Vikings' Latavius Murray: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) returned to practice Sunday and he stood out in Red Zone situations, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He saw the cut that he had to make and he lowered his pads and accelerated into the tackler, which I thought was good," head coach Mike Zimmer said.

Murray hasn't played in a preseason game as he works his way back from offseason ankle surgery. While Dalvin Cook has likely won the starting running back job with an impressive preseason, Murray could still have a goal-line and third-down role.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell (leg) returned to practice Sunday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Treadwell has missed Minnesota's first two preseason games, but it sounds like he could play Sunday against San Francisco. He'll need to make a strong impression to win the No. 3 receiver role over Jarius Wright.

Vikings' Taylor Heinicke: Dealing with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heinicke has an undisclosed injury that isn't thought be much of a concern at the moment, Andrew Krammer of The Star Tribune reports.

The key takeaway is that Heinicke's injury doesn't appear to be serious. Heinicke likely won't have much of a fantasy impact this season given his status on the team's depth chart.

Vikings' Mitch Leidner: Signs contract with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leidner signed a contract with the Vikings on Sunday.

Leidner, who went undrafted out of the University of Minnesota this year, possesses ideal size at 6-foot-3 and 226 pounds. However, he was an erratic collegiate passer who might struggle to stick around in the pros.

Vikings' Andrew Sendejo: Participates in practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sendejo (undisclosed) was a limited participant at Sunday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

While there's understandable reason for concern given the limited information known surrounding the injury, the fact that Sendejo was back practicing spells good news for Minnesota. In all likelihood, the Vikings are taking a precautionary route to recovery for Sendejo considering his injury-riddled past, but it's important to keep an eye on one of the team's most important defensive pieces moving forward.
