Vikings RB Latavius Murray won't travel to Buffalo for preseason opener

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook looks on during training camp at Minnesota State University on July 26

As a result, the Vikings listed Cook as their first-team running back on their depth chart, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. But this most recent offseason, the Vikings felt it was better to part ways with their aging running back and Peterson went on to sign with the New Orleans Saints.

It's the type of player Cook seems destined to become. With Murray on the sidelines recuperating from his surgery, Cook has taken the lead in the running back battle (if you want to call it that) which has seemingly rubbed Murray the wrong way as he did feel like he was brought in to be what he was in Oakland, the lead back.

Neither player participated in team drills, and it remains to be seen whether either one will play during the Vikings' first preseason game at Buffalo on Thursday night, but the health of the two free agent pickups appears to be headed in the right direction.

"It's frustrating not being out there with the guys, " Reiff said. He deserves everything that he has right now. "I'm happy I'm out there today and moving forward".

"I don't see any elements of running back play that he can't be very good at and pass protection is one of them", offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said.

Murray said he didn't have any complications on the day after his first practice. It'll be nice, it was good to see him going through individual drills.

Dean Heller receives a primary challenger in Danny Tarkanian, a familiar candidate
Tarkanian calls himself a conservative Republican who supports Trump's policies to repeal Obamacare and end illegal immigration. Tarkanian announced his candidacy early Tuesday morning on Fox News, and followed up with a statement on his website .

He said that he's looking forward to getting more reps and "just kind of turning on that switch" back to football.

The Vikings will likely play both players throughout this season. "And we can't go into it scared".

Zimmer said it was hard to evaluate some aspects of the practice without full tackling, but noted that Cook fared well. "Maybe we learn from a year ago that that's the way we got to do it".

"I thought he was good [during Saturday night's practice, when the Vikings focused heavily on their running game, ]" Zimmer said.

"That's kinda how he is", said Zimmer.

The final practices of the 52nd and final Vikings training camp at Minnesota State will be held at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. today. Brian Robison took Griffen's spot with the first defensive line.
