Vote: What's your take on Adrian Peterson's role with Saints?

Adrian Peterson had just 6 carries in his Saints debut. ESPN Stats & Info

With Adrian Peterson receiving the ball just six times in his New Orleans Saints debut on Monday night -- tied for the fewest number of carries in a game in his career -- some are wondering whether the veteran running back was utilized properly in what was an ugly 29-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Peterson himself was seen having an animated exchange with Sean Payton on the sideline during the game, though both the player and coach downplayed it.

What do you think of Peterson's workload (six carries for 18 yards and no receptions), which was lighter than fellow backs Mark Ingram (six carries, five receptions) and Alvin Kamara (seven carries, four receptions)? Should he have been given more opportunities? And what should his role be going forward?

The Saints face the New England Patriots on Sunday looking to avoid dropping to 0-2.
