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.

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.

06/15/16 - RB Adrian Peterson hasn't been shy about his title dreams entering his 10th NFL season. Peterson believes the Vikings have the makings of a Super Bowl winner. In fact, he's so excited that he says even training camp won't be as bad this season. "I'll probably be a little more excited, but I'm never excited to go to training camp," Peterson said.
"It's always until I drive into Mankato and it's like, 'OK, the reality is there. It's time to start.' But I am excited as far as what we have and the vision that we have for this season. So that will make it a lot better going into camp this year."
