MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- Adrian Peterson is back on the field for the Minnesota Vikings, working to shore up his fumbling problems and please a head coach who was angered when he skipped a mandatory minicamp in June.
Peterson reported to camp on time and took the field Friday with the rest of his teammates for the first day of camp. The star running back got on coach Brad Childress' bad side in June when he skipped the camp to attend an Adrian Peterson Day celebration in his hometown of Palestine, Texas.
The decision led many to believe that Peterson was unhappy with his contract. But Peterson says that is not the case.
Childress says the two spoke and cleared the air. He called the issue "water under the bridge."
