NFL: Adrian Peterson Unlikely to play vs. Eagles


Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was forced from Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens early in the game with what was later determined to be a foot sprain and not a Lisfranc foot injury that would have certainly ended his season.

He was forced to watch from the sideline as the Ravens and Vikings scored a combined 36 points in the final two minutes of the game, and he’ll likely miss this week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles:


Peterson is in a walking boot after suffering what the team is calling a “mid-foot sprain” Sunday against the Ravens, and with the Vikings at 3-9-1, they may use this as an excuse to shut him down the final three weeks against the Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions.



Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes is also expected to miss a few weeks after he went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game with what’s likely a high-ankle sprain, and could be sent to injured reserve.


The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings has passed his concussion test and should be good to go this week against Kansas City Chiefs at home. This, after he missed this past week’s loss to the New York Jets.
