The Saints take on the Vikings Sunday at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

As Who-Dats focus on getting the team's first win, Jim Henderson states a win could be dependent on the Vikings' best player, Adrian Peterson.

"I think that'll be the main concern all week long. What will be the status of Peterson? And we may not know that until the weekend," said Henderson.

The Vikings lost a one-sided contest to New England Sunday.

"The Saints are coming home this week and it has to be a boost for them and it's right back on the road for them to take on Dallas and it's a week-to-week deal," added Henderson. "Right now, next week can't begin soon enough for the Saints and coming home in front of that Mercedes Benz Superdome crowd can't come soon enough because this is a team that really needs [a win] and hopefully next Sunday afternoon."

Last week, Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges involving his son. As Henderson stated, it's not yet clear if he'll play this weekend.
