EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings plan to sign running back Lorenzo Booker.

Interim coach Leslie Frazier confirmed the decision Monday, with the team still mulling a corresponding roster move.

Booker played this season in the United Football League for the Hartford Colonials, leading the league with an average of 5.4 yards per carry. He was a third-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins out of Florida State in 2007 and played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008.

With Adrian Peterson playing on a sprained ankle and backup Toby Gerhart hurting his hamstring in Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, the Vikings could use depth at running back. Frazier says he believes Booker can help the team right away, particularly on third-down situations.
