Viking injuries should open up reps for Hillsdale's Holmes

When the Minnesota Vikings take on the Seattle Seahawks tonight up in the town that gave us Pearl Jam, rookie undrafted free agent wide receiver Andre Holmes should get an opportunity to see some live action.

The Hillsdale College star is currently fighting for one of the last roster spots, a spot as the team's 4th or 5th receivers.

Right now it looks like Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrien, and Michael Jenkins are solid as the first three. Greg Camarillo who is looking for one of those two open spots will sit tonight along with Harvin as they nurse nagging camp injuries. This means that Holmes, Aymar Johnson, Emmanuel Arceneaux, Juaquin Iglesias, Dominique Johnson, Devin Aromashodu, and Stephen Burton will all have a chance to pick up more reps against the Seahawks.

Fox Sports North reported during the week that Holmes had one of the big catches of camp with a leaping touchdown reception over the top of a defender, of course Hillsdale football fans saw that most every week.
