The Minnesota Vikings are planning to discuss activating injured running back Adrian Peterson on Sunday.
Peterson, recovering from torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, has said he plans to be ready for the season opener in four weeks. He is on the active/physically unable to perform list.
But Vikings coach Leslie Frazier told ESPN Twin Cities that he plans to talk with his coaching staff on Saturday about activating Peterson on Sunday.
"We're going to discuss it," Frazier said. "We'll discuss where he is and what's the next step for him this week, whether we continue to work through rehab or how we want to approach it."
Peterson has not practiced with the team during training camp. Toby Gerhart has been the Vikings' lead option at running back. He had five carries for 31 yards in Friday's exhibition against the San Francisco 49ers.
