01/02/17 - RB Adrian Peterson (knee) were held out for Minnesota. Peterson missed the final two games of the season and ended the year with just 72 yards rushing in three games..
12/30/16 - RB Adrian Peterson was ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Chicago Bears. The 31-year-old Peterson has been slowed with knee and groin injuries for the second straight week after he returned from a torn meniscus in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 18. The 2012 NFL MVP has not practiced since the Colts game, and will finish the season with 37 carries for 72 yards and no touchdowns in three games.
12/29/16 - RB Adrian Peterson (groin/knee) didn't practice again Thursday and isn't expected to play in what could be his last game as a Viking. Peterson returned from injured reserve against the Colts on Dec. 18, but suffered a groin injury while playing his first 12 snaps since tearing the meniscus in his right knee in Week 2.
12/28/16 - RB Adrian Peterson (groin/knee) didn't practice Wednesday and isn't expected to play in what could be his last game as a Viking. Peterson returned from injured reserve against the Colts on Dec. 18, but suffered a groin injury while playing his first 12 snaps since tearing the meniscus in his right knee in Week 2.
12/26/16 - RB Adrian Peterson couldn't practice all week and was inactive because of a groin injury. He won't play against the Bears in the season finale and very well could have played his last game as a Viking. He spent 11 weeks on injured reserve after having surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee. He returned against the Colts on Dec. 18, played only 12 snaps and was ineffective as Indianapolis jumped ahead 27-0 at the half. Peterson has a year left on his contract. But it's for $18 million, a sum the team won't pay. Peterson is unlikely to take less money to stay in Minnesota, where he has one playoff victory in his 10 seasons.
12/23/16 - RB Adrian Peterson has been ruled out of Saturday's road game against the Green Bay Packers. Peterson returned for last Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts after missing 11 games with a torn meniscus. He was limited to six carries for 22 yards and fumbled on his game-long 13-yard run in the 34-6 defeat, and apparently aggravated a groin injury against the Colts. Peterson did not practice all week and was listed on Friday's injury report as having knee and groin injuries.
12/22/16 - RB Adrian Peterson did not practice again Thursday because of a groin injury he suffered in last week's return from injured reserve. Peterson missed 11 games because of a torn meniscus. He returned for the 34-6 loss to the Colts, carrying the ball only six times for 22 yards and a fumble during a 12-snap outing.
12/21/16 - RB Adrian Peterson did not practice Wednesday because of "nicks" he said he sustained in the 12 snaps he got against the Colts on Sunday while returning from knee surgery that put him on injured reserve for 11 games. Peterson said he wants to play Saturday at Green Bay, but is taking things "one day at a time" as he rehabs his right knee.
12/18/16 - RB Adrian Peterson, playing for the first time since he suffered a knee injury in Week 2, gained just 22 yards on six carries and was relegated to the bench for much of the second half as the Vikings were in passing mode, trailing by 27 or more. "Definitely not what I envisioned coming into this game," Peterson said, after catching one pass for one yard and fumbling in the red zone. "It's unfortunate that it ended the way it did." Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had little to say after the game, but did intimate that Peterson was fully ready to return from the injury.
12/17/16 - RB Adrian Peterson was officially activated from the Vikings' injured reserve list in time for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Peterson returned to practice this week after he was designated for return from IR on Wednesday. The Vikings had a 21-day window for evaluation before making the decision.
Sunday's game will be three months to the day that Peterson suffered a torn meniscus against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 on Sept. 18. He underwent surgery the following week on Sept. 22 and began rehabbing with the goal of returning this season.
