Draft Scout *Adrian Peterson News
08/17/16 - RB Adrian Peterson, who came to camp with a hamstring injury, looks as strong and as fit and fast as ever. The 31-year-old reigning NFL rushing champion also appears mentally determined to tie Curtis Martin's record for oldest rushing champion. It remains uncertain whether he will play in any preseason games.
08/04/16 - RB Adrian Peterson on Thursday saw an appeals court rule in favor of the NFL and reinstated the suspension and fine of Minnesota Vikings star. A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that arbitrator Harold Henderson acted within his authority when he upheld the league's discipline against Peterson. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell indefinitely suspended Peterson and fined him six games of pay in 2014 after the running back pleaded no contest to injuring his son while doling out punishment. The penalties were upheld by Henderson.
08/02/16 - RB Adrian Peterson suffered what is believed to be a minor hamstring pull shortly before training camp started. He has missed the first four days of practice while the team makes sure not to rush him back.
07/30/16 - RB Adrian Peterson has missed the squad's first two practices with a hamstring injury, head coach Mike Zimmer said Saturday.
Zimmer described Peterson's injury as a slight pull and said it occurred while the three-time rushing champion was working out the week before training camp began.
"He can do things; he just can't turn it all the way loose," Zimmer told reporters. "We're just being careful."
Peterson insisted his absence will be short. He passed the club's conditioning test on Friday and worked out on the side on Saturday.
Peterson led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,485 yards, marking the seventh time in his career that he has rushed for more than 1,200 yards in a season.
06/16/16 - RB Adrian Peterson says it every year, but, knowing him, he's probably right. The perennial All-Pro says he's in the best shape of his life. He also says he hopes to play until he's 40. The defending NFL rushing champion is 31 and will be trying to tie Curtis Martin's record for the oldest player to win a league rushing title.
