Murray signed with Minnesota during free agency but needed ankle surgery (which he disclosed to the team before signing). The rehab sidelined him for the team’s offseason program and delayed his participation in practices until the final two days of training camp at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
“I’m feeling really good, was able to do a little bit more last week in practice, so I want to keep going on that trend and hopefully feel better each day,” Murray said. “I definitely like where I’m heading."

The Vikings shifted Murray from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List on Aug. 7, and he participated in individual drills that day and Aug. 8. He did not play in the Vikings preseason opener last Thursday at Buffalo but said on Tuesday that he is continuing to make progress. While Murray misses time, Cook continues to impress in his quest to win the RB1 job.
