The New Orleans Saints were without running back Adrian Peterson during Thursday’s practice, which seemed like it may have been an ordinary day of veteran’s rest. However, it was soon learned by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that Peterson tweaked his knee in Wednesday’s session.
Fans may be able to breath a sigh of relief, as Peterson recently told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Thursday afternoon twice, “I’m good”. The report says he’s anticipating practicing on Friday in full, but will obviously depend on how he’s feeling. The team’s official injury report even listed him with a rest day.

The Saints enter Week 4 looking to get back to .500 in the early season when they take on the Miami Dolphins in London. Should Peterson be out of the mix, then undrafted rookie free agent Trey Edmunds might see a little offensive work in addition to Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.
Peterson, who has 77 rushing yards on 23 carries this season (3.3 average), will be one to watch when the final injury report drops Friday. However, it seems like he’s fine.
