The Minnesota Vikings released a statement this morning, announcing the reinstatement of running back Adrian Peterson. The move allows Peterson to return to practice, and he is expected to play Sunday against the Saints in New Orleans. Here's the statement from the team:
It was the regular season home opener yesterday at the temporary home of the Minnesota Vikings, TCF Bank Stadium, and despite the controversy, plenty of Vikings fans were wearing their #28 jerseys and supporting Adrian Peterson.
The Minnesota Vikings (1-1) fell to the visiting New England Patriots (1-1) 30-7 this afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, just two days after their star running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of abusing his 11 year-old son.
Friday we all learned about an incredibly disturbing incident involving one of Minnesota's most loved athletes, Adrian Peterson. The star running back for the Vikings has been charged with abusing his 4-year-old son.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted by a Texas grand jury on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. The charges stem from a case earlier this year, and have nothing to do with the death of his two year-old son in South Dakota last year.
The Minnesota Vikings (1-0) ended a road winless streak dating back to 2012, with an opening day 34-6 win over the St. Louis Rams (0-1). It's everything I wanted to see. Cordarrelle Patterson was a star. Adrian Peterson was a workhorse. Matt Cassell played smart. The defense was dominating. Bring on the Patriots!
The Minnesota Vikings (0-0) open the 2014 regular season today against the St. Louis Rams (0-0) in the Edwards Jones Dome, after going 4-0 during the preseason. My expectations are high for the Vikes. NFL teams have reached the playoffs 57% of the time after an undefeated preseason. Let's do this!
The Minnesota Vikings claimed two waived players today, adding Cleveland Browns tight end (and former Gopher QB) MarQuies Gray and San Diego Chargers tackle Mike Harris to their 53-man roster. To make room, the Vikes released linebacker Larry Dean and tackle Austin Wentworth.
According to the Vikings Journal, the Minnesota Vikings made their final cuts today to reach the 53-man roster by this afternoon's NFL deadline. Defensive tackle Fred Evans, running back Joe Banyard, and cornerback Chris Crocker were among those released by the team.
The NFL has upheld Minnesota Viking's wide receiver Jerome Simpson's 3-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy stemming from a November DWI arrest. It's Simpson's second suspension; the first resulting from a drug arrest in 2011. I think now's the time to cut him loose.
