Adrian Peterson Injury: Vikings RB Activated From PUP List, Returns To Practice

After a tumultuous offseason, to say the least, Minnesota Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson was spotted participating in a team walkthrough on Sunday morning at the team's practice facility according to 1500ESPN.com.

Peterson, who needed to be removed from the team's physically unable to perform (PUP) list before he could actively participate in practice, has recently ramped up his rehab process in order to get back on the field to open the season on time. And after Minnesota's 17-6 preseason loss to San Francisco on Friday night, where the team only mustered 202 yards of total offense and not much on the ground, it's clear that the Vikings need their star running back as soon as possible.

Though NFL rules stipulate that Peterson must wait three days of practice before donning pads, it's obvious that this is a wonderful sign for an organization that has dealt with a fair share of injuries as of late. Although it's unclear what type of contribution he'll be able to make in the coming days, the team remains hopeful that he can see a handful of carries at some point this preseason.
