Vikings | Adrian Peterson unlikely to play this week
Tue, 10 Dec 2013 05:17:41 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) will not need surgery on his sprained right foot, but he is unlikely to play in Week 15. He has a mid-foot sprain, and an MRI showed no damage or risk of a Lisfranc injury. Peterson still says he plans to play, but Peterson will have to spend time in a walking boot and prove he can run once he gets out of the boot.
The Vikings have no reason to rush him back this week, or at all this season. Toby Gerhart would take over and should be owned in most formats. Hold on to Peterson, who said he wants to play and has a tendency to heal quickly. However, don't hold your breath that he returns this season.
