Jerick McKinnon Wants to Be the Man in Minnesota

There were a lot of things Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon wasn't "supposed" to do, but after Adrian Peterson's indefinite suspension last season, McKinnon stepped up, rushing for 538 yards in six starts, including a breakout 135-yard performance in Week 4. After an offseason spent recovering from back surgery – and with AP back in the fold – McKinnon heads to Vikings camp determined to push Peterson for reps, and prove that last season wasn't a fluke.
