Jason Cole of Yahoo!Sports reports that Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will definitely play today against Jacksonville.
Peterson, who did not play a single down during preseason, will see his first minutes of action this Sunday since having offseason surgery on his knee. Expect the Vikings to limit his participation in this week.
The team wont gamble on their star player, as the risk of re-aggravating the injury is too much. It seems like that Toby Gerhart will see a decent amount of action against the Jaguars with Peterson getting the occasional carry.
