  • Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Could take pay cut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Peterson (knee/groin) may be forced to take a pay cut to remain with the Vikings next season, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Peterson, who featured in just three games this season due to injuries, is entering the final season of his contract, which would currently see the Vikings owe him $17.75 million on Mar. 12, when his roster bonus and 2017 salary become guaranteed. Given that he only gained 72 yards on 37 carries this season, and will be 32 years old when next season starts, Minnesota is highly unlikely to reward Peterson with that pay day. As a result, Peterson could released and hit free agency, or he could renegotiate his contract by the aforementioned deadline to ensure he remains with the team. The latter option would require the former MVP to take a pay cut, and whether he accepts doing so should ultimately determine his future with the Vikings.

  • Peterson (knee/groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Chicago. This isn't a surprise since he didn't play last week and didn't practice this week. He may have played his last game for Minnesota since the team holds a non-guaranteed $18 million option for him next season.

  • Peterson (knee/groin) was held out of practice Wednesday. Peterson has mentioned in previous exchanges with the media that he wouldn't play if the Vikings were eliminated from playoff contention, which came to pass with Saturday's loss in Green Bay. Knee and groin injuries combined to keep Peterson on the sideline in that contest, and Wednesday's DNP isn't aiding his quest to (potentially) suit up for the season finale. If he does not, the Vikings will turn to the RB duo of Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata.

  • Peterson (knee/groin) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Packers. Peterson didn't practice this week after returning to play for the first time since Week 2 last Sunday. With knee and groin problems plaguing him, Peterson won't be available Saturday in Green Bay, and it remains to be seen whether he'll suit up for the Vikings' regular-season finale next weekend. As a result of him being unavailable, Minnesota promoted C.J. Ham from its practice squad, providing another option behind the tandem of Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata.

  • Vikings' Adrian Peterson: DNP on Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Peterson (knee/groin) didn't practice Thursday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. In his first game action Sunday since Week 2, Peterson received 12 offensive snaps, which he parlayed into six carries for 22 yards and one reception for one yard. Despite the sparse usage, he emerged with the usual bumps and bruises, namely to his knee and groin. According to Ben Goessling of ESPN.com, Peterson is following a "day-by-day" approach on a short week, but with a pair of DNPs under his belt so far, the running back has just one practice remaining to sway the coaching and training staffs.
