Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as probable for Thursday's game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Peterson missed practice on Tuesday to rest his injured ankle but has not missed any games since hurting it in Week 5.
Fantasy Impact: This is not a surprise, as fantasy owners have been banking on another big game from Peterson against Tampa Bay. There had been some concern about the short turnaround but Coach Leslie Frazier has already said that the team no longer needs to limit the number of carries Peterson gets in a game.
Peterson will be near the top of fantasy running back rankings this week and is a must-start in Week 8.
