#Vikings officially activate Adrian Peterson, putting him on track to return tomorrow. DT Toby Johnson waived.
Hope Toby makes it back to the practice squad.

The Vikings placed defensive tackle Tom Johnson on injured reserve, after Johnson injured his hamstring.
Vikings re-sign Toby Johnson.

Another injury loss...poor Toby probably doesn't know if he is coming or going.

What reason would he stay this year go, other then to say, GOODBYE! its maddness. He could really hurt value. If he would eve come back at an awesome deal for us, I dont wont want him out there. At least those are my feelings, very sad.

Boy Fusco has been a mess with that concussion. I hope he can recover. Brain injuries are a scary thing.
