Jarius Wright: ‘Everybody’s embracing their role’ on Vikings

Through 12 weeks, the Vikings are first in rushing yards and rushing average, second in rushing touchdowns and third in rushing attempts. Peterson, at age 30, has a league-high 237 carries (26 more than Carolina’s Jonathan...

WATCH: Pittsburgh Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons Flattens Vikings WR Jarius Wright

It came early in the game after a short pass reception by Vikings wide receiver Jarius...

Vikings Who Need to Make an Impact in 2014 | #10 Jarius Wright

#10 | Jarius Wright Number 10 on the list goes to wide receiver Jarius Wright. Wright came out strong during his rookie year in 2012 and many expected him to take an even bigger leap in 2013. Unfortunately he ended up only playing in 7 games and reeling in only 22 balls and 2 TDs. The Arkansas product should be in position to battle with Jerome Simpson for the 3rd receiver on...
