Boone carried the ball 10 times for 41 yards and found the end zone in the Vikings' third preseason game against the Cardinals on Saturday. He also added one reception for six yards.
Boone was the most productive back on the team besides Dalvin Cook, highlighted by a 20-yard gain towards the end of the third quarter. He also added a seven-yard rushing touchdown to put the Vikings ahead for good one quarter later. While still situated behind Alexander Mattison, Boone's status on the team could depend on what the team decides to do with previously touted Ameer Abdullah.
Boone had 21 carries for 66 yards in Sunday's preseason win over Seattle.
Boone has had two strong preseason games, which should help his case considering he's on the roster bubble. He's in the battle for the No. 3 RB role, but Ameer Abdullah likely has an edge for a roster spot due to his role as the kick returner. Still, it seems likely Boone will secure a reserve running back role.
Boone will face extra competition for Minnesota's backup running back role from 2019 third-round draft pick Alexander Mattison.
Boone looked set to compete with Roc Thomas and Ameer Abdullah for the backup role to Dalvin Cook. However, the addition of Mattison means Boone could be fighting for a roster spot this summer as the Vikings may keep only three running backs on the roster.
Boone carried 11 times for 47 yards and caught two passes for one yard over eight games this season.
Boone had a minor offensive role during the first half of the season when Dalvin Cook was sidelined with a hamstring injury, but saw action in only one of the final seven games. The undrafted running back had a quiet but solid rookie campaign, considering he managed to maintain a spot on the 53-man roster for the entire season. The 23-year-old will hope to push for the No. 2 job behind Cook as Latavius Murray is headed for free agency in 2019.
Boone played just three snaps in Sunday's win over Detroit, all on special teams.
With Dalvin Cook back from a hamstring injury, both Boone and Roc Thomas will be almost exclusively limited to special teams.

Boone had one carry for one yard on his only snap on offense in Sunday's win at Philadelphia.
Roc Thomas played 14 snaps on offense as the backup to Latavius Murray with Dalvin Cook out with a hamstring injury. However, it doesn't look like Boone or Thomas will have much of a role in the offense even with Cook hurt.
Boone had one reception for one yard on his only target in Thursday's loss at the Rams. He played four snaps on offense but did not have a carry.
Both Roc Thomas and Mike Boone were used on offense in the game even with Dalvin Cook returning from a hamstring injury. However, neither Thomas nor Boone will get more than a few plays on offense as the third and fourth running backs.

Boone was originally questionable with a minor groin injury as a late addition to Friday's injury report, but the undrafted rookie has a relatively clear path to his first NFL touches with starter Dalvin Cook (hamstring) sidelined this week. Boone is slated to work alongside fellow reserve Roc Thomas behind veteran Latavius Murray, who figures to see a bulk of the work out of Minnesota's backfield. If the Vikings live up to the hype as heavy favorites, however, Boone and Thomas could see their roles increase as the game progresses in order to preserve the health of Murray while lending the rookie rushers additional opportunities.
