st, will join the U.S. Olympic team at the White House

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. . -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has resumed throwing with his sore shoulder.Coach Mike Zimmer has kept up his silence about Bridgewaters status.Bridgewater threw a few dozen short and medium-length passes in practice Tuesday, for the first time in front of reporters in a week. He didnt play in the preseason game at Seattle, and Zimmer has refused to discuss the injury. previously reported the shoulder problem, which Zimmer didnt confirm or deny.I told you guys when I first got here I would try to be as transparent and honest as I can. I will be, but there are certain things that Im not going to tell you, and if he had an issue with his shoulder then Im going to make sure that I err on the side of caution, Zimmer said. Because if I played him and he got hurt, you guys would be killing me in the press. So Im always going to protect the players. Im going to do what I think is best for the organization, and youre going to have to respect that.The curt, lecturing tone was aimed at the media members gathered for his post-practice news conference, but the irritant for Zimmer could well be rooted in concern about the health and depth of his quarterbacks.Bridgewater was in full pads during weekend practices, but he didnt attempt any passes. Backup Shaun Hill was also held out of those workouts, before returning to action Tuesday. Taylor Heinicke, the third-stringer last year, has been on the non-football injury list because of a severed tendon in his left foot. He was spotted Tuesday without a walking boot for the first time since training camp began.Undrafted rookie Joel Staves production as a passer at Wisconsin was unremarkable, but hed been taking turns with the first team in recent days. Brad Sorenson was signed Saturday to give the Vikings another arm, but he didnt even have his name sewn onto the back of his red jersey yet.This was originally slated as an off day for the players, but Zimmer switched the schedule to give them a break on Monday instead.I felt like the team was tired and they needed some time to get away, he said.The Vikings host San Diego on Sunday, the first game at U.S. Bank Stadium. Zimmer dismissed the importance of getting Bridgewater some snaps to stay sharp.Hes played an awful lot of games, Zimmer said. Its not like hes a first-year rookie.The offense would only benefit from Bridgewaters presence, though, and vice versa.We look to him as our leader, but we know that in this league with injury, people are not going to be out there sometimes, wide receiver Charles Johnson said. So we have guys on our offensive side and defensive side who have to step up and maintain that leadership role.Albeit a position of far less significance, tight ends are in ample supply for the Vikings.Rhett Ellison returned to action Tuesday for the first time since tearing the patellar tendon in his right knee in the last game of the 2015 regular season. He was a little ahead of schedule on his rehabilitation. With Kyle Rudolph, Mycole Pruitt and rookie David Morgan, theres a probability the Vikings will keep four tight ends on the 53-man roster once its established Sept. 3.Rhetts worked extremely hard, Zimmer said. Rhett is a great kid, team guy through and through. Its nice to get him back on the field.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: .

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Tommie Smith and John Carlos, the American sprinters whose raised-fist salutes at the 1968 Olympics are an ageless sign of race-inspired protest, will join the U.S. Olympic team at the White House next week for its meeting with President Barack Obama.Smith and Carlos were sent home from the Olympics after raising their black-gloved fists in a symbolic protest during the U.S. national anthem. They called it a human rights salute.USOC CEO Scott Blackmun asked them to serve as ambassadors as the federation tries to bring more diversity to its own ranks. They will join the team at the White House next Wednesday, then later that evening at an awards celebraation in Washington. The sprinters have been referenced frequently in the recent protests, spurred by Colin Kaepernick, during national anthems at NFL games. One player, Marcus Peters of the Chiefs, raised his own black-gloved fist before Kansas Citys season opener.I think Tommie and John have played an important and positive role in the evolution of our attitudes about diversity and inclusion, not only in the United States but around the world, Blackmun said Friday night at a dinner to celebrate the U.S. performance in Brazil this summer.
