Adrian Peterson will not play in Saturday’s preseason game

By akrammer@1500espn.com

MANKATO, Minn. — Adrian Peterson hasn’t carried the ball in a preseason game since 2011 and that’s not going to change on Saturday.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Peterson will not play on Saturday, which has been typical for the star running back. Peterson did not play in Friday’s preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders.

He saw just two snaps in 2013’s preseason, but did not have a carry. Obviously, the risk of injury is not worth the reward of seeing Peterson in game action before the regular season opener on Sept. 7.
