Peterson Returns to Football Field

Stoops: Peterson cleared to play

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says tailback Adrian Peterson has been cleared to play football again.

For the first time since breaking his collarbone October 14th, Peterson practiced with his teammates, although coaches limited his workout to non-contact and 7-on-7 drills.

Stoops says Peterson will be given more things to do as the January 1st game against Boise State nears. Peterson was knocked out for seven games after the Iowa State game, which O-U won 34-to-9.

The injury happened when Peterson was closing in on the end zone on a 53-yard touchdown run. Cyclone cornerback Chris Singleton tripped him up and Peterson stumbled, dove and landed awkwardly on his shoulder.
