Adrian Peterson says he'll play against the Packers

Author:

Adrian Peterson's only plan for this weekend is to play for the Vikings against the Green Bay Packers.

A nagging groin injury threatened to keep him out, but even if coach Leslie Frazier advisors Peterson not to play, the reigning NFL MVP has made up his mind.

"I'd look at them crazy," Peterson said, via the Star Tribune. "I'd be like, 'Well, I know my body and I'm not going to do anything to hurt myself. Just trust me.'"

Peterson wants to play because he still believes the Vikings, despite being 2-8, have a chance to make the playoffs.

"To be honest with you, in my eyes, I don't know how you all think, but I still think we've got a chance," he said. "Call me crazy. But I still feel like we have an opportunity. That's the way I'm going to approach this week and the rest of the season."

Yahoo! Sports reports that Peterson will continue to take it easy during practice this week.
