Adrian Peterson Placed On PUP List, Says Leslie Frazier

On Friday afternoon, Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier stated that the team's superstar running back Adrian Peterson was going to be placed on the active Physically Unable to Perform list.

According to Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500, Peterson doesn't appear to be happy about the decision and stated that he didn't want to be held back.

Peterson can be removed from the preseason PUP list at any time prior to the start of the regular season. If he is not well enough by then and is placed on the regular season PUP list, then he will be forced to sit out the team's first six games.

However, he is not expected to be out that long.
