Vikings will not give Adrian Peterson any carries in the preseason
Adrian Peterson has ended his holdout with the Vikings, but he still won’t get any carries in the pre-season. According to Mike Zimmer, Peterson will not get any carries, but he has looked good in the pre-season.
“I probably don’t see that, no,” Mike Zimmer told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Wednesday when asked if Peterson could take preseason snaps. “We’re talking in June, so you can’t hold me to it, but he’s carried the ball a lot (in his eight-year career) and he’s going to continue to carry the ball a lot. He’ll get plenty of looks and reps in practice.”
“He’s looked good,” Zimmer said. “He’s done a good job of really everything, carrying the football, a good job of protection, a good job of catching the football. He seems to be enjoying himself. … It’s nice to see when we see him run the ball, get the ball in his hands and accelerate and the cuts he’s made, he’s looked exceptional.”
