Kevin O’Connell: My expectation is that Jordan Addison will be full go for training camp

Mike Florio and Chris Simms explore why Justin Jefferson doesn’t have reason to worry about his next contract, given how important he is to the Vikings offense.

Vikings first-round pick Jordan Addison was dealing with an undisclosed minor injury during the offseason program, which kept him sidelined from the team’s practices.

But last week, head coach Kevin O’Connell said Addison should be OK when the Vikings reconvene for training camp.

“We’ve had a plan in place for him and continuing to kind of build up to where he’ll be,” O’Connell said in his Tuesday press conference. “He’ll be spending quite a bit of time continuing his playbook. He’s been phenomenal in meetings and out here asking great questions when they come up.

“But my expectation is that Jordan will be full when we get going in late July.”

Addison was the 23rd overall pick in this year’s draft and could emerge as quarterback Kirk Cousins’ No. 2 option behind Justin Jefferson in the coming season. He caught 59 passes for 875 yards with eight touchdowns last year at USC.
