    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Even Erasmus James knows he's not back yet.

    The defensive end, and former first-round draft pick, will return to the field for the first time in nearly a year on Saturday when the Minnesota Vikings play at Seattle.....

    Defensive end Erasmus James doesn't know how many snaps he's going to get in Saturday's exhibition game at Seattle, but the Vikings' comeback kid is looking forward to the first...

    Great to have Erasmus back. We are gonna be ripping QB's up this year, and it starts with that big cry-baby in Seattle. He is gonna get clobbered. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets pulled early, as even the referee's want to sack that Meow-y.

    [size=13pt]Vikings: James motivated to rush back out[/size]

    Erasmus James returns to the field tonight, aiming to show his knee has healed and that he can contribute to a Vikings pass rush that was lacking without him.

    Karl Dunbar did a double-take as the Vikings went through a goal-line drill during Wednesday's practice. The defensive line coach had instructed right end Erasmus James to sit out, yet there he was in the thick of the action.....

    If EJ can get back to 100%, this has all the makings of a very good defense IMO. With Chad leading the way! Things appear to be coming together little by little. Questions remain in the QB and receiving depts.
