Saints' Adrian Peterson: Disappointed with workload
Peterson told reporters that he "didn't sign up for nine snaps," ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports.
Peterson did at least carry the ball on six of his nine snaps, picking up 18 yards in his return to Minnesota. His small workload partially was a result of the Saints playing from behind, but it also illustrates the reality that he'll be competing with Mark Ingram (26 snaps) and Alvin Kamara (31) for playing time all season. The early returns suggest Peterson will be hard-pressed to get more than 10 or 15 carries even when the Saints find themselves nursing a lead. A Week 2 matchup with New England is far from ideal for a running back with minimal value in the passing game.
