Vikings | T. Jackson to play with second-team offense Saturday

Judd Zulgad and Kevin Seifert, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings rookie QB Tarvaris Jackson will play with the second-team offense during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 19, despite being listed as fourth on the depth chart. Head coach Brad Childress said Thursday, Aug. 17, that Jackson will enter the game after QB Brad Johnson and the other starters play a quarter and a half. Jackson will play into the second half before being replaced by QB Mike McMahon. So is Jackson officially going to be moved to No. 2 on the depth chart, replacing McMahon? "He's No. 2, against Pittsburgh," Childress said. "Remember me saying to you guys that you have to evaluate quarterbacks with different people, different protection, and different receivers. I'm just attempting to see all the pieces." McMahon isn't concerning himself with the competition for the No. 2 job.
