Adrian Peterson Injury: Vikings RB Is "Ready To Get Hit"

The Minnesota Vikings anticipate that running back Adrian Peterson to will in their season opener on September 9, but they are not yet sure when they will take him off the Physically Unable to Perform list this preseason.

As of right now, Peterson is still doing strength and conditioning exercises while his teammates go through full practices in training camp. He will remain with strength coaches when the Vikings play their preseason opener in San Francisco on August 10, but he's eager to get back on the field.

"I'm just going to go with the flow," Peterson said Wednesday. "Hopefully the plan's to get back in there and slowly but surely get back into the rhythm of things. I'm excited. I've been working hard out here to get back out on the field with the guys. I'm just looking forward to being able to do that."

"I'm ready to get hit," Peterson insisted. "It might sound strange. Just to get that feel. It's time to get going. I know that they understand that. They've been getting good feedback. I'm sure they're as excited as I am to get back out there."

Peterson and coach Leslie Frazier were set to meet Wednesday night to discuss options moving forward. He will be re-evaluated on Sunday to determine whether or not Minnesota will activate him.
