Strong turnout at workouts

April 10th, 2009 – 7:20 PM by Chip Scoggins

The Vikings had nearly 95 percent attendance for the first week of their offseason conditioning program, and three players who are not present have very good reasons.

Cornerback Cedric Griffin, fullback Naufahu Tahi and defensive end Kenechi Udeze are all attending school in an effort to further their education.

Udeze, who is attempting to return after missing last season while he battled acute lymphoblastic leukemia, has been attending classes and working out at Southern California. He has said he plans to take part in practices that will be part of the Vikings Organized Team Activities starting next month.
