Vikings Place Murray, Floyd On Injury Lists To Start Training Camp

MANKATO, Minn. (WCCO/AP) – The Minnesota Vikings placed running back Latavius Murray on the physically unable to perform list Monday, and put defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd on the non-football injury list.

Murray was signed away from Oakland for a three-year, $15 million deal as a free agent, with $8.55 million guaranteed. But he missed the entire offseason program following ankle surgery in March. The Vikings said they were aware he needed the surgery when they signed him.

Floyd missed all but the 2016 opener after having right knee surgery and then experiencing complications in his recovery. He has missed 20 games over the last three years.

Minnesota also placed rookie linebacker Shaan Washington on the PUP list.

Head coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday that quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is also expected to be placed on the physically unable to perform list. Bridgewater is still recovering from a devastating knee injury just before the start of the regular season last year. He has been seen throwing passes and moving around during organized team activities, and recently posted a video of himself going through a workout without the heavy leg brace he had been using.

Vikings rookies and select veterans reported to Mankato on Sunday. The rest of the squad reports on Wednesday, and the first full team workout is Thursday.
