Adrian Peterson Injury: Vikings RB Could Be Activated On Sunday

The prognosis for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's return continues to improve and according to reports, Peterson could be activated to take part in training camp as early as Sunday.

The devastating, season-ending injury to Peterson's left knee threatened to keep the dynamic running back out of action to start the 2012 season, but now just two weeks into training camp it appears Peterson may be ready to help the Vikings in their opener against Jacksonville.

Now, as coach Leslie Frazier considers adjusting his depth chart following the Vikings' 17-6 loss to San Francisco on Friday night, he's considering adding Peterson to the mix.

Another possibility under consideration: taking star halfback Adrian Peterson off the active/physically unable to perform list, where he has been since the start of training camp as he recovers from knee reconstruction.

"We're going to discuss it," 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."
