RB Mur­ray side­lined

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL/NFL -

MANKATO, Minn. — 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.
