 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Running back Adrian Peterson was listed as probable for the Vikings' game against the Lions on Sunday after missing two games because of a torn lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.
``He had some soreness, which you would expect ... just from the inactivity,'' coach Brad Childress said after practice Friday.
``It's not going to slow me down,'' Peterson said of the soreness. ``I'm going to be out there going full speed. It's just a matter of feeling what it's like when I get hit.''
Despite the two-game absence, Peterson leads the league in rushing with 1,081 yards and is also first at his position for Pro Bowl votes by fans.
Wide receiver Troy Williamson was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game due to lingering effects from a concussion. He missed Thursday's practice with persistent headaches, and didn't participate Friday.
Backup safety Tank Williams was ruled out with a knee injury, and backup linebacker Dontarrious Thomas (groin) and cornerback Antoine Winfield (hamstring) were questionable.
Defensive end Kenechi Udeze had another excused absence Friday related to the recent birth of his daughter, but Childress expected him to play against Detroit.
