Peterson's future in Minnesota a question mark (The Associated Press)

Of the eight players already on Minnesota’s injured reserve list, including four of its original starters on offense, running back Adrian Peterson has as realistic a chance as any to be designated for return later this season. If anyone can recover in time from a torn meniscus in his right knee, Peterson is probably the one. ”I look at it as he’s going to do everything he can to get back,” general manager Rick Spielman said.
