Running as the Vikings' early-down back in the absence of Adrian Peterson, Matt Asiata rushed 11 times for 48 yards in Saturday's preseason game, adding two catches for 34 yards.
Third-rounder Jerick McKinnon operated as Asiata's change-of-pace back. The implication being, it would be Asiata who handles early-down duties were AD to go down with injury this season. Asiata now has 24 rushes for 80 yards (3.3 YPC) and one score this preseason. McKinnon is the far-more talented player, but for now Asiata's experience is winning out. Aug 24 - 12:25 AM
