T-Jack likely starter
Tarvaris Jackson, who missed Sunday's 34-0 loss at Green Bay because of a concussion, is expected to return as the Vikings' starting quarterback for this week's game against Oakland.
"We kind of erred on the side of caution with Tarvaris," coach Brad Childress said. "It wasn't that he couldn't practice last week. … It's still my commitment to want to continue to develop him. I do feel like coming out of training camp he was the best quarterback so I would say it's probably going to end up being back to Tarvaris."
Jackson has missed four games this season because of a strained groin muscle, fractured right index finger and the concussion.
