Adrian Peterson Injury: Vikings RB Practices In Limited Fashion Again On Thursday

After missing the last three games with a high ankle sprain, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson may finally be back in action on Sunday when the team takes on the tough New Orleans Saints. After saying on Monday that he felt good, Peterson practiced with the team on Wednesday, albeit in limited fashion, but any practice is good news. Now, on Thursday, Peterson once again joined his team for limited practice.

This is good news because there's been no setbacks. According to Sports Illustrated, Peterson said that he feels 85 percent healthy, and that he is determined to play on Sunday against the Saints. It would be the first time Peterson plays in over a month.

If he's not good to go, Toby Gerhart would likely get the start. He's been playing well, but sitting at 2-11 and searching for their first win in some time, the Vikings really need their feature back in Peterson to return. The worst record in franchise history is 3-13, so the Vikings need to pick up a couple of wins so they can avoid doing that. Against a Saints run defense that has been hit-or-miss, this is entirely possible.
