Murray was signed during an offseason which saw the Vikings let Adrian Peterson go. The team also drafted Dalvin Cook, who is expected to be the team’s lead running back.
Murray, who signed a three-year, $15 million deal with Minnesota, has been recovering from ankle surgery that kept him out of offseason activities and the beginning of training camp. He has some ground to make up in the team’s running back race.
