Vikings running backs, even Peterson, must work on blocking

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) After an absence from NFL activity that spanned seven months, Adrian Peterson has returned as Minnesota's featured runner.

But before he resumes his familiar role of carrying the ball, there's one more thing he must do: pass protection.

"Do I like it? No. But I've been out of football for a year. I feel like it's something that is going to be important for me to get back out there," Peterson said. "We have a great group of linebackers, so going against those guys in pass pro one-on-ones is going to be good for the group and for me to get back in the groove."
