Adrian Peterson


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – Despite the legal issues hanging over his head, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was reinstated by the team Monday and is expected to play Sunday against New Orleans.

The announcement was made after a reported teleconference Sunday night involving team management, coach Mike Zimmer and owners Mark and Zygi Wilf.

The team released the following written statement announcing the decision.

Today’s decision was made after significant thought, discussion and consideration. As evidenced by our decision to deactivate Adrian from yesterday’s game, this is clearly a very important issue. On Friday, we felt it was in the best interests of the organization to step back, evaluate the situation, and not rush to judgment given the seriousness of this matter. At that time, we made the decision that we felt was best for the Vikings and all parties involved.
