Vikings RB Adrian Peterson injured his ankle in Week 11 and has missed two games since. But on Thursday he practiced for the first time since the injury, leaving open the possibility that he’ll be able to suit up on Sunday in Detroit.
Peterson participated in practice on a limited basis, and now all 10 of the 11 players listed with injuries are practicing. Christian Ponder (hip) missed practice for a second consecutive day on Thursday. Steve Hutchinson (illness) and Brian Robison (concussion), who both missed practice on Wednesday, also returned to the practice field on Thursday.
The Lions still have a handful of players not practicing, including starters S Louis Delmas (knee), LB Justin Durant (hamstring), CB Chris Houston (knee) and RB Kevin Smith (ankle). Also missing from practice today were DT Nick Fairley (foot), DE Lawrence Jackson (thigh) and S Amari Spievey (illness). Players listed as limited participants were CB Brandon McDonald (thigh), G Rob Sims (shoulder) and DE Willie Young (ankle).
