Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon made a great impression during his debut season in 2014 before his season ended due to injury. Now that McKinnon’s a year into his career and knows the offense better, OC Norv Turner says McKinnon looks even faster than a year ago.
“Jerick, really looks faster than a year ago, because he’s real confident in what he’s doing,” Turner said. “He’s 100 percent healthy and he’s flying around. He really gives you a nice dimension, a changeup.”
McKinnon will vie for touches behind Adrian Peterson. He's likely to see the biggest workload if something were to happen to Peterson, though Matt Asiata would also be in the mix.
