Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Peterson is still dealing with the effects of a torn ACL he suffered back in January. He played in the season opener against the Jaguars and practiced in full all week. He rushed for over 80 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: Adrian Peterson proved his doubters wrong last week, looking as spry as ever on his way to a two-touchdown performance. Peterson is a top five running back moving forward and has an excellent matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
