Draft Scout *Adrian Peterson News
12/26/13 - RB Adrian Peterson (foot, groin) returned Sunday after missing the Baltimore game because of a sprained right foot. But he clearly wasn't himself and was pulled after the Vikings fell behind by 28 points. Peterson didn't practice at all on Tuesday, but was limited on Thursday. He'll be re-evaluated on Friday.
12/23/13 - RB Adrian Peterson (foot, groin) returned Sunday after missing the Baltimore game because of a sprained right foot. But he clearly wasn't himself because of the foot and a groin injury that has nagged him for weeks. With the Vikings trailing the Bengals by 28 points early in the third quarter, Peterson was pulled after just 11 carries. Peterson will be reevaluated this week.
12/18/13 - RB Adrian Peterson (foot) missed the second half of the Baltimore game and the entire Eagles game, but is expected return this week at Cincinnati.
12/16/13 - RB Adrian Peterson (foot) suffered a mid-foot sprain to his right foot against Baltimore and did not play on Sunday. He made progress last week, practicing on Friday, but the Vikings proceeded on the side of caution after a pre-game workout nearly cleared him to play. Peterson will be evaluated later in the week.
12/13/13 - RBs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhardt are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.
Peterson sprained his right foot last Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Earlier in the week, tests showed that he did not need surgery. However, the team decided to list him as questionable after he worked out Friday.
"He was able to plant. He was able to push off," coach Leslie Frazier said. "We'll see tomorrow if there's any soreness, but he looked far better than I anticipated."
The Vikings are more optimistic about the playing status of Gerhart, who is recovering from a strained hamstring against the Ravens.
Gerhardt had 89 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown against Baltimore.
Peterson said repeatedly this week that he would play Sunday.
"That's just not my mentality -- leaving these guys out to dry," he said Friday. "I love the game too much to sit out, just because. If I'm out, you're going to know that, 'Hey, he can't go.' That's going to be the case. But outside of that, I'm going to try to put my best foot forward to get out there and play every Sunday."
Peterson has rushed for 1,221 yards with 10 touchdowns in 13 games this season.
