Coming off a bad loss to the Lions, the Vikings will have one of their key defensive players back for Thursday’s matchup with the Steelers.

Minnesota announced on Tuesday that cornerback Patrick Peterson has been activated off the reserve COVID-19 list.

Peterson, who has said he’s vaccinated, went on the list on Nov. 29 after testing positive for the virus. He missed the Week 12 loss to Detroit.

In his first year with the Vikings, Peterson also missed several weeks with a hamstring injury earlier in the season. He’s appeared in eight games this season, recording 21 total tackles, a pair of tackles for loss, and two pass breakups.

  1. I think this defense is going to get blown up. I think they’ll ask Hunter to take a pay cut and he’ll refuse and they’ll cut him. I don’t think any of the one year wonders will be back – Breeland, Pat, Woods. I think Barr will be gone. I don’t think Sack Daddy is coming back.

    Kendricks and Hitman will be the only ones left standing.

  2. This just isn’t fair. Minnesota is already so deep at every position on both sides of the ball, and now they get back the top db in the league?!!! This team will steamroll their way to the title!!

    Sorry, not sorry, to the rest of the NFL!!!

  3. Would he have been standing 5 yards deep in the end zone watching the Lions play catch on the last play of the game? No? Who cares? Fire Zimmer.

  4. It had to be the NFL that gave him covid. Part of the grand plan to keep our Vikings down. Just like the official make all the calls against us. Every other team always gets the breaks.
