Adrian Peterson Injury Update: Vikings Running Back To Ramp Up Rehab This Week, According To Report

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson continues to progress in rehabbing his injured knee, as Tom Pelissero of ESPN Twin Cities is reporting that the running back will ramp up his rehabbing. Pelissero also says that based on his workouts this week, Peterson will make a call about playing on Friday.

Peterson played in 12 games during the 2011 campaign before a crippling ACL and MCL tear ended his season early. He has progressed very quickly in rehabbing his knee and it appears that the thought of him playing in the team's opener is not farfetched.

Of course, fans will want to keep an eye on his work this week and whether or not he suffers any setbacks.
