The burning question: Will Adrian Peterson play? Adam Schefter of NFL Network says he might (via PFT). John Clayton of ESPN (via Rotoworld) calls Peterson “very questionable.” Access Vikings says Peterson has not yet come out for warm-ups. What do we know for sure? Sidney Rice is out.
Update: Adrian Peterson is not among the inactives. This means he will dress for the game. This does not mean he will start or even play. But he’s available if needed.
Vikings: John David Booty, Sidney Rice, Madieu Williams, Marcus McCauley, Thomas Tapeh, Drew Radovich, Jeff Dugan, Letroy Guiron
Panthers: Matt Moore, Ryne Robinson, C.J. Wilson, James Anderson, Mackenzy Bernadeau, Hilee Taylor, Travelle Wharton, Dwayne Jarrett
Thomas Tapeh – another great signing for Childress. Naufahu Tahi has basically taken his job.
Three out of the five FOX guys just took the Panthers. They need to consider reshuffling their deal there. Howie Long and Michael Strahan are basically the same smiling doof and therefore cancel each other out. No matter how bad that show gets, it will never be as bad as the CBS pregame debacle.
