Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) should be 'available during training camp at some point'

Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

Vikings running back Latavius Murray is keeping his goals modest as he recovers from ankle surgery.

Murray had his walking boot removed Tuesday, 10 weeks following March 22 surgery on his right ankle, and was able to walk around freely Wednesday during an organized team activities session. Murray was asked afterward if he anticipates being 100 percent when training camp begins in late July.

“The goal is just to try to be available during training camp at some point,” Murray said. “Right now, everything is pointing toward that. I’m just going to trust the process and not rush the process.”

Fantasy Impact:

This doesn't sound like good news. Signs are pointing to rookie Dalvin Cook opening the season as the Vikings' starter. The Vikings had major problems running the ball last season, but they have revamped the offensive line and are poised for improvement. The early-fifth-round price tag for Cook seems reasonable.
