Vikings RB Latavius Murray carries big load on field and off

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The first sign in Minnesota of Latavius Murray's varied interests was visible even before he signed his contract with the Vikings last year.

This season, his responsibilities have reached a new high.

That starts at home, where he and his fiancee brought home a baby boy named Major last month. The extra burden has extended to Minnesota's backfield, where Murray has started three of the past four games for the injured Dalvin Cook. Last week, Murray rushed for a career-best 155 yards to help the Vikings beat Arizona .
