The Minnesota Vikings announced RB Adrian Peterson was placed on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list Wednesday, Sept. 17, which will keep him away from the team indefinitely.

Week 8: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. As expected, Jerrick McKinnon took over the lead role for the Vikings at Buffalo, and put together 101 yards combined in that effort (19/103/0 rushing and 2/-2/0 receiving). Matt Asiata had 6/24/0 rushing and 1/13/0 in his new change-of-pace role. The tandem isn't making people forget Adrian Peterson, but they are providing an effective ground game for the Vikings. The Buccaneers' rush D is soft this year, ranking 25th in the NFL averaging 128.3 yards allowed per game, with seven rushing scores given up over six games played. They were on bye last week, but handed over 35/169/1 to Baltimore and 29/140/2 to the Saints in their two prior games. Advantage, Minnesota.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson enters not guilty plea (Tue Oct 14, 12:45 PM) - Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson entered a not guilty plea to the charge of injury to a child, according to documents filed to the 9th District Court in Montgomery County, Texas. His trial date is scheduled for Dec. 1, and a pretrial date is scheduled for Nov. 4, per court documents.

Our View: Peterson will remain on the Exempt/Commissioner's permission list while he awaits trial. We would be surprised to see Peterson back in action this year.
