If Adrian Peterson Plays Week 1, He Won’t Get a Lot of Touches

There is no guarantee AP will even play against the Jaguars, but if he does don’t expect much. It would be prudent for the Vikings to slowly work him back into the mix and it appears that is what they are going to try to do.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has already said he’ll wait until game time to decide if running back Adrian Peterson can play in the opener against the Jaguars. And now Frazier says that if Peterson does play, it won’t be the full workload he’d get if he weren’t coming back from a torn ACL.

“We recognize if he’s able to get in this first ball game, it’ll be with limited exposure,” Frazier said. “We’ll talk about it as the week goes on and see how he’s doing and if it’s even a viable option to let him play.”
