Latavius Murray has agreed to a contract restructure.
Murray was due $5.15 million on Friday, an amount Minnesota had been reluctant to pay, but it appears the sides came to a compromise. The 28-year-old rolled to eight touchdowns in his first year with the Vikings but should see his role scaled back this season with Dalvin Cook returning from ACL surgery. Mar 16 - 1:17 PM

Jerick McKinnon (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 5.

It's big news, as it means there will officially be a committee in Dalvin Cook's absence. Latavius Murray will grind between the tackles on early downs, and McKinnon will catch passes/try to change the pace. Ineffective for the Raiders last season, Murray has also had an extremely slow recovery from ankle surgery. It's possible McKinnon eventually pushes him in short-yardage situations. McKinnon comes with more long-term upside, though Murray's short-term floor is higher.

Dalvin Cook is officially listed as the Vikings' starting running back.

Latavius Murray barely practiced this summer, leaving an opening for second-rounder Cook. He burst through it, turning 23 preseason touches into 105 yards. Cook continually impressed in practice. He opens the year as an RB2 with RB1 upside.

Latavius Murray admitted rookie Dalvin Cook is ahead of him in the Vikings’ running back competition.

"Dalvin's already been through OTAs, he's been through the offseason. So, he has that up on me," Murray said. Murray missed the entire spring recovering from surgery and is unlikely to be ready for the start of training camp. The missed time makes Cook the favorite to start Week 1. The Minneapolis Star Tribune expects Murray to open the season as the Vikings’ short-yardage back.
