Teams across the NFL are preparing to ramp up for the 2022 regular season with the start of training camp. The Minnesota Vikings are one of the last squads to take the field as the preseason nears.
Here's everything Vikings fans need to know about training camp this year.
When Does Minesota Vikings Training Camp Start?
Each team has two separate start dates for training camp, as rookies are often required to report a few days before veterans. The Vikings have one of the later starts of teams across the league, with rookies reporting on Sunday, July 24.
Then, on Tuesday, July 26, Minnesota's veterans are mandated to report for training camp. This gives just over two weeks to prepare for the team's first preseason game on Aug. 14.

Vikings Training Camp News
With the way things are shaping up, Ihmir Smith-Marsette is slated to be the Vikings' No. 4 wide receiver in 2022. However, there's been some concern around the 22-year-old after a leg injury held him out of Minnesota's minicamp last month.
While there haven't been any major updates since then, the good news is that there haven't been any negative ones either. All signs point to him being ready for training camp and he should be more than available for Week 1 of the 2022 NFL campaign.
