Peterson update

Attending the Super Bowl as a spectator, Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson said he is anxious to come back as a player and believes his team is capable of doing so in the very near future.

Peterson appeared with Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald at a press conference for Visa Financial Football, a program that teaches high school students to manage their financial futures through a multiple-choice, quiz-type game.

In a brief demonstration game, Peterson's Vikings team played Fitzgerald's Cardinals squad to a 7-7 tie.

Peterson's father, Nelson, said he and 25 family members will accompany the Vikings' rookie star to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii after Sunday's game between New England and the New York Giants.

Fitzgerald didn't predict a Super Bowl for the Cardinals, but he did say: "We're going to be in the playoffs next season. I guarantee that."
