McKinnon returns to practice, Kendricks still out

By Matthew Coller

Good news for interim offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur: The Minnesota Vikings may be getting their explosive running back Jerick McKinnon back in the lineup.

McKinnon was participating in practice on Thursday, which is a good sign for his prospects to play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions at US Bank Stadium.

On the bad news side, guard Alex Boone was not working out with the team. He suffered a concussion against the Bears.

Also the Lions have an offense that includes lots of screens and throws to the running back and Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks has been key in shutting down such passes this year for Minnesota. Kendricks was not practicing for the second straight day with a concussion. Pass rushing defensive tackle Tom Johnson was back on the field.

The post McKinnon returns to practice, Kendricks still out appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
