Vikes set to face former teammates


SEATTLE (KTTC/AP) -- Tarvaris Jackson was jerked around enough during his five seasons in Minnesota that it's understandable he craves a good performance against his former team.

Even if it's just the preseason.

Jackson, Seattle's new starting quarterback, along with wide receiver Sidney Rice and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will get an early look at their old team on Saturday night when the Seahawks and Minnesota meet in the second preseason game for both.

Jackson played just the first quarter last week in San Diego and did so without Rice or fellow starting wide receiver Mike Williams on the field. All three are expected to play Saturday, likely most of the first half.

That'll be plenty of time for Jackson to try to give the Vikings a glimpse of what they let go.
