Vikings OC: Adrian Peterson Looks ‘Like He Hasn’t Missed A Day’


Despite missing all but one game in 2014 after being put on the Commissioner’s Exempt List following child injury charges in September, Adrian Peterson looks like he’s been working out everyday in preparation for a monster return.

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner couldn’t help but gush about the return of his All-Pro running back.

“I’ve been around a lot of these guys a lot of years and he’s one of the top guys I’ve been around,” Turner said Thursday, via 1500 ESPN Radio. “He just comes out and looks like he hasn’t missed a day.”

Corner Captain Munnerlyn said you couldn’t tell the running back had been away from the field.

“He’d been out of football almost a whole year,” Munnerlyn said. “A guy like him, though, I haven’t been around him a year, or six months, didn’t know if he’d come back in this type of shape.

“The guy is in unbelievable shape, like he hadn’t missed a step, and he’s out to prove a point.”

I think Peterson showing up will go a long way towards getting some of that guaranteed money he was searching for.
