Vikings rookie running back Roc Thomas is fighting for a roster spot, and he made a good case for himself in the team’s preseason debut against the Broncos.

Thomas caught two touchdowns, including this 78-yard screen pass from quarterback Trevor Siemian.

Thomas ended the game with eight rushes for 29 yards and three catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns.

He’s currently listed as the team’s fourth running back behind Dalvin Cook, Latavius Murray and Mack Brown. That likely won’t be enough for him to earn a roster spot, but if he shows more of this, he’ll force the coaches to make a decision.
