Adrian Peterson Expected to Play on Sunday After Tearing Meniscus

The Vikings activated former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson from injured reserve on Saturday, according to an official announcement from the club. Defensive tackle Toby Johnson was waived in a corresponding move.

The 10-year veteran could be a breath of fresh air for a rapidly-stalling Vikings offense. The team is currently 24th in points, 31st in total yards, and 32nd in rushing yards. Peterson had 50 yards on 31 carries through two games this season before placing him on injured reserve in late September. While their banged-up offensive line is a source of many woes, Peterson is one of the few players in football who can negate deficiencies up front.
