Adrian Peterson scared some people when he was listed as out due to the ankle injury he sustained last week. The injury apparently healed just fine, however, because Friday's Minnesota Vikings injury report listed Peterson as probable for the Carolina Panthers game after being a full participant in the week's final practice.
Peterson slowly but surely progressed throughout the week. On Wednesday, after tweaking has ankle during the Vikings game versus the Green Bay Packers, he sat out the entire practice. Peterson then participated in individual drills on Thursday and finally was a full participant in Friday's practice, earning him the probable tag for this week's game.
The only player definitely not playing this weekend is guard Anthony Herrera. Percy Harvin is questionable with his rib injury, Antoine Winfield is questionable with his neck injury and back-up running back Lorenzo Booker is as well due to concussion symptoms.
The remaining players on the probable list are Visanthe Shiancoe, Jared Allen, E.J. Henderson, Brian Robison, John Sullivan, Jamarca Sanford, Husain Abdullah and Remi Ayodele.
