Jerick McKinnon: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

McKinnon is fully recovered from the back injury that landed him on IR to finish the 2014 season, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

McKinnon, who underwent surgery to address the lower back issue that landed him on IR this past December, is close to completing his post-surgery rehab, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report indicates that McKinnon -- who recorded 538 rushing yards in 11 games this past season -- should finish up his post-surgery rehab program in a couple of weeks, with the running back relaying that he'll be ready to participate in the Vikings' offseason workout program (which begins in April) without any limitations. McKinnon's role in his second NFL season, however, hinges largely on Adrian Peterson's future with the team.
McKinnon (lower back) has been placed on injured reserve by the Vikings.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This will end McKinnon's season, with Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and Ben Tate on track to handle the team's rushing duties down the stretch. Per NFL.com, McKinnon, who currently leads the Vikings running backs corps in carries (113), rushing yards (538), and yards per carry (4.8), is slated to undergo a procedure on his back, which will entail an estimated recovery time of about eight weeks.
McKinnon (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, according to ESPN.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McKinnon did not practice all week after not playing last week. Matt Asiata will likely start with McKinnon out again with Ben Tate and Joe Banyard also getting some carries.
McKinnon (back) is not practicing again Friday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel reports.

McKinnon (back) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Vikings seem committed to ensure that McKinnon's lower back concern has subsided before allowing him to practice or play in a game. If he fails to take part in drills and garners another absence Sunday against the Jets, offensive coordinator Norv Turner has set a precedent with a pecking order of Matt Asiata, Ben Tate, and Joe Banyard, which was employed in Week 13.

2014

McKinnon's impressive measurables at the NFL Combine including 32 bench-press reps, which led all running backs, and a 4.37 40 time boosted his draft stock enough to entice the Vikings into utilizing a third-round pick to secure his services. After running for 2,867 yards and 32 touchdowns while splitting time between quarterback and running back (but mostly running back) his last two years at Georgia Southern, he should have a chance to beat out the singularly unexciting Matt Asiata for the right to back up Adrian Peterson. At 5-9, 208, McKinnon will likely have to bulk up some before he can handle every-down NFL duties and is very raw as a receiver, but he's a tremendous athlete who can make things happen with the ball in his hands.
