As expected, Adrian Peterson is making his return to the lineup Sunday at Cincinnati.

After sitting out last week’s win vs. Philadelphia, Peterson is active for today’s game against the AFC North-leading Bengals, the club said this morning.

The Vikings will also have the services of running back Toby Gerhart, who is active after being out last week.

Peterson has rushed for 1,221 yards and 10 TDs this season. He has scored double-digit touchdowns in every one of his seven NFL campaigns.
