Goessling: Eventual Peterson return would change the dynamics of the Vikings’ offense

The Minnesota Vikings offense has gone through enough turbulence from losing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater early in the season to a knee injury, running back Adrian Peterson also to a knee injury, and offensive coordinator Norv Turner to a lack of confidence of leading the unit.

However, among the three listed above, one could come back this season and help the inconsistent unit.

Peterson seems to be on track to make another miracle comeback and it wouldn’t come at a better time as the playoff stretch nears.

According Ben Goessling of ESPN, there is hope that the longtime rusher can return and help the team in their postseason push.

“He’s a workaholic,” veteran cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said.
“I definitely wouldn’t put anything past this guy. He’s a fast healer. His makeup is definitely a fighter. We’ll see. I think [he’ll be back], but at the same time, you never know. That’s a tough injury to come back from. He’s got to think about his career, but he’s a guy that wants to come out there and help the team win. One thing is on his mind: He wants to win that Super Bowl. So he feels like if he can come back and definitely contribute to us winning, he definitely will do it.”
