The Minnesota Vikings activated running back Latavius Murray from the physically unable to perform list, the team announced Monday.
Murray was sidelined while recovering from offseason ankle surgery.
The 27-year-old was expected to practice on Monday with Minnesota for the first time since signing a three-year, $15 million deal — $8.55 million guaranteed — as a free agent in March. He missed all of the offseason practices and the first 10 days of training camp while rehabilitating his surgically repaired right ankle.
Murray is expected to compete for carries with second-round draft pick Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon. Murray was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015 after rushing for 1,066 yards and six touchdowns with the Oakland Raiders. He has rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns (12 in 2016) in 45 games (31 starts).
