Jerick McKinnon carries the load in Week 12

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer gave rookie running back Jerick McKinnon a vote of confidence this week, and followed it up by giving him the bulk of the work in Week 12's 24-21 loss to the Packers Sunday.

McKinnon received 15 of the team's 25 carries Sunday, and little-used reserve Joe Banyard was the only other running back to touch the ball Sunday, receiving just five carries. McKinnon didn't have a great game against a tough defense, rushing for just 54 yards, but the fact that he was the go-to option should be a good sign on its own.

Of course, McKinnon was helped by Matt Asiata's absence and Ben Tate's lack of knowledge of the offense, so we'll see how he is used moving forward. McKinnon has been the team's best back since Adrian Peterson's suspension began, and it's not like Tate or Asiata have done much to inspire confidence.

McKinnon should continue to see plenty of playing time moving forward, but his value might still have a ceiling, given how little faith the team seems to have in him near the goal line. Keep an eye on reports about the team's plans heading into Week 13 against the Panthers. .  

Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon held in check Week 12

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon was held in check Week 12 against the Packers.

McKinnon gained 54 yards on 15 carries during the contest. He also caught three passes, gaining 9 yards. The Packers seemed pretty content to force quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to beat them. As such, the team was able to stop McKinnon before he could really get going. While the game remained close, Minnesota didn't really pound the rock.

McKinnon will look for more Week 13 against the Panthers. 

Greg Jennings, Jerick McKinnon ready to go for Vikings

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) The Vikings will have both Greg Jennings and Jerick McKinnon Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings came into the contest listed as questionable with a rib injury. He'll give it a go against his former team. McKinnon was listed as probable with a back injury. 

The team will also have Anthony Barr, Scott Crichton, Everson Griffen, Michael Harris, Captain Munnerlyn, Xavier Rhodes and Kyle Rudolph. All seven came into the game listed as probable, and were always expected to play.

Both Matt Kalil and Jarius Wright will also attempt to play. They were both listed as questionable. Kalil has a knee injury, while Wright is dealing with a hamstring issue. 

Eight probables pepper injury report posted by Vikings

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/14) A first glance at the injury report produced Friday by the Vikings for their Week 12 game against Green Bay might lead one to believe that many will be among the missing. But a closer look reveals eight probables among the 13 players listed.

That group includes seven who are ailing. They are running back Jerick McKinnon (lower back), offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), defensive ends Scott Crichton (hip) and Everson Griffen (neck) and tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin).

Norv Turner says Jerick McKinnon is 'our running back'

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/14) Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner clarified the team's backfield situation Thursday, and it was good news for rookie Jerick McKinnon. Turner said the team claimed running back Ben Tate because of injuries at the position and that Tate was not brought in to take McKinnon's job.

"Obviously, we're in a situation where [Wednesday] we had one back that could practice, so the timing of [Tate] being released and the opportunity for us to add a back, certainly it was good timing," Turner told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"We're excited about Jerick and what he's done, and I see him as our running back," Turner added.

McKinnon did not practice Wednesday due to a back injury, but is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against the Packers. Running back Matt Asiata's status is in doubt after he suffered a concussion Week 11, Turner told the paper.
