Coach Mike Zimmer said this morning that he expects running back Adrian Peterson to practice this afternoon. The Vikings will be in pads.
Peterson received an increased number of reps during today’s morning walkthrough, which further suggests that Peterson is ready to roll.
Backup running back Jerick McKinnon, who in the words of Zimmer got a little “twisted” during Monday’s practice, is not expected to practice, according to the coach. McKinnon did not take part in the walkthrough.
If Peterson does practice, it will be his first full practice since the start of camp. Zimmer said last week that Peterson is dealing with a minor hamstring pull suffered while working out on his own last month, the story said.
