Asiata rushed just six times for 15 yards, and caught his lone target for four yards in Sunday's 22-10 win over the Panthers.

Asiata was the nominal starter in Minnesota's first game without Adrian Peterson (knee), but it was Jerick McKinnon (16 carries for 45 yards) that got the majority of the rushing workload. Given the veteran running back's lack of explosiveness, he won't be a very useful asset if he's not seeing much volume.
