Adrian Peterson's Knee Is Not Swelling, And That's Just Swell

The positive news about star running back Adrian Peterson continues to come out of Minnesota Vikings camp, according to Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

18 carries is a pretty decent workload for a practice, I would think. Heck, last season Peterson had fewer carries than that in seven of the twelve games he participated in (including the game he got injured).

Fowler is also reporting that the team is simulating upper-body contact when Peterson goes through the running holes, but nobody is trying to hit him low at this point.

The Vikings still have not officially stated that Peterson will be the starter for the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 9, but it's beginning to look more and more like it would be an upset if he wasn't out there behind Christian Ponder on the Vikings' first offensive series.
