EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Putting together one of the best seasons ever for an NFL running back, Minnesota Vikings' star Adrian Peterson is now fourth in voting for the Pro Bowl. Peterson, a Pro Bowler each of his first four years in the league before injuries cut short his 2011 season, leads the league in rushing with 1,600 yards and is trying to become just the seventh player in league history to reach 2,000 yards rushing in a season. Peterson moved up to fourth in the latest voting numbers released by the league with 668,942 votes, trailing only Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (823,372), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (746,710) and Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (699,866). Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (652,807) is fifth overall in voting. Voting concludes on Monday, Dec. 17 for the Jan. 27, 2013 game in Hawaii, and Pro Bowl teams are decided based on a vote of fans, players and coaches. Vikings defensive end Jared Allen (294,865) leads all NFC vote-getters at defensive end. Rookie tackle Matt Kalil (158,356) is the leading vote-getter for the NFC at tackle.
