Adrian Peterson Likely To Be Game-Time Decision

Adrian Peterson's status was supposed to be decided by Saturday morning, but it's looking more and more likely like he'll be a game-time decision. Head coach Leslie Frazier said it just doesn't make sense to make a decision sooner than he has to regarding the Minnesota Vikings' All-Pro running back.

Peterson has said he's ready to play, but the Vikings have decided to wait ... and wait, according to Frazier.

"There's no reason to make a decision before Sunday," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said after today's practice. "We're going to talk with him again tomorrow to see how he feels."

Until Thursday, Frazier had been saying it would be a game-time decision. But Thursday came and he said the team would know Friday night or Saturday whether Peterson will play.

It'll be interesting to see the final decision, but it sounds like he'll play regardless -- the only thing still up in the air is likely how much he plays.
