He’s Back! Peterson Active and Will Start For Vikings

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on September 9, 2012 – 9:29 am

Adrian Peterson, who was listed as questionable on the team’s official injury report, is both active and will start for the team in today’s season-opener against the Jaguars at Mall of America Field.  Peterson of course tore ligaments in his left knee during last season’s week 16 contest against the Redskins but, as it turns out, will only have missed one game due to the injury.

Vikings inactives: QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, WR Jarius Wright, CB A.J. Jefferson, S Andrew Sendejjo, LB Marvin Mitchell, LB Audie Cole, and OL Mark Asper.

Jaguars inactives: WR Brian Robiskie, 21 Derek Cox, LB Daryl Smith, OL Josh Beekman, DE George Selvie, DE Austen Lane, and DT Jeris Pendleton.

    The dome is gonna be crazy loud today. We need to win the coin toss, elect to receive, score on the first drive……after that the crowd noise is a huge problem for the Jags and the Vikes win by 21.

    Big Mistake I believe. I’m excited that Peterson is playing today, but I really don’t believe he’s 100% ready to go. the guy didn’t even take a single hit in the preseason or training camp. I really hope this is the right decision.

    The Jaguars actually have a very good defense– we are doing well. Calm down everyone. They are a hungry team and need this win. Ponder shows moments of brilliance, though,so way too early to write him off. Life is not like a microwave.

    A couple of good drives, but this team looks very much the same as last years team. The Vikings should be throttling the Jags right now, not leading by 2 in the 4th. QB has looked average at best, Defense is lucky that the Jag offense is sub-par. Something needs to change with this team. Don’t know what, but know that something has to change.

    Spoiler…. one its the first week of the season. Not too much to read from the first game. Secondly, after the double down in 2010, its going to take time to get all of the personnel we need to get back on top. It seems like the rookies are playing pretty darn well for a first NFL game. Blocked PAT, nice kicks, Harrison Smith is in position (needs to drive with his legs more, but otherwise okay.)

    I know what you mean SkolVikes. I had your attitude last season and all off-season, but I expected much more against a team like the Jaguars. I just thought the Vikings were much better than the record of last season showed. I made excuses about short off-season, rookie QB, new coach, but I’m sick of excuses.

    I’ve been a Vikings fan since Joe Capp but I quit. This team is horrible from the ownership through the water boys and everyone in between. The Vikings are the most feeble organization in all of professional sports.

    They won, but the game should not have been that close. Same team as last year, slightly better poor QB play, better O-line, same old secondary, same old Vikings. I’m guessing 6-10 after todays game.

    Ugly win! Need to overhaul the coaching staff big time. Rookies stepped up nice today. Still no killer instinct and giving up way too many 3rd down conversions. Standby Cowher or Gruden, one of you will be called up to bring some fire to this historically underachieving franchise.

    Cook played well (sack for 11 yards) and it simply was a “good” throw to the outside by Gabbert… No chance for Cook.

    What a game??? The Vikes should have stomped on the Jags. THE JAGS, NEW COACHING STAFF, BLAINE GABBERT. Give me a break. All it showed me was that the Vikes are only SLIGHTLY better than the Jags. Not something to be happy about. If this re-built team is going to be good, they need to play better than they did today. Young or not, the core of this team just does not have “it”.

    Do you want to tell me that the Jets, Redskins and Browns are way better than the Bills, Saints and the Eagles? … Ponder didn’t play in the last preseason game, too, and at the end he lead the vikings to the game winning field goal. They won and that’s all what matters.

    No, Titus. Whining is not the same as stating the obvious. There were some good signs, I just don’t see the core of this team ever being good enough to bring home the Lombardi.

    It should have not been that close. Opening day, At home, AP is back, against the Jags. The momentum should have been there from the start and just was not. I was expecting something like 28-10, but not winning in overtime by a field goal. The kind of energy the team had at the end, should have been there the whole game. I just don’t think this core has enough heart.

  228. By Parkway on Sep 9, 2012 | Reply

    @Titus: That is the one positive I’m trying to take away from the WAY in which they won, hopefully it will produce some chemistry and they will bond and the team will be much stronger moving forward.

    Titus, It’s different for native Minnesotans. Since I can remember, the vikings have been a big part of life. For many of us who have lived in the state Since birth, where fall colors are purple and gold; we are impatient. We have waited long enough. I’m glad we won, but I’ve seen wins. I want a championship!!!! And speaking for most native born Vikings fans. I am sick of waiting!!
