Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: I want to be the starter if AP is not here
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon the St. Paul Pioneer Press earlier this week that he wants to be the top back if Adrian Peterson is not back in Minnesota for the 2015 season.

"If A.P. comes back, there's no doubt he's going to be the starter," McKinnon said. "But it's not going to change my mind-set or how I approach things or how I work. Whatever they do, my mind-set is to come in and be that guy next year.

"There's no doubt in my mind I can last the season," McKinnon said. "If that's something I have to prove, that's not a big deal for me. I'll prove it this year. I'm just really excited to get back out there with my teammates and coaches and show how far I've come since surgery."

McKinnon, 22, underwent back surgery in early December that cut his rookie season short. In 2014, he rushed for 538 yards on 113 attempts through 11 games.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon has nearly completed his rehab after having back surgery that cut his rookie season short. 

"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," McKinnon said to the Star Tribune. "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 is expected to be ready for offseason workouts, beginning in April.

He averaged 4.8 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014, totaling 538 rushing yards on 113 carries. He also had 27 catches for 135 yards, but was unable to record a touchdown either rushing or receiving.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon, who missed the final five games of the season with a lower back injury, said he is feeling much better following surgery in early December and should be ready for the start of organized team activities in May, per ESPN. 

Running backs coach Kirby Wilson said Friday he feels McKinnon can be a featured back in the NFL, and he could be the team's primary running back in 2015, if Adrian Peterson doesn't return next season. 

"I can’t really say what’s going to happen," McKinnon said. "Nobody knows. It’s the NFL, things change. All I can do is work hard and come OTAs, come back out here and compete and show the coaches I can still do what I can."

McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014, totaling 538 rushing yards on 113 carries. He also had 27 catches for 135 yards, but he has no rushing or receiving touchdowns.
