Adrian Peterson limps into Lambeau, possibly for final time as a Viking
Adrian Peterson, the greatest running back in Vikings history, has taken his share of Lambeau Lumps, going 2-6-1 at Green Bay alongside quarterbacks named Brooks Bollinger, Tarvaris Jackson, Christian Ponder, Joe Webb, Teddy Bridgewater and, of course, his favorite, Brett Favre.
Sam Bradford would be the seventh quarterback to play alongside Peterson at Lambeau Field when the Vikings (7-7) face the Packers (8-6) on Christmas Eve. But first things first. Peterson said he needs to get his surgically-repaired right knee feeling well again after suffering “a couple of nicks” Sunday when he returned from injured reserve to play 12 snaps in a 34-6 loss to the Colts.
“I’m just taking it one day at a time,” Peterson said after sitting out Wednesday’s practice. “Resting up. … See how it feels. We’ll address [his playing status] when the time comes.”
