Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson left Tuesday's practice after suffering a thigh injury, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Peterson reportedly sustained a bruised thigh when a teammate fell on him during a drill and he was relegated to the sidelines for the remainder of practice. "He got tangled up," Peterson's teammate Jerick McKinnon said. "A defender fell on him, but he said he was alright. Everybody knows Adrian's got a cape on. He'll be back out here tomorrow. I don't think anybody's worried about him." McKinnon's words were reinforced by those of a source close to the team who said Peterson would be fine. The 30-year-old's removal from practice was likely only precautionary, and he is not expected to miss much additional time, if any. Peterson is unlikely to play much during the Vikings' first preseason game this week, but the team will get him some reps as the preseason schedule progresses.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson agreed Tuesday to a deal that will restructure the final three years of his current contract. Peterson had expressed his desire for a new deal as far back as February and was seeking additional guaranteed money with only this year's $13 million salary guaranteed on the previous contract. "I appreciate the Vikings for working together on this restructured contract, which provides additional security for me but also allows opportunities for me to further prove my value to the team and within the NFL," the 30-year-old said. The agreement brings some closure to a tumultuous offseason between Peterson and the front office, as he had indicated that he would like to be traded or released if he was not given a restructured deal. After missing 15 games last season due to an investigation into a domestic incident involving his son, Peterson will head into training camp with renewed trust between himself and the organization.
