He has played in just seven games this season and has 417 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

In his absence, rookie Thomas Rawls rushed for over 100 yards in four separate games this season but broke his ankle in Week 14. Rawls was placed on injured reserve. Christine Michael and Bryce Brown have taken the majority of the carries since Rawls went down. Michael had 17 carries for 102 yards in last week's win over the Cardinals.

The Vikings and Seahawks play Sunday in Minnesota at 1 p.m. ET.
