|AP might be ready to start practicing by Sunday.|
When the Vikings placed Adrian Peterson on the Physically Unable to Perform list before Minnesota's training camp began, Peterson apparently “put up a fight” to try to change the team's mind. Now, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, the Vikings plan to take their heralded running back off the PUP list as early as Sunday and to practice him fully by Tuesday.
Anderson also reported that Peterson is scheduled to have limited participation during Sunday's walk-through practice.
After suffering a torn ACL and MCL in a meaningless Vikings game last December, Peterson has seemingly made a quick recovery. He was expected to be out of action for about nine months, meaning he was scheduled to be back by September, but in May, he was already outrunning some of his teammates.
"He's amazing," receiver Percy Harvin said then. "I told him the other day I don't think he's human."
He's human enough that coach Leslie Frazier forced him onto the PUP list last month. But he's also non-human enough possibly to return to the field about a month ahead of schedule.
