Adrian Peterson Injury: Vikings RB Set To Start Running On Feb. 28

It's been over a month since the last pertinent news related to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, but it looks like there's some more info now - and it's good news. According to Scout.com, Peterson told KFAN 100.3 FM on Friday morning that he's scheduled to start running at the end of the month, Feb. 28.

"I'm definitely making improvement. I'm starting to get my muscle tone and strength back into the legs," Peterson told Paul Allen on KFAN. "I'm happy with the progress I've made so far. I'm extremely happy."

That's really good news, in regards to the fact that there's no setbacks and it looks like Peterson is on schedule, and if anything, could be a little ahead of schedule. That being said, "running" at this point is probably a far cry from what most of us would consider running when it comes to the star running back. The end of February would likely be too soon for Peterson to actually put all his weight on his legs while running.

Peterson running at this point isn't impossible, but it's likely that "running" isn't actually "running." Obviously, the Vikings will not allow Peterson to do a whole lot with it, regardless. Even if he somehow seemed totally better and ready to go, they would be limiting him as per the plan they've laid out.
