Adrian Peterson hasn't taken a preseason carry the past two seasons. New Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is keeping the trend going, at least for Friday's preseason opener.
Zimmer said Peterson won't play when Minnesota begins the preseason at home against the Oakland Raiders.
Zimmer said the rest of the team's starters will see action, but it won't include the star running back.
The last carries for Peterson in the preseason came in 2011 when he played in three of the games and had 21 total carries.
"It's exciting because the season's starting to kick off," Peterson said Tuesday. "It'll be good to see the young guys out there in some live situations." (FOXSports.com)
