Adrian Peterson made big news Monday when he told Dash Radio's DJ Skee that his "vision" is to play in the Vikings' Christmas Eve game at Lambeau Field.

But it should be stressed that Peterson hasn't ruled out a return this week at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

"I'll be back out there this week practicing and I'll go from there," Peterson said. "I've been a pretty good judge of my body ... I don't know if I'll be ready to roll this week, next week or the week after. These next couple days, these next two weeks for sure, will really help me determine what I'll be able to do.

"God has really blessed me to be able to heal rapidly."

If Peterson is ready to go this week he'll be in for a sweet matchup. Indy's rushing defense ranks 24th in the NFL, allowing 115.4 yards per game.

Still confident in a run to the Super Bowl

Adrian told DJ Skee that he hasn't given up hope on a run to his hometown (Houston) for the Super Bowl.

"In life you never know what route you might have to take to accomplish something great, so just embrace the opportunities that lie ahead of you and make the best of it," he said. "And that's all we can do right now. We're not on this eliminated list. We still have an opportunity – there's been plenty of teams that have made it to the playoffs at 9-7 and went on to win a Super Bowl.

"We have what it takes from the coaches, from all phases. We have what it takes to run the table and accomplish that. That's what my mind is on."
