Vikings RB Zach Line underwent shoulder surgery during his "redshirt" rookie season.

Line was placed on I.R. with a September knee injury, but took the opportunity to have his shoulder repaired. A favorite of measurables-based football metrics sites, Line stands 6-foot, 232 and ran 4.65 at his Pro Day. He's been compared to Mike Alstott. Line is a player to monitor during his first full NFL offseason as a potential in-house replacement for free agent Toby Gerhart at No. 2 tailback.

Vikings placed FB Zach Line on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Line's exact "injury" is unclear, though conveniently timed as it clears a roster spot for FB Jerome Felton, who comes off suspension Monday. An undrafted free agent, Line ends his rookie year having played 68 snaps.

Vikings signed SMU H-back Zach Line.

Line (6-foot 1/2, 232) earned 2012 C-USA Offensive Player of the Year honors as a senior and was a versatile workhorse in June Jones' spread offense throughout his career, rushing 778 times for 4,185 yards (5.38 YPC) and 47 touchdowns. He caught 75 passes. Line runs 4.77 with a 9-foot-3 broad jump, so he lacks explosive measurables. A hybrid fullback/tailback, Line may follow a similar career path to Brian Leonard.
