Murray had ankle surgery performed by Dr. Robert Anderson on March 22, 2017. The team announced that they expect him to fully recover and be ready for the open of training camp. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that the surgery was to remove bone spurs.

Summary

On top of the Vikings drafting Dalvin Cook they added Latavius Murray from the Raiders who is coming off a 788 rushing yards and 12 touchdown season. Murray has been dealing with an ankle injury but is hopeful to be ready by the time camp starts and should be in a battle with Cook for playing time. Murray signed a three-year contract with the Vikings this offseason and appeared to be their primary ball carrier but that got turned upside down when the Vikings invested in Cook. (May 22)
