Vikings sign former Packers RB DuJuan Harris

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have added another running back to the mix while trying to sort through Adrian Peterson's future with the team.

The Vikings signed former Packers running back DuJuan Harris on Thursday.

Harris missed all of the 2013 season with a knee injury and appeared in 15 games for the Packers last season. He carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards and could give the Vikings depth at the position if they part with Peterson.

The Vikings and their star running back have met several times after Peterson missed the last 15 games of last season while addressing child abuse charges in Texas. It remains unclear whether Peterson will return to play for the Vikings next season.
