Vikings RB Jerome Felton (knee, probable) practiced fully Wednesday.

It’s a fair question considering the Browns, whose offense Turner coordinated last season, used two-back formations on just 5.2 percent of their snaps in 2013, according to Pro Football Focus. That was one of the lowest figures in the league, though the Browns didn’t exactly have a bruiser like Felton -- or any established fullback for that matter -- and they also played from behind a lot.
The Vikings used two backs on 24.1 percent of their snaps a season ago. That’s why Turner is saying that the Felton should still have a role here.
“He is going to have to block and block,” Turner said. “We talked the other night to our team, we need to have a physical presence. Jerome brings that type of presence, and we are still going to have a certain percentage of two backs in the backfield, or spread out with the two backs in the backfield, that personnel group, if it gives the team problems. ... I think that there’s game situations where you need to have a fullback that can go pound it a little bit.”
The fantasy news here is Felton could help pave the way for Adrian Peterson.
