EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson is back to normal again.

Last summer, his knee rehabilitation was the primary focus. During the winter, he was recovering from sports hernia surgery. Now, he's added some off-the-field commitments and is running the ball in practice for the Minnesota Vikings like there was never anything wrong with him.

This is also the time for the Vikings to give the reigning NFL MVP some rest, too. Peterson was held out of minicamp drills on Wednesday. He worked out inside the team facility instead.
