News: Wright had one reception for seven yards in Saturday's preseason win over Dallas.
Impact: Wright got his work with the first-team offense, which should indicate he's won the job as the No. 3 receiver. Cordarrelle Patterson has struggled at times this preseason, so Wright will begin the season as the slot receiver between Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson.

News: Wright has been working as the slot receiver between Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson during training camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "The best things that Jarius did were when he was in the slot," coach Mike Zimmer said. "We keep working him outside, but we know he has big value for us in the slot as well."
Impact: Greg Jennings was used in the slot most of the time last season, so Wright will have more opportunity to move there this season. What's most notable about this report is that Wright appears ahead of Cordarrelle Patterson for the No. 3 wide receiver role on the depth chart as training camp begins.
