Vikings RB Adrian Peterson finally practices, plans to play Sunday
After a week with very little practice and a lot conversation over his groin injury, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said Friday that "nothing has changed" -- he plans to play per usual in Week 12 against the Packers. Peterson went through limited practice Friday after missing the week's earlier sessions and is listed as questionable.
Peterson's owners should cover themselves for this week by adding Toby Gerhart just in case Peterson falls victim to a Calvin Johnson-like surprising Sunday inactive. But I guess there's no harm in taking him at his word, and Peterson is of course a must-start. While Peterson's numbers of late certainly haven't been what we are used to -- he has one 100-yard outing since Week 4 -- he's liable to put up a big game at any moment. Green Bay's run defense is average.
