Viking’s Peterson Limited In Practice Thursday

Adrian_Peterson_2013Vikings running back Adrian Peterson returned to a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday’s session with a hamstring issues that’s been bothering him for several weeks.

Peterson said he bruised the hamstring more than a month ago and informed the team last week about the problem because he was feeling increased tightness. Peterson played against the Giants after being listed as probable, his first appearance on the injury report with the hamstring issue, but managed just 28 yards on 13 carries as the Vikings slumped to a 23-7.

Peterson said Thursday that he feels the hamstring injury has impacted him mentally in terms of not cutting loose on the field, something he doesn’t think will be the case against the Packers this weekend.
