Vikings | Adrian Peterson awaits word from specialist
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 17:21:02 -0800
Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings sent the MRI results of RB Adrian Peterson (foot) to a specialist Monday, Dec. 9, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. It's possible that unless the specialist gives Peterson a clean bill of health, and can convince the team he will not do any further damage by playing, the team will shut him down for the final three games. Two of the games are on the synthetic home turf at Mall of America Field.
If Peterson is limited or unable to play, Toby Gerhart figures to be the biggest beneficiary of more touches. He was solid in a relief role in Week 14. Add Gerhart as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play for Week 15 if Peterson is ruled out.
