Tom Pelissero of ESPN Twin Cities reports that RB Adrian Peterson will likely start training camp on the PUP list.
Head coach Leslie Frazier hints at this by stating, “… in my mind right now, it’d be better to be doing things on the side (in camp) until we know and feel comfortable that he can get out there and interact with the players.”
The jury is still out on whether or not Peterson will be able to play week one of the 2012 season. Teammates have been impressed with his progress as they have also had trouble in even keeping up with Peterson in specific team drills. It is definitely a long shot for Peterson to start week one let alone be effective, but with the numerous reports of his ahead of schedule recovery, one cannot rule it out either.
