Recovering Peterson ready to receive

FILE - In this Dec. 29, 2013, file photo, injured Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, right, stands on the sidelines during the first half of an NFL football game against the Detroit Lions in Minneapolis. The star running back sure isn't ready to declare himself past his prime, but he did admit he can see the purpose of carrying the ball a little less for the Vikings this season.
