Vikings HC Leslie Frazier on RB Adrian Peterson: Have talked thru scenarios. So far he's on pace, optimistic to play in home opener. Not sure on training camp.
If he were to play in Week 1, he would only be about 9 months removed from ACL surgery. No RB has returned to form after tearing his ACL in that timeframe, so we're skeptical. Those owners who decide to roll the dice on Peterson will need to be sure to draft Toby Gerhart as a handcuff.
