The Vikings congratulated Peterson and his wife Ashley on Twitter:
USA Today’s Tom Pelissero said Peterson told him during training camp he would play no matter when his son was born, though Peterson was hoping it would happen during the Vikings’ bye week.
Peterson and the Vikings play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. This season, Peterson has 39 carries for 165 yards but no touchdowns in two games.
In Week 2, Peterson recorded over 100 yards on the ground for the first time in almost two years.
