10/04/15 - RB Adrian Peterson is re-establishing himself as one of the NFL's elite running backs. His line opened up a big hole for him on a fourth-and-inches play, but Peterson's acceleration through the line of scrimmage was breathtaking. He turned what began as a short burst into a 48-yard touchdown run that got the Vikings back in the game. He finished with 81 yards on 16 carries.

The 30-year old running back rebounded from a sub-par performance in last week's season opener against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. In that game, he carried just 10 times for 31 yards. "I don't know if that was actually the game plan," Peterson said. "But it was working and I guess if it's working, don't stop it."

09/15/15 - RB Adrian Peterson could need some time to regain his all-world form after missing the final 15 games last season, especially as he is now running behind a makeshift line. Peterson gained 31 yards on 10 carries with a long of 9 yards Monday night in a 20-3 loss to San Francisco. "I felt a little hesitant a couple times coming out of the shotgun," Peterson said. "The couple of runs I had, I felt like I could have done better. A couple of them were pretty decent." He also caught three passes for 21 yards.
09/07/15 - RB Adrian Peterson will be unleashed on Sept. 14 and he's going to be running with a vengeance after missing 15 games a year ago. He has made peace with the Vikings, thanks in part to a new deal with more guaranteed money. But he's ticked at the league for holding him out for nearly a year as he dealt with child-abuse charges. He's 30 and hasn't taken a hard hit for nearly 12 months, but let's not put him in a box based on the experiences of those who have come before him. The last time people tried that, Peterson ran for 2,097 yards and won league MVP the year after tearing his left ACL and MCL in a horrific-looking knee injury near the end of the 2011 season.
09/01/15 - RB Adrian Peterson looks to be in excellent shape and has been gliding through practice with crisp cuts and explosive bursts since returning from a thigh bruise nearly a month ago. Endurance shouldn't be much of a problem once the Vikings finally unveil him in the regular season.
