Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) has been activated from the PUP list. He ended up missing about 2 weeks of camp -- on top of all spring workouts. In the meantime, rookie RB Dalvin Cook has seemingly seized the starting job. We'll see if Murray can make a move over the next month, but he's no more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts right now.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said he’s unsure when RB Latavius Murray (ankle surgery) will return to practice. "He is a smart guy but he needs to get healthy,” Zimmer said from training camp. Murray added that it’s “frustrating” to be a spectator at practice and would only say he’ll be ready to suit up for the season opener. Murray’s absence has allowed rookie Dalvin Cook to shine in early training camp sessions.

Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) has been placed on the active PUP list to begin training camp. He's eligible to be activated at any time. Still, he's behind the 8 ball after undergoing surgery on March 22 and missing all of offseason workouts. He needs to get on the field in a hurry if he wants to beat out rookie Dalvin Cook for the lead job.

Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) declined to guarantee that he'll be ready for the start of training camp. “The goal is just to try to be available during training camp at some point,” he said. “Right now, everything is pointing toward that. I’m just going to trust the process and not rush the process.” Murray underwent ankle surgery on March 22 and just got out of his walking boot this week. He still hasn't been cleared to run. Meanwhile, RBs Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon are soaking up reps. Murray can't afford to miss much training-camp time.

The Vikings announced that RB Latavius Murray underwent ankle surgery on Wednesday. The team was aware of the issue when it signed Murray to a 3-year, $15 million deal last week. We don't have any details on Murray's injury or the procedure, but the Vikings expect him to be back to 100% for the start of training camp. Still, missing OTAs and minicamp with his new team isn't ideal.

Injury Predictor

Murray won’t be ready for the start of training camp. He’s still recovering from minor ankle surgery he had done in March — but should be ready for the preseason. He fractured the same ankle in August of 2013 and missed the entire season. The bigger worry for Murray this season is that the Vikings drafted Dalvin Cook to take the lead role in their backfield.
