Hold the blitz

Leslie Frazier played in a blitzing defense with the Chicago Bears and helped coach one with the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Vikings' new defensive coordinator hopes he doesn't have to get too blitz-happy this season.

"I don't want to use the word big on blitzes," Frazier said. "I think there's an appropriate time for blitzes and some of that has to do with your personnel in the back row. ... I would prefer that we could rush four and play Cover 2 all day long, if it were up to me, but it doesn't always happen that way."

Frazier, asked if cornerback Antoine Winfield's absence from this week's voluntary practices is a concern, said not at this time.

"I know when he gets here, he's going to do a great job for us," Frazier said. "So at this point, no. Not at all."
