Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) said an MRI exam on his sprained foot has shown no ligament tears, and he also ruled out a Lisfranc injury. Peterson will undergo a CT scan but expects to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: The fact remains that AD is dealing with a sprained foot, which will be tough to come back from for Week 15. Even if he winds up playing against the Eagles, he'll likely be limited. Toby Gerhart should be added everywhere as insurance or in the event that Peterson is out this weekend.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the team's Week 14 game.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his practice participation to see if he will be able to play Week 15. He could start if he does play because of the injury to Adrian Peterson (foot).

Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart carried 15 times for 89 yards and a 41-yard touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens, coming on for an injured RB Adrian Peterson (ankle).
Fantasy Tip: Gerhart was highly touted out of Stanford, but he has been in the shadow of Peterson for his entire career. If Peterson is forced to miss time, Gerhart could be a sneaky fantasy player in the coming weeks. But there is no indication that Peterson's injury will keep him out.

The Minnesota Vikings likely will be willing to listen to trade offer for RB Toby Gerhart once training camp begins.
Sun, 27 Jan 2013 18:12:04 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart was expected to split time with RB Adrian Peterson early on, but he ended up in the same backup role he's always been. Gerhart is entering a contract year, and he has minimal mileage on his body. He figures to return as Peterson's primary backup unless the team can find value in the trade market.
Mon, 24 Sep 2012 13:54:36 -0700
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team has some concern over RB Toby Gerhart's three fumbles in Week 3 because they do not want him to lose confidence. "We're going to need Toby to make big plays for us throughout this season and we've got to keep his confidence up," Frazier said. "We know he's capable of holding onto the football. He usually does a good job with that. We don't want him to go in the tank and get down."
Sun, 09 Sep 2012 17:44:35 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart had six carries for 18 yards in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he added one reception for eight yards.
Fantasy Tip: Gerhart was expected to split carries with RB Adrian Peterson (knee), but Peterson ended up galloping 17 times for 84 yards and two scores despite suffering torn knee ligaments in Week 17 last season. It appears Gerhart should only be used as a 'flex' fantasy option in the deepest of leagues unless Peterson suffers some sort of setback.
Sun, 09 Sep 2012 09:38:12 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will start during Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. RB Toby Gerhart, however, is still expected to see more carries during the game.
Sat, 18 Aug 2012 05:43:00 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart had six carries for 30 yards in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 17. He also recorded a 19-yard reception.
Sun, 12 Aug 2012 18:32:25 -0700
Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) took all the first-team reps in practice Sunday, Aug. 12, in his first day back from the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list. RB Toby Gerhart was working with the second team.
