Adrian Peterson returns to practice for Vikings, probable for Sunday's game against Bears

Adrian Peterson returned to Minnesota Vikings' practice on Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Peterson, second in the league with 997 yards rushing, has been limited for three weeks with a groin injury and was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. But the reigning MVP will be "ready to roll" when Minnesota hosts Chicago and its 32nd-ranked run defense Sunday.

Peterson was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes and receiver Joe Webb passed their concussion tests and fully practiced Friday and are listed as probable. The Vikings will be without tight end Kyle Rudolph (broken foot) and cornerback Josh Robinson (fractured sternum) on Sunday.
