Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: Adrian Peterson On The PUP As Practice Resumes Saturday

The Minnesota Vikings get back on the practice field Saturday for their second practice of training camp. One player that will be on the field working with the team is running back Adrian Peterson. The Vikings placed Peterson on the PUP list to start training camp.

Peterson is still working his way back from knee surgery. If it were up to Peterson, he would be on the field with the other players. Head coach Leslie Frazier told the press after practice that Peterson protested the move. Peterson said he understood the coach's position.

"Ultimately I knew how the conversation was going, that it wasn't going to go my way no matter what I thought," Peterson said. "But I understand the decision."

The Vikings can remove him from the PUP list at any time during training camp.

Minnesota has two practices scheduled for Saturday. A walk-thru is from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m., and the players will practice with helmets in the afternoon session from 2:45 - 5:30 p.m. A complete schedule is available on the team's website.
