 Draft Scout Jerick McKinnon News
09/01/15 - RB Jerick McKinnon will be a nice complement to Adrian Peterson on third downs once the regular season begins. For now, with Peterson being rested in the preseason, McKinnon is the lead back on a running game stuck in first gear. He had 10 yards rushing on six carries (1.7) against the Cowboys.
08/24/15 - RB Jerick McKinnon had 25 yards on 12 carries as the lead back on Saturday night. The running game overall was atrocious with Adrian Peterson still resting throughout the preseason. The Vikings averaged 2.7 yards on 32 carries.
08/10/15 - RB Jerick McKinnon got the start Sunday in place of starter Adrian Peterson, who doesn't play in the preseason. The small, shifty and deceptively powerful back showed why the Vikings like him on one particular play. He caught a ball in the right flat, faked right, faked left and then went right as an oncoming linebacker whiffed. McKinnon then finished the 13-yard completion by running over a cornerback.
02/17/15 - RB Jerick McKinnon is still recovering from back surgery that cut his rookie season short, but he has nearly completed his rehab program. McKinnon, who will likely be the Vikings' starting running back if Adrian Peterson doesn't return to the team, told the Star Tribune that he tried to play through his back injury late in the season before he was finally placed on injured reserve. "It got to the point where it was just too bad, I guess," said McKinnon, who emerged as the Vikings' starter after Peterson was placed on the exempt list for child abuse. "It's been pretty good. It's been a long process, but that's just the way it goes after surgery. I've been here all offseason working really hard. I've just been in the training room with (assistant athletic trainer) Tom Hunkele pushing myself to the limit and just trying to get back ready. It's been a long grind but it's definitely working." McKinnon, who only has a couple of more weeks left before the rehab program is completed, is expected to be ready for offseason workouts beginning in April. McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014, totaling 538 rushing yards on 113 carries in 11 games, two of which he played with the nagging injury. He also had 27 catches for 135 yards, but was unable to record a touchdown either rushing or receiving. "I was happy with how the season went. It was a blessing, just being able to play in the NFL, a dream come true," he said. "I took it for what it was. I'm happy but I'm not content."
12/12/14 - RB Jerick McKinnon (back) is out of Sunday's game.
