Vikings | Toby Gerhart ready to carry the load

Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart said he is preparing to carry the rushing load if RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is not ready to start the 2012 season. "I'm preparing to be the guy," Gerhart said. "I try to do that every year. But this year it's a little more prevalent. I'm doing everything I can to be here, work hard, work with the new guys we have coming in. I'm pushing everybody and getting pushed by other guys. Preparing to be the guy, depending on whether Adrian comes back."
