The Seattle Seahawks will activate running back Adrian Peterson from the training team for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
The Seahawks had signed on for the 36-year-old Peterson to their training team earlier in the week as a reinforcement for their swanky backfield.
Peterson was sacked last week by the Tennessee Titans, who bought him after losing star Derrick Henry to a broken foot. I have carried 27 times in 82 yards and a touchdown in three games.
Peterson is in fifth place in NFL history with 14,902 career rushing yards. He spent his first 10 seasons with Minnesota and then had stays with Arizona, New Orleans, Washington and Detroit before his most recent season in Tennessee.
The Seahawks rank 25th in the league with 92.5 rushing yards per game. They have been without their favorite No. 1 running back, Chris Carson, since week 5 due to a neck injury that required a season-ending operation. Alex Collins has started in his absence and has only topped 50 yards during the seven games.
