Adrian Peterson active for Vikings vs. Panthers, 2 days after son of star runner's death

Adrian Peterson is suited up for Minnesota's game against Carolina.

One of the star running back's sons, a 2-year-old in South Dakota, died Friday after an alleged attack in a child abuse case. Peterson said he would play Sunday, and as expected he is on the active list. Also active for the Vikings is kicker Blair Walsh, who was listed as questionable because of hamstring tightness.

Inactives for the Vikings are new quarterback Josh Freeman, safety Mistral Raymond, linebackers Gerald Hodges and Audie Cole, defensive tackle Chase Baker, defensive end Justin Trattou and guard Jeff Baca.

Inactives for the Panthers are wide receiver Marvin McNutt, cornerbacks D.J. Moore and Josh Norman, running back Kenjon Barner, safety Robert Lester, guard Amini Silatolu and defensive tackle Dwan Edwards.
