Rehabbing Adrian Peterson Spotted Sprinting During Vikings Practice, ‘Probably Ahead of Schedule’
Do the Minnesota Vikings need Adrian Peterson in the lineup? Yeah, like Justin Trudeau needs better eulogy judgment.
The Vikings still possess one of the league’s nastiest defences, but they’ve lost five of their past six and, at 6-5, have fallen from top spot in the NFC North, in large part because their offence is in dire need of a run-game boost.
Peterson, the most breathtaking NFL running back this century, surely would provide that.
He has been sidelined since Week 2 after tearing the meniscus in his right knee in a win over Green Bay. The club placed him on injured reserve, hoping he could return in December before season’s end.
On Tuesday morning, reporters spotted Peterson running short sprints off to the side as the team practised.
“Head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman watched closely before the two walked inside toward the locker room,” the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
