Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson admits he was a little rusty

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was away from the game for a long time, but his superhuman ability leads one to believe he could never be rusty. After all, this is the same guy who tore his ACL late in the 2011 season, only to come back the next year and finish fewer than 10 yards shy of the all-time single-season rushing record (2,105).Well, apparently, that's not...

First Day of Full Pads for the Minnesota Vikings; AP Catches a Pass Out of the Backfield

This is a good sign of things to come. It seems like forever--or at least a few months--since we have seen some of our favorite gridiron gladiators strap on the pads and take the field. Yes, it is only practice and guys are not going to try and kill each other, but it's better than the football action we've been seeing (nothing).So--after such a long lay off how was it for Adrian...
