Adrian Peterson was a full participant in Friday afternoon’s practice and is probable to play in Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants.
The Minnesota Vikings’ star running back sprained his ankle in last Sunday’s game and didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday before returning to practice on Friday.
The Vikings listed all of their injured players as “probable” for Sunday’s game, by definition meaning they are a “virtual certainty” to be available, despite not all of them being full participants on Friday.
Safety Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring) and tight end Rhett Ellison (ankle) were limited, but linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), nose tackle Linval Joseph (foot), defensive end Everson Griffen (shoulder), cornerback Josh Robinson (concussion), wide receiver Charles Johnson (ankle) and running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) were all full participants.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said on Thursday he would consider sitting some players if they were “iffy” and the Vikings had already clinched a playoff spot before their game started, which they would do by the Atlanta Falcons losing or the Seattle Seahawks winning on Sunday afternoon.
