Adrian Peterson Injury: Leslie Frazier Says RB Could Play Friday

The Minnesota Vikings will host the San Diego Chargers at Mall of America field on Friday, and there is a strong possibility All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson could take the field for the first time since Dec. 24, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) in a gruesome left knee injury.

In a press conference transcript posted on the team's website, head coach Leslie Frazier said that they're still bringing Peterson along slowly and that a determination on his status for Friday could be made by Tuesday or Wednesday:

We're going to give him a little bit more each day, see how he responds and continue to determine what is the next step. Just go day-to-day. We have some ideas of how we want to approach it but a lot of it is how he feels with some of the things we're going to give him this week.

We'll probably just see how he does with some of the stuff we'll give him and probably make a determination by Tuesday or Wednesday on if we want to do anymore.
