Vikings RB Joe Banyard rushed six times for 20 yards and caught an 11-yard pass in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Bears.
He saw increased late-season playing time due to Adrian Peterson's suspension and Jerick McKinnon's year-ending back injury. Banyard ended 2014 with 21 rushes for 88 yards and nine receptions. Banyard is a capable backup, but there are no indications the Vikings see him as more than that, keeping Banyard behind plodding Matt Asiata on the depth chart. Banyard will likely return to compete for a roster spot in 2015. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:41:00 PM
