Vikings running back Adrian Peterson’s MRI showed no ligament damage, eliminating the possibility of a Lisfranc injury. The good news for Peterson is minimal however, as Coach Leslie Frazier has not yet ruled out shutting him down for the season.
The results of Peterson’s CT scan will determine the condition of the bone itself, but A-P feels like the damage isn’t too significant. He claims that he will be able to play against the Eagles Week 15, but Frazier has a good point in taking precautionary measures with his star player.
Frazier says he will make a “decision about this ballgames and future ballgames in this season” upon receiving results of the CT scan. Peterson was carted off the field in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens after managing only 13 yards on 7 carries.
AP will obviously be a top RB1 if healthy and active for Week 15, but his situation is not clear at this point in time. If unable to make the start, Toby Gerhart will get the nod and could be an intriguing option against an average Eagles run defense. More news of Peterson’s injury will surface once the results from the scan are in.
