  • Adrian Peterson Looks Sharp in Scrimmage

    New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson was one of the offensive bright spots in Thursday's scrimmage against the Chargers. Peterson cut inside for two nice runs, one for a touchdown. He drew praise from his former coach Norv Turner, who was there to observe his former team from San Diego. "He's such a competitive runner, and he's got such a big heart," Turner said. "And he still has a lot of ability. He's going to have a big year for them." Peterson may not get to showcase what he has left in the tank until Week 1, as it's still undecided whether he will see the field for exhibition games. His last appearance in a preseason game came back in 2011. He is currently slated to share time with Mark Ingram, which makes him an RB3 for draft purposes.

  • Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram Listed as Co-Starters on Depth Chart

    Among all the overanalysis of the first preseason depth charts issued by NFL teams, the most noteworthy pertaining to the Saints comes at running back. Rather than listing one starter, New Orleans chose to put Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram as co-starters - the only team to do so. Many speculated that Ingram would get the official nod while Peterson was worked into the mix, but maybe there will be more of an even split than anticipated. Peterson hasn't wowed in camp, but he is in shape and doing well with the offense. Ingram has looked sharper than ever, especially in the passing game, although rookie Alvin Kamara will alleviate much of his workload on third downs. Ingram is still likely to gain the most carries and yards at season's end, but it could be closer than expected.

  • Adrian Peterson May Actually Appear in Preseason Games

    New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson usually makes a habit of not participating in exhibition games, but this year may be different. Peterson is trying to catch on with a new team and has been actively lobbying to see action in the preseason. He has been healthy so far in camp and doesn't need the reps to prove he can still run, but fitting in a different scheme is the key. "When it comes to the physical part of it, I don't think that's gonna be an issue. It's more mentally fully understanding the offense," said Peterson. Whether he winds up suiting up or not, it will likely take some time for him to adjust to his new role on a new team, while starter Mark Ingram sticks with the first-team. Peterson should be viewed as RB depth, not a fantasy starter.
