Matt Cassel has started the Minnesota Vikings training camp as the starting quarterback....

     MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Matt Cassel has started the Minnesota Vikings training camp as the starting quarterback.   As coach Mike Zimmer said again today, prior to the first full practice, that does not mean Cassel will automatically keep the same status for the season opener.
 
     The Vikings have more than six weeks to evaluate this critical position, and rookie Teddy Bridgewater in particular will be under scrutiny. After drafting him in the first round, the Vikings have said often they're unafraid to start a first-year player.
 
     The carousel spun frequently last season, from Christian Ponder at the beginning to Cassel at the end. After a decade of quarterback chaos, the Vikings are hoping to finally create some stability there.

     MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have placed cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, safety Andrew Sendejo and tight end Chase Ford on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp.
 
     Ford is in a cast with a broken left foot and will be out indefinitely. Munnerlyn has a minor hamstring injury. Sendejo is dealing with nagging lower-back and ankle problems. Players on the PUP list during the preseason can be taken off at any time, and they count against the 90-man roster. They can't practice until they're medically cleared.
 
     The Vikings also signed wide receivers Andy Cruse and Ty Walker today and waived wide receiver Josh Cooper and offensive tackle Matt Hall. Cruse was on Houston's practice squad last year and Walker spent time on both Green Bay's and Seattle's practice squads.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Mike McCarthy isn't averse to changing things up in his ninth year coaching the Green Bay Packers.   After two injury-filled seasons, an alteration is coming to how Green Bay prepares for games.
 
     The practice schedule is changing, with players getting an off day, then running through practice the day before a game. That's the reverse of how things were done last season. The change starts in the preseason.   McCarthy said today it was the first time he had changed the schedule in his tenure. He describes it as a philosophical shift.
 
     Green Bay won a third straight NFC North title last year. The season will also be remembered for a swath of injuries, including the broken collarbone that sidelined quarterback Aaron Rodgers for nearly two months.

     BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - Jared Allen insists it's about more than just one player when it comes to Chicago Bears and their defense.   Never mind that he was the big prize, the shiny new centerpiece in an offseason rebuild.
 
     For a team aiming high after finishing 8-8 a year ago, there is no bigger symbol of hope than the 6-foot-6, 270-pound defensive end. And that symbol was on display today as the Bears conducted their first training camp practice.   Allen says the "collective whole" and the "energy of each individual" will determine how well the defense performs this season after struggling a year ago.
