Vikings rule Adrian Peterson (groin) out vs. Packers

After a one-game return, Adrian Peterson has been ruled out again.

The Vikings running back will not play in Minnesota's Week 16 matchup against the Packers after aggravating a groin injury against the Colts. Peterson did not participate in practice all this week because of groin and knee ailments.

Peterson had missed 12 games with a torn meniscus, but accelerated his recovery in order to return this season. Against the Colts, Peterson had just six carries for 22 yards and fumbled on his game-long 13-yard run.

Harrison Smith (ankle) is among those listed as questionable to play against Green Bay. Minnesota's safety missed the last two games, but was a full participant in Friday's practice. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs (hip) is also questionable.
