Vikings' John Sullivan: Back injury no issue heading into training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sullivan said he'll be ready for training camp after his back made it through spring practices without any major problems, ESPN reports.

Sullivan missed all of the 2015 season due to a back injury that required surgery. He'll likely reclaim his starting center job and his return will bolster a unit that could feature nine lineman who have started all 16 games in a season at one point in their career.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Draws praise from offensive coordinator
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner raved about Treadwell's instincts and fluidity running routes in spring practices, and he could be a focal point with the offense using him in skinny post routes similar to how he was used in college, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "That was our offense - quick routes and running across the middle," Treadwell said. "Drags. Slants. Bang 8s. Comeback routes. It's similar."

Treadwell may be utilized in the skinny post, or in the middle-of-the-field routes in front of a safety that have been a hallmark of Turner's successful offenses in the past. Turner doesn't go into many specifics about his plans, but the article talks to those who know his offense well and who opine that Treadwell could have a featured role that brings a new dynamic to the Minnesota offense. However he's used, the first-round draft pick seems to have made a strong impression in spring practices.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Primed for larger role in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McKinnon could see an increased role in the passing game during 2016, the Vikings' official site reports.

The third-year tailback recorded just 27 and 21 receptions during his first and second seasons, respectively, but was noticeably more involved in Minnesota's offensive attack during the final five weeks of 2015. Across said stretch, McKinnon corralled at least three balls on three separate occasions. Prior to that, McKinnon had gathered just eight receptions across 11 total games. With fellow RB Adrian Peterson the unquestioned centerpiece of this offense, McKinnon may not see many more opportunities on the ground than he did last year (52), but if he can remain as involved in the passing game as he was to end the 2015 campaign, McKinnon could conceivably surpass 100 total touches in 2016, should he stay healthy.

Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Expects a full recovery by training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ellison (knee) anticipates a full recovery by training camp, the Twin Cities-Pioneer Press reports.

Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in last year's season finale against the Packers, but hasn't reported any setbacks in his recovery and anticipates being 100 percent for training camp. He enters camp firmly behind Kyle Rudolph and MyCole Pruitt on the depth chart.
