Adrian Peterson Could Be Activated From PUP List As Early As Sunday

The Minnesota Vikings coaching staff is meeting today to discuss the roster and potential changes to the team’s depth chart. One of the topics of discussion will be whether or not to remove starting running back Adrian Peterson from the Physically Unable to Perform list where he has been since the start of the offseason.

“We’re going to discuss it,” Vikings head coach Frazier said. “We’ll discuss where he is and what’s the next step for him this week, whether we continue to work through rehab or how we want to approach it.”

Peterson has been working hard to recover from a torn ACL late in the season and reconstructive knee surgery. Peterson has steadily been progressing as the offseason has gone on and he has had no setbacks.

The Vikings how handled Peterson’s status with caution and do not want to rush him back on the field.

While bringing Peterson off of the PUP list as early as Sunday is an option, it is no sure thing. Frazier and the Vikings coaching staff will do their due diligence and make sure Peterson is 100% before they remove him from the PUP list and get him back on the field.
