Adrian Peterson Officially Active, Will Start Against the Colts

December 18th, 2016

For the first time since Week 2, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is active. Returning from a torn meniscus he sufferd in the team's second game, Peterson is also expected to start against the Indianapolis Colts. It's not yet known whether he will be on a pitch count, but this is absolutely big news for the Vikings. They entered Week 15 ranked 32nd in the NFL in rushing.
