The Vikings get some good news with running back Adrian Peterson not making an appearance on the inactive list while expecting to start against the visiting Saints. Rookie quarterback Christian Ponder was pulled out of last week's loss after trying to play through a hip injury. Backup Joe Webb used his feet to spark a rally, but Ponder will give it a go again today with his injured hip and is also expected to start.
The Minnesota Vikings continue fighting for their third win of the season after coming up just short the past couple of weeks. The Vikings have dropped five games in a row while dealing with the absence of AP in the backfield for the past three games.
Here is the official inactive list from the Vikings.
Inactives: CB Chris Cook, S Andrew Sendejo, LB Xavier Adibi, OL Brandon Fusco, TE Allen Reisner, OL DeMarcus Love, and DE D'Aundre Reed.
