    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed seven times for 89 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the New York Giants. He added two catches for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon filled the change-of-pace role to a T Sunday night, though much of that stat load came on one long touchdown run after the game was in hand and Adrian Peterson was safely encased in bubble wrap on the sidelines.

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon could see some playing time on third downs with RB Adrian Peterson returning as the starting running back.

    Huddle Up: Last season McKinnon had 140 touches and backfield mate Matt Asiata had 208, but Peterson never has had fewer than 308 touches in any of his last five full or near-full seasons, so don't expect to get much fantasy use out of either McKinnon or Asiata this coming season.

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is fully recovered from back surgery and has left for Southern California to train. He is preparing as though he will be a starting running back but acknowledged the job belongs to Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, provided Peterson returns to the team. McKinnon noted that he needs to learn how to help keep his body healthy. He is working on improving upper-body strength and his endurance, while also trying to better his pass-protection skills.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon rushed for a modest 538 yards in 11 games as a third-round rookie last season but did average 4.8 yards per carry and likely would be counted on as the main man if Peterson doesn't return. We say "likely" because the Vikings could add another back in the deep RB draft if AD does depart. All in all, a still a lot of "ifs" here so stay tuned ...

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is close to completing his post-surgery rehab on his back. There have been no setbacks, and McKinnon says he will be ready to participate without any limitations in the offseason workout program, which can begin April 20. McKinnon plans on improving his overall game, but will place an extra emphasis on getting stronger so he can survive a full season of pounding between the tackles, and also pass protection, an area of his game that was subpar in 2014.

    Huddle Up: It's unlikely the Vikings are banking on McKinnon as an every-down back, but if they opt to move on from Adrian Peterson and cobble the running back position together again this season there will definitely be roles for McKinnon to fill.
