Mata'afa was thought to be a candidate to make a push for a roster spot. Minnesota moved the Washington State UDFA to linebacker (he was a DT in college) when he arrived for rookie minicamp in May before switching him to defensive end ahead of OTAs.

This week marks the first time Dalvin Cook has participated in 11 on 11 and other full-team drills this offseason. It's the first time he's been back on the field in an organized setting since he tore his ACL: "I've been feeling good but this week was another milestone in the rehab. Getting back out there with the team a little bit. This was a milestone for me just to get back out there and get some things done. I've been feeling great, though."
