Peter­son re­turns to prac­tice for Vik­ings

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. | Adrian Peter­son was back on the prac­tice field on Wed­nes­day for the first time in nearly three months, and the Min­nesota Vik­ings hope their star run­ning back can give them the jolt they need to chase down a play­off berth.

Peter­son’s re­hab of a torn menis­cus in his right knee is nearly com­plete, al­low­ing him to re­join his team­mates at prac­tice as he ramps up for a highly an­tic­i­pated re­turn. Wear­ing a black brace on his right knee, Peter­son took hand­offs from Sam Brad­ford, ran routes and went through some agility drills dur­ing the por­tion of prac­tice that was open to me­dia.

Peter­son told a web­site ear­lier in the week that he is still tar­get­ing the Dec. 24 game in Green Bay for his first game since the in­jury against those same Pack­ers in Week 2. Coach Mike Zim­mer did not rule out Peter­son play­ing against the Indianapolis Colts on Sun­day.
