Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Ruled out of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson is expected to sit out the rest of the Vikings' preseason games, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

While coach Mike Zimmer indicated recently that he'd leave the door open for Peterson to play this week, the two sides came to an agreement Thursday that it was in their best interest to keep him sidelined for the rest of the preseason schedule. Peterson is expected to go through practices like normal, but the Vikings want to play it safe with their star running back and will avoid further risks to his health. With that said, Peterson isn't in danger of missing Week 1.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Still expected to get heavy workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is expected to get a similar workload to previous seasons with Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner hoping to get Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata more work due to the offense running more plays, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Turner said he hasn't seen any signs of Peterson slowing down at age 31. It sounds like the team still expects to give him a heavy workload (he's averaged 19.8 per game in his career). The Vikings haven't said whether Peterson will play in Sunday's preseason game, but they've left the door open that he could appear in the first game at the team's new home stadium. Either way, he appears healthy after missing some early training camp practices with a sore hamstring.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Could play in preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson did not play in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. However, head coach Mike Zimmer left the door open for Peterson to play in the next preseason game, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Peterson hasn't had a carry in a preseason game since 2011, so it's still unlikely he'll get any work before the regular season begins, as the Vikings like to play it safe with the focus of their offense. Peterson was bothered by a sore hamstring early in camp, but he's been fully practicing and it doesn't sound like an issue for the regular season.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason opener against the Bengals, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Peterson arrived at training camp nursing a lingering hamstring pull and was held out for most of the first week of camp as a result. He's been practicing of late, but there's no need for the Vikings to rush him back into game action prematurely. Minnesota may ultimately opt to keep Peterson on the sideline until the team's regular season schedule kicks off on Sept. 11 against Tennessee.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Settling into practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (hamstring) practiced for the third straight day Friday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Peterson entered training camp with a lingering hamstring pull and was held out most of the first week. However, he's back in action and there's even been talk of him playing in a preseason game. He looks fine for the start of the regular season, but it's worth monitoring the health of the 31-year-old.
