Peterson absence tough but real for Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) NFL teams make succession plans all the time for star players moving past their prime. The sudden absence of Adrian Peterson from Minnesota's backfield, though, did not reveal a carefully crafted blueprint.

His hiatus, following a charge of child abuse against him in Texas, could hardly have been anticipated.

The Vikings, thus, have begun to try to make due with an unproven group of running backs, lacking the ready-made replacement they might have been on track to acquire next year. Even if Peterson's age and salary already made his future with the team uncertain beyond this season, before the off-the-field issue arose, the Vikings were certainly counting on him to be the featured part of the offense in 2014.
