Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- They blocked the way to one of the greatest seasons ever turned in by a running back and they're back this season. The entire Vikings offensive line returns for 2013.

Which, includes center John Sullivan and guard Phil Loadholt, the two senior members of the o-line.

They have the most experience up front and that factor is being counted on by the coaching staff for them to be even better in 2013.

Leslie Frazier- Vikings Head Coach: "I was hoping he would take more of a leadership role because we were trying to develop that on our offensive line. With a young left tackle, a new left guard at the time, a new right guard at the time and then there's Phil(Loadholt), so we needed, between him and Phil, to step up and Sully did. Phil has also."

Phil Loadholt- Vikings Right Tackle: "We've talked sparingly about it, no sit down, it's understood me and Sullivan being here for so long we take that responsibility and do the best we can at it."

Loadholt has only missed one game in his first 3 NFL seasons.
