Vikings Rookie McKinnon Out Vs. Panthers

Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon will not play against Carolina on Sunday because of an injury to his lower back. McKinnon didn’t practice all week. He was listed as doubtful. The rookie said Friday his condition is nothing he “can’t play through,” but he confirmed he will be held out against the Panthers. That will mean more time in the backfield for Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and perhaps Ben Tate.

Injury Report: Vikings Running Backs Are Getting Banged Up

The Minnesota Vikings are thin on healthy running backs with Matt Asiata out and Jerick McKinnon banged up. McKinnon is expected to play with a lower back issue, but the team claimed Ben Tate off waivers as insurance. Sharrif Floyd’s status is the biggest question mark of any injury on the team. He banged knees with a teammate and was held out of practice because of it. The Vikings list 13 players on their injury report and the Green Bay Packers list eight on theirs.
