Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin Present But Not Practicing At Vikings OTAs

With the Minnesota Vikings in the midst of Organized Team Activities, the team's two biggest stars spent the day with the team but absent from the practice field. Superstar running back Adrian Peterson and wide receiver Percy Harvin spent the day sprinting up a practice hill and working with team trainer Eric Sugarman rather than with Christian Ponder and the rest of the offense.

Peterson is recovering from reconstrcutive knee surgery and is hopeful he will be able to play in Week 1. Harvin is also recovering from surgery, which was performed in late-April to clean out bone spurs in his shoulder and expects to be back sooner rather than later. Via TwinCities.com:

"I feel great," Harvin said Wednesday, May 30. "Right now I have no restrictions as far as on the field. I definitely wanted to get (the surgery) out of the way so I could get up here with the team and get this show on the road."

Harvin also went on to say that Peterson tried to beat him while the two participated in the hill sprints.
