The Minnesota Vikings have placed running back Adrian Peterson on the active physically unable to perform list to start training camp.
The move was expected, considering the team's preference to be cautious with their franchise player and his comeback from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. Peterson can come off the PUP list at any time, but he can't take part in drills with the team until then. He still counts against the 90-man roster.
Coach Leslie Frazier said Friday that Peterson put up a fight but the decision is best for the team.
Two other offensive players competing for backup spots were placed on the active non-football injury list. Wide receiver Stephen Burton has a jammed toe, and tight end Mickey Shuler has a sore heel.
