Analysis: Peterson had to leave the game against Green Bay last Sunday with the injury, but was able to return late in the game. He did not practice on Wednesday.
|Jan. 3, 20166:57 PM PT7:57 PM MT8:57 PM CT9:57 PM ET2:57 GMT10:57 AM 北京时间7:57 PM MST9:57 PM EST8:57 PM CT6:57 UAE (+1)21:57 ET0:57 - Peterson left Sunday's game but later returned to finish with 67 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in the Vikings' 20-13 win at Green Bay. It doesn't sound like he has any intention of missing next Sunday's home wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Analysis: "It's a little tight, but I'll be OK," Peterson said. "Now I've just got to get up early tomorrow morning, I'm not looking forward to it, and I've got to do what I've got to do to get ready for Sunday."
|Dec. 27, 20158:21 PM PT9:21 PM MT10:21 PM CT11:21 PM ET4:21 GMT12:21 AM 北京时间9:21 PM MST11:21 PM EST10:21 PM CT8:21 UAE23:21 ET2:21 - Peterson ran for 104 yards and a touchdown over three quarters in a beatdown of the hapless Giants on Sunday.
Analysis: The superstar could have had a monster effort if not for the incompetence of the Giants. With Peterson relaxing on the sideline, Jerick McKinnon rushed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a 68-yard romp through a disinterested defense with the temperature down to 11 degrees.
|Dec. 23, 20152:17 PM PT3:17 PM MT4:17 PM CT5:17 PM ET22:17 GMT6:17 AM 北京时间3:17 PM MST5:17 PM EST4:17 PM CT2:17 UAE (+1)17:17 ET20:17 - Peterson will play in Sunday's game against the Giants.
Analysis: The ankle injury that limited Peterson last Sunday and during this week's practices wasn't believed to be serious. Peterson could run wild against the worst defense in Giants' history.
|Dec. 21, 201512:02 PM PT1:02 PM MT2:02 PM CT3:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 AM 北京时间1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST2:02 PM CT0:02 UAE (+1)15:02 ET18:02 - Peterson is expected to be fine for this weekend's game against the Giants.
Analysis: The 2012 NFL MVP sat out most of the second half of Sunday's 38-17 win over Chicago with a sprained left ankle, but the move was mostly precautionary with the Vikings owning a big lead. Peterson should be safe to use in a week most leagues hold their championship games.
|Dec. 20, 20152:23 PM PT3:23 PM MT4:23 PM CT5:23 PM ET22:23 GMT6:23 AM 北京时间3:23 PM MST5:23 PM EST4:23 PM CT2:23 UAE (+1)17:23 ET20:23 - Peterson had a quiet 63 yards on 18 carries in Sunday's win over Chicago.
Analysis: The star running back briefly left the game with an ankle injury and wasn't needed much with the Vikings owning a comfortable lead most of the day.
|Dec. 12, 20158:15 AM PT9:15 AM MT10:15 AM CT11:15 AM ET16:15 GMT12:15 AM 北京时间9:15 AM MST11:15 AM EST10:15 AM CT20:15 UAE11:15 ET14:15 - After complaining about a lack of touches in the previous game, Peterson ran 23 times for 69 yards and a TD in Thursday's loss to Arizona.
Analysis: He has six TDs in the last six games.

Analysis: The NFL's leading rusher has been inconsistent in his last three games and might not have an easier time Thursday in Arizona. The Cardinals have one of the league's best rushing defenses, allowing 89.0 yards per game.
|Nov. 29, 20152:15 PM PT3:15 PM MT4:15 PM CT5:15 PM ET22:15 GMT6:15 AM 北京时间3:15 PM MST5:15 PM EST4:15 PM CT2:15 UAE (+1)17:15 ET20:15 - Peterson ran 29 times for 158 yards and two TDs Sunday at Atlanta. He also caught two balls for 29 yards.
Analysis: Peterson was relatively mediocre at the beginning of the season but is showing why he deserved consideration for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts. He's averaging 132.8 rushing yards over his last four games with five TDs in that span.
|Nov. 23, 201510:16 PM PT11:16 PM MT12:16 AM CT1:16 AM ET6:16 GMT2:16 PM 北京时间11:16 PM MST1:16 AM EST12:16 AM CT10:16 UAE1:16 ET4:16 - Peterson ran 13 times for just 45 yards on Sunday, his least since the season opener.
Analysis: He did score on a 6-yard touchdown run. He has touchdowns in three straight games, but his streak of three consecutive 100-yard rushing performances was snapped.
|Nov. 16, 201510:06 PM PT11:06 PM MT12:06 AM CT1:06 AM ET6:06 GMT2:06 PM 北京时间11:06 PM MST1:06 AM EST12:06 AM CT10:06 UAE1:06 ET4:06 - Peterson had a season-high 203 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries in the Vikings' 30-14 win at Oakland on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson's production has increased over the last three games. He's totaled 431 yards while averaging 5.7 per carry. However, he's only reached the end zone twice over that stretch.
|Nov. 8, 20156:23 PM PT7:23 PM MT8:23 PM CT9:23 PM ET2:23 GMT10:23 AM 北京时间7:23 PM MST9:23 PM EST8:23 PM CT6:23 UAE (+1)21:23 ET0:23 - Peterson matched a season-high with 29 rushes for 125 yards and a TD Sunday against the Rams.
Analysis: AP is averaging 94.8 rushing yards per game with four TDs.
|Nov. 1, 20152:49 PM PT3:49 PM MT4:49 PM CT5:49 PM ET22:49 GMT6:49 AM 北京时间3:49 PM MST5:49 PM EST4:49 PM CT2:49 UAE (+1)17:49 ET20:49 - Peterson finished with 103 yards on just 20 carries in a 23-20 win over the Bears on Sunday.

But the Vikings will be missing starting defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.
Analysis: Peterson didn't practice the first two days of the week because of injuries to his hip, finger and ankle. He acknowledged on Thursday that several hard hits have taken their toll this season, but he was able to practice on Friday and is listed as probable for the game.
|Oct. 25, 201512:23 PM PT1:23 PM MT2:23 PM CT3:23 PM ET19:23 GMT3:23 AM 北京时间12:23 PM MST2:23 PM EST1:23 PM CT23:23 UAE15:23 ET17:23 - After a slow start, Peterson came on strong late in Sunday's win over Detroit. He finished with 98 yards on 19 carries.
Analysis: Peterson, who was battling an illness, wasn't himself early in this contest. His legs also seemed to be bothering him early on.
|Oct. 24, 20153:02 PM PT4:02 PM MT5:02 PM CT6:02 PM ET22:02 GMT6:02 AM 北京时间3:02 PM MST5:02 PM EST5:02 PM CT2:02 UAE (+1)18:02 ET20:02 - A day after downgrading him to questionable due to an illness, the Vikings have made Peterson active for their game Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson jammed the ring finger on his left hand last week against Kansas City. He was originally listed as probable to play the Lions because of that injury.
|Oct. 19, 20151:56 PM PT2:56 PM MT3:56 PM CT4:56 PM ET20:56 GMT4:56 AM 北京时间1:56 PM MST3:56 PM EST3:56 PM CT0:56 UAE (+1)16:56 ET18:56 - The NFL has stated its case for Peterson's six-game suspension last season to a federal appeals court, the league's latest attempt at an off-the-field victory following a series of legal losses related to player discipline.
Analysis: NFL attorney Dan Nash made the pitch Monday to a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. This was the culmination of the league's contest against U.S. District Judge David Doty, who ordered in February that arbitrator on Peterson's appeal last year overreached his authority. Peterson returned to the Minnesota Vikings this season after playing in only one game in 2014, the result of the child abuse charge he faced for disciplining his son.
|Oct. 18, 201512:53 PM PT1:53 PM MT2:53 PM CT3:53 PM ET19:53 GMT3:53 AM 北京时间12:53 PM MST2:53 PM EST2:53 PM CT23:53 UAE15:53 ET18:53 - Peterson was limited to 60 yards on 26 carries in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

Analysis: Peterson added four catches for 13 yards. He was up against the top-ranked defense this week and gets next week off with the bye.
|Sep. 28, 20153:48 PM PT4:48 PM MT5:48 PM CT6:48 PM ET22:48 GMT6:48 AM 北京时间3:48 PM MST5:48 PM EST5:48 PM CT2:48 UAE (+1)18:48 ET21:48 - Peterson rushed for 126 yards and scored twice in Minnesota's win over San Diego.
Analysis: Peterson had a great follow-up to his 134-yard effort in Week 2 against Detroit and seems to have shaken off any rust from missing most of last season.
|Sep. 21, 20151:43 PM PT2:43 PM MT3:43 PM CT4:43 PM ET20:43 GMT4:43 AM 北京时间1:43 PM MST3:43 PM EST3:43 PM CT0:43 UAE (+1)16:43 ET19:43 - Peterson looked like his old self Sunday against Detroit, reeling off 134 yards on 29 carries, though he couldn't find the end zone.
Analysis: Peterson, who also caught two passes for 58 yards, showed that Week 1 was a fluke. He's an elite RB1 as long as Mike Zimmer and company continue to give him the rock.
|Sep. 15, 20159:37 PM PT10:37 PM MT11:37 PM CT12:37 AM ET4:37 GMT12:37 PM 北京时间9:37 PM MST11:37 PM EST11:37 PM CT8:37 UAE0:37 ET3:37 - Peterson ran 10 times for 31 yards playing his first game in more than a year following paid leave and then a suspension last year in the fallout from a child-abuse case against him in Texas.
Analysis: He had just four carries in the first half then doubled that total on the initial series after halftime.
|Sep. 14, 20155:16 PM PT6:16 PM MT7:16 PM CT8:16 PM ET0:16 GMT8:16 AM 北京时间5:16 PM MST7:16 PM EST7:16 PM CT4:16 UAE (+1)20:16 ET23:16 - Active Monday for their respective comebacks are Peterson and 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman.
Analysis: Peterson returns following paid leave and then a suspension last year in the fallout from a child-abuse case against him in Texas.
|July 25, 20153:47 PM PT4:47 PM MT5:47 PM CT6:47 PM ET22:47 GMT6:47 AM 北京时间3:47 PM MST5:47 PM EST5:47 PM CT2:47 UAE (+1)18:47 ET21:47 - Peterson has reported to Minnesota State University for Vikings training camp.
Analysis: Peterson was bothered enough by the public backlash against him last fall and what he felt was a lack of support from the non-football side of the organization that he first balked at resuming his stellar career in Minnesota. Ultimately, of course, the situation came down to cash. The Vikings pledged to rework Peterson's contract to give him the guaranteed money, meaning security for injury that his agent, Ben Dogra, was pushing for.
|July 21, 201510:08 AM PT11:08 AM MT12:08 PM CT1:08 PM ET17:08 GMT1:08 AM 北京时间10:08 AM MST12:08 PM EST12:08 PM CT21:08 UAE13:08 ET16:08 - Peterson and the Vikings have agreed to restructure the final three years of the running back's contract. The Vikings made the announced Tuesday, four days before players will report to training camp.
Analysis: Terms of the revamped deal weren't disclosed. In a statement distributed by the Vikings, Peterson said he appreciates their willingness to address his contract to provide him "additional security." Peterson's existing deal called for a $12.75 million salary this season, but neither of the two years beyond that was guaranteed.
|May 28, 20152:35 PM PT3:35 PM MT4:35 PM CT5:35 PM ET21:35 GMT5:35 AM 北京时间2:35 PM MST4:35 PM EST4:35 PM CT1:35 UAE (+1)17:35 ET20:35 - Peterson took to Twitter on Thursday to express his frustration over criticism he is receiving while staying away from the voluntary portion of the Minnesota Vikings offseason. Peterson has come under fire after saying he wanted a long-term commitment from the team after missing most of last season while addressing a child abuse charge. He has three years and $46 million left on his deal, but none of that is guaranteed.
Analysis: Peterson says he knows "hundreds of players" that wished the team would have honored their contracts as he is being asked to do. Coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday that Peterson has two choices: he can either play for the Vikings next season or not play at all.
|May 27, 201510:03 AM PT11:03 AM MT12:03 PM CT1:03 PM ET17:03 GMT1:03 AM 北京时间10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:03 PM CT21:03 UAE13:03 ET16:03 - Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says Adrian Peterson has two choices: He can either play for the Vikings or he cannot play at all.
Analysis: The star running back has missed the first two days of optional team practices and is not expected to attend any of the optional workouts this summer. He has been upset with the team for a perceived lack of support while he faced a child abuse charge last season and his representatives have said he should play elsewhere next season.
|May 24, 20157:10 PM PT8:10 PM MT9:10 PM CT10:10 PM ET2:10 GMT10:10 AM 北京时间7:10 PM MST9:10 PM EST9:10 PM CT6:10 UAE (+1)22:10 ET1:10 - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Peterson has informed Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer that he will not be attending the team's optional practices that start on Tuesday. Peterson is not required to attend any team functions until a mandatory minicamp next month.
Analysis: Peterson has been unhappy with the Vikings for a perceived lack of support from within the organization while he addressed child abuse charges last season. The person spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the issue. The Vikings have said they have no plans to trade Peterson, who could lose out on a $250,000 workout bonus by skipping the practices this week.
|Apr. 20, 20154:02 PM PT5:02 PM MT6:02 PM CT7:02 PM ET23:02 GMT7:02 AM 北京时间4:02 PM MST6:02 PM EST6:02 PM CT3:02 UAE (+1)19:02 ET22:02 - A person with knowledge Peterson's offseason workouts tells The Associated Press that star running back has decided not to attend Minnesota's spring strength and conditioning program. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation on Monday, the first day Vikings players gathered at team headquarters for supervised workouts.
Analysis: Peterson's absence was expected, of course, given his expressed disinterest in returning to the organization. Even in a normal year, Peterson's presence during the offseason has been rare. He spent some time in Minnesota last year to get acclimated to coach Mike Zimmer's staff, but Peterson's preference has been to prepare with his personal trainer at home in the Houston area.
|Apr. 16, 201511:17 AM PT12:17 PM MT1:17 PM CT2:17 PM ET18:17 GMT2:17 AM 北京时间11:17 AM MST1:17 PM EST1:17 PM CT22:17 UAE14:17 ET17:17 - The NFL has reinstated Peterson, clearing the way for him to return after missing most of last season while facing child abuse charges in Texas.
Analysis: The league announced its decision on Thursday. Commissioner Roger Goodell sent Peterson a letter advising him of his reinstatement. Goodell wrote that Peterson will have to fulfill all the obligations of his plea deal with authorities after he reached a plea deal to reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor.
|Mar. 20, 20151:09 PM PT2:09 PM MT3:09 PM CT4:09 PM ET20:09 GMT4:09 AM 北京时间1:09 PM MST3:09 PM EST2:09 PM CT0:09 UAE (+1)16:09 ET19:09 - Peterson will meet with the NFL on Tuesday to discuss his playing status.
Analysis: Peterson was suspended under the NFL's personal conduct policy through at least April 15 due to a child abuse case involving his young son, a decision he appealed. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said he planned to meet with Peterson before that date to determine his status.
|Mar. 10, 201511:29 AM PT12:29 PM MT1:29 PM CT2:29 PM ET18:29 GMT2:29 AM 北京时间11:29 AM MST1:29 PM EST12:29 PM CT22:29 UAE14:29 ET17:29 - Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings are still working on their relationship.
Analysis: Two people with knowledge of the visit, speaking Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, confirmed that Peterson met with Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman in the New York area. This was a sequel of sorts to a trip that Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer took last week to Peterson's home outside of Houston.
|Mar. 4, 20151:59 PM PT2:59 PM MT3:59 PM CT4:59 PM ET21:59 GMT5:59 AM 北京时间2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST3:59 PM CT1:59 UAE (+1)16:59 ET20:59 - The Minnesota Vikings have made their in-person pitch to Adrian Peterson.
Analysis: General manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer spent about four hours Wednesday afternoon at Peterson's home north of Houston. Photographers captured Spielman and Zimmer leaving together, dressed in sport coats and blue jeans. This was the first time meeting they've had with Peterson since the star running back was placed on the exempt list in mid-September following his indictment in a child abuse case involving his 4-year-old son.
|Feb. 18, 20159:58 AM PT10:58 AM MT11:58 AM CT12:58 PM ET17:58 GMT1:58 AM 北京时间10:58 AM MST12:58 PM EST11:58 AM CT21:58 UAE12:58 ET15:58 - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says he expects Peterson to stay with the team this season.
Analysis: Several high-ranking Vikings officials have expressed their desire to bring Peterson back in recent weeks, and Spielman's comments to reporters at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis were the strongest yet. Spielman, however, declined to comment about whether or not the Vikings would ask Peterson to restructure his contract. His deal calls for a salary cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015.
|Feb. 6, 20153:20 PM PT4:20 PM MT5:20 PM CT6:20 PM ET23:20 GMT7:20 AM 北京时间4:20 PM MST6:20 PM EST5:20 PM CT3:20 UAE (+1)18:20 ET21:20 - The latest dispute between the NFL Players Association and the NFL over the league's personal conduct policy was aired Friday in federal court, as Adrian Peterson listened to arguments about his suspension that the union is trying to have overturned.
Analysis: It was more criticism of the disciplinary process that Peterson and the union have derided as arbitrary and unfair since punishment was levied by the NFL after the running back was charged in a child abuse case involving his son. He resolved the case with a plea bargain last year. Peterson and the union would prefer a ruling before March 10, when the league's free agency and trading period starts.
|Feb. 5, 201512:41 PM PT1:41 PM MT2:41 PM CT3:41 PM ET20:41 GMT4:41 AM 北京时间1:41 PM MST3:41 PM EST2:41 PM CT0:41 UAE (+1)15:41 ET18:41 - Peterson remains in NFL limbo and his union's latest attempt to restore his playing status will take place in federal court.
Analysis: Attorneys for the NFL Players Association are scheduled to argue Friday for the Minnesota Vikings running back's reinstatement from a suspension levied by the league under its personal conduct policy.
