According to Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press, the Minnesota Vikings have placed running back Adrian Peterson on the PUP list to start training camp. He reportedly fought the decision, but this is the best for him as his knee recovers from ACL surgery.
The Vikings will have the option to take Peterson off the PUP list and place him on their active roster at any time during training camp. Once the regular season comes, if he’s still on the list, he’ll have to wait until after week six.
