See you Tuesday, Mr. Peterson

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will appear in court Monday morning in Houston in connection with a July 7 incident during which police allege he resisted arrest during a skirmish with security at a nightclub.

Peterson will fly to Texas on Sunday, and his mandatory court appearance means he will miss a day of Vikings training camp in Mankato. Yet Monday likely will be the only day on which he misses any football-related time because of his legal proceedings. Peterson remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list as he works to return from major knee surgery.

Monday's hearing will be procedural, with the prosecution formally announcing whether it wants to go forward and set a trial date or drop the charges altogether. The state could request more time to investigate and review the case. But even in that instance, Peterson's defense team will request that a trial date be set during the Vikings' bye week in November.

CAMP PROFILE

Audie Cole

Position: Linebacker

The skinny: A 6-5, 239-pounder who can run and move like a smaller defender, Cole was a seventh-round draft pick in this year's draft out of North Carolina State.

Did you know?

Cole is a former Golden Gloves winner in boxing.

Chances of making the team: Not a lock, but a lack of depth at linebacker and being a draft pick definitely helps. Five of the seven seventh-rounders taken in General Manager Rick Spielman's first five drafts (2007 to 2011) are still with the team.

CAMP CHATTER

"We want to evaluate a guy on a broad body of work and not five days worth of practice."

-- Defensive coordinator Alan Williams on first-round draft pick Harrison Smith, who remains a second-team safety despite the assumption that he'll be a starter when the season begins.
