Peterson Will “Fight” To Avoid PUP List
Adrian Peterson got into some trouble for allegedly fighting with members of the Houston Police Department, but that isn’t going to deter him from fighting with team officials that may try to put him on the PUP list, sidelining him during training camp.
“I’m going to lobby to get out there. I feel like I can participate a little bit,” Peterson said in Mankato on Thursday. “”It’s going to be their call. My main focus is just getting out there and trying to get myself ready. To be honest with you, I’m going to try to fight against (PUP) so I can get out there and be involved. Ultimately, I know these guys are going to do what’s best for this team.”
Head Coach Leslie Frazier indicated that he would talk to Peterson late on Thursday and discuss how the rehab is going. Frazier reiterated that the team plans to include doctors and trainers in the process of deciding what the immediate plan should be for Peterson.
Peterson again insisted that he did nothing wrong during his altercation in Houston, and expressed confidence that the truth will come out in his favor.
