The Associated Press reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said struggling backup QB Mike McMahon will not play in Thursday night's preseason finale, Aug. 31, at Dallas. O'Sullivan will play the fourth quarter. The coach wants to get a better look at QB J.T. O'Sullivan. Childress insisted the plan was not an indicator of McMahon's chances of making the team. "I think it speaks more that J.T. hasn't played in some of those games, or at least wasn't scheduled to play, and I just want to give him a full quarter to see what he can do," he said.

Kevin Seifert, of the Star-Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson appears to be beating out QB Mike McMahon for the No. 2 quarterback job. Jackson had a solid outing Saturday, Aug. 19, with the first- and second-teams while McMahon was benched midway through the fourth quarter. McMahon said of his performance, "I just wasn't comfortable out there. I probably need to relax and just trust the offense. ... It's just a thing where next time I'll have to do better. I can't worry or try to think about where I stand with [coaches] now."

Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings rookie QB Tarvaris Jackson made a strong bid to be the team's No. 2 quarterback Saturday, Aug. 19. Jackson got off to a quiet start in his team's 17-10 preseason victory over Pittsburgh, but the final numbers were impressive: 9-of-11 passing for 80 yards and a touchdown and a passer rating of 127.3. Compare that to the final stat line for QB Mike McMahon, who came on with 6:07 to play in the third period and went 1 for 7 for 42 yards, an interception and a passer rating of 12.5. Is Jackson officially pulling away from McMahon in the No. 2 quarterback race? "I wouldn't say put some distance, but his play speaks for itself," head coach Brad Childress said. "He's played very well the last couple of weeks." As for McMahon, Childress said: "I don't think you necessarily take the numbers for what they were. However, you have to (protect) the football. You'd rather throw it up in the stands than throw it to them."

Asked what this might mean for O'Sullivan in the third preseason game next Friday, Aug. 25, against Baltimore, Childress was noncommittal.

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.
