Mon, 06 Aug 2012 20:18:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier stopped short of naming OL Brandon Fusco his starting right guard, but things are looking good since OL Geoffrey Schwartz (hernia) might miss four to 10 weeks after having sports hernia surgery.

"I'm going to be a lot smarter player, but stay on the physical side," Fusco said. "I've got to be smarter, or I won't be here for long."

"Typically, we would've been in workouts since March, which would run to the middle of June or end of June."
