Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Limited with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson did not fully participate in training camp Friday due to an undisclosed injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He tweaked himself a little bit in the offseason. He's going to be fine," said head coach Mike Zimmer. "He did the conditioning test today. We're just being careful with him."

Peterson was able to run light sprints and participated in a walk-through of a play on offense, so the injury doesn't sound serious. Still, monitor his progress early in training ccamp.

Vikings' Mike Harris: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harris was placed on the active/non-football injury list with an undisclosed injury, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

The fifth-year lineman has been a career backup and will again look to fill that role in the coming season. It's unclear why he's on the NFI list, but he isn't expected to be gone from practice for an extended period.

Vikings' Kenrick Ellis: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ellis has been placed on the Vikings' active/physically unable to perform list with an undisclosed injury, Ben Goessling of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Ellis' placement on the PUP list comes as a bit of a surprise, but at this point his condition doesn't seem to be too severe. When he's able to return, he'll be competing for a spot at the tail end of the defensive tackle depth chart for Minnesota.

Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison (knee) has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Ben Goessling of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Ellison was expected to be fully recovered from the torn patellar tendon he suffered in last season's finale by the start of camp, but it appears he'll need a little extra time. He's expected to be back at practice relatively soon, where he'll compete to be the team's third tight end option behind Kyle Rudolph and MyCole Pruitt.

Vikings' Taylor Heinicke: Out for three months with torn tendon in ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heinicke will be out for three months after tearing a tendon in his left ankle in mid-July, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

Heinicke sustained the injury after attempting to enter his friend's home after the two had been locked out. The third-string quarterback attempted to budge the door open with his foot, but slipped and had his foot go through the window, resulting in a fairly serious injury. Clearly, this is a freak injury and the Vikings are hoping for a recovery by mid-season, but the damage to Heinicke's ankle only holds fantasy importance in the deepest of leagues.
