Peterson Returns To Practice For Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has returned to practice.

Peterson took part in individual drills Thursday. He has missed the last two games because of a sprained left ankle, but coach Leslie Frazier said this week that Peterson was getting “very close” to coming back.

The Vikings play at Detroit on Sunday.

Quarterback Christian Ponder has not yet been on the field this week after sustaining a right hip pointer in last Sunday’s game. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave says Ponder is still stiff and that the rookie “didn’t look too good” walking around.

  • He is back

    Things will be fine now and the Purple shall run the table, winning by 14 or more in every game! Hurray !!!!
    I heard AP had to be driven there though – that may be a sign of something we don’t know about.
    Amy Senser dropped him off – the good news is he was running like carazy for the door. Some said it was like he was running for his life almost.
