(WDAY Sports) -- The team officially activated All-pro runningback Adrian Peterson from the physically unable to perform list today.

Peterson was able to go through drills with the team, as they practiced indoors on the campus of MSU Mankato.

Remember, he had surgery on his torn ACL, just 8 months ago. There's plenty of experts around the league, that feel rushing Peterson back may be a big mistake. But, AP says he's ready.

Peterson says, " I've done all I can do as far as training, working out, and doing different drills. It was time to get back in the mix and start doing football activities. That's the next step. I'm feeling good. I feel like I'll be able to go out and participate in everything. But, I'm going to let these guys do their job and I'm just going to go with the flow."

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Peterson won't be able to participate in full contact drills until Tuesday.
