Duluth native C.J. Ham took a handoff from backup quarterback Case Keenum and surged into the end zone for a 2-yard score against the Pittsburgh Steelers today. It was Ham’s first regular season touchdown in the National Football League, on his first carry. The Vikings lost the game 26-9.
A 2011 Denfeld High School grad, Ham broke into the NFL in 2016 as a tailback and scored a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason opener.
He was briefly on the Vikings active roster that year, but did not play in a regular season game.
This year Ham has seen action as a fullback in each of the Vikings first two regular season games. He also scored a touchdown in the 2017 preseason against the Buffalo Bills.
Here’s a feature on Ham by Midco Sports Magazine from Aug. 7.
