As you know, Peterson is recovering from ACL and MCL surgery so it makes perfect sense that the Vikings would want to bring him along slowly. And it seems that the Vikings are taking extreme measures to do just that.
According to Wiederer, Vikings cornerback Jamarca Sanford told him that the Vikings were given strict orders not to touch Adrian Peterson. And if they do, there will be a harsh price to pay.
“The rules are simple. Do not touch 28. If you touch him, you’re cut.”
The Vikings aren’t playing around with the health of their franchise running back.
