Adrian Peterson won't play in Hall of Fame Game

The Minnesota Vikings open up the preseason Sunday night in the nationally-televised Hall of Fame Game -- the first of 5 preseason games. This is a chance for the Vikings to show the country what they have now that Adrian Peterson is back..

After Peterson missed nearly 9 months of action, surely head coach Mike Zimmer will play him, right? The answer out of Mankato was no.

Just like the past few preseasons, Peterson will be limited to standing on the sideline and helping out the other running backs.
