Peterson will not Play 22 Aug 12

Don’t look for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to play this preseason. Head coach Leslie Frazier says Peterson will be kept out of exhibition games as he continues to work his way back from major knee surgery. Peterson came off the Physically Unable To Perform list last week and Frazier indicated then that he might play in the team’s third preseason game on Friday night at home against San Diego. Instead, the Vikes will take the cautious approach and try and get Peterson ready for their September 9th season opener against Jacksonville.
