Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be a game-time decision for his team's Week 1 game with the Jaguars, reports ESPN.com (via Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper).

Peterson tore his ACL and MCL last Christmas Eve, and though he hasn't played at all this preseason, his recovery has gone well enough he may be ready to start the year. Minnesota recently allowed him to take contact in practice, and he has apparently responded well.

“We’ve got a lot of things we want to get done with him this week, and I doubt that we would know without getting him through an entire week, if we thought he was ready to play a game,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier told ESPN.com.

The Vikings-Jaguars game could be the most stressful for fantasy football owners. Peterson and Jaguars' running back Maurice Jones-Drew, a holdout, are both question marks for the beginning of the season.
