With a playoff berth and a possible league MVP award within reach, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is hobbled.
Peterson has an ankle injury, and he was limited in practice on Wednesday.
Missing practice for the Vikings were tackle Artis Hicks (elbow), defensive end Jared Allen (knee), receiver Darius Reynaud (foot), and defensive tackle Pat Williams (shoulder).
Quarterback Gus Frerotte (back) and defensive end Brian Robison (knee) were also limited participants.
The Vikings host the Falcons on Sunday in a battle of 9-5 teams.

    Peterson is way too tough to be held out by a damn ankle.

    He has been held out of practice before. He’s fine.

    ADP will play this weekend, theres too much on the line. I bet they make him a game time decesion just to mess with the Falcons. The guys a machine the Vikings should just give him a couple days to rest.

    In Soviet Russia, Ankle Hurts You.
    Seriously, I hope Peterson plays come Sunday. (And the rest of the way, but put more Chester Taylor in there to cool it off of Peterson).

    If Childress can do his job without a brain, Peterson can do his on a bad ankle.

    It’s ok you can rest your ankle when the offseason starts in TWO WEEKS!

    “It’s ok you can rest your ankle when the offseason starts in TWO WEEKS!”
    You DO realize that he’s talking about Minnesota’s great running back Adrian Peterson and not Chicago’s worthless loser running back Adrian Peterson, right?

    “If Childress can do his job without a brain, Peterson can do his on a bad ankle.”
    Could you maybe take a few weeks. . .or months. . .or years off and come back when your team has any relevance, please?

    He’d better play – Atlanta or Tampa Bay has to lose and I don’t think the ‘Bolts are up to it.

    This guy is always injured. He was hurt in college, he didn’t go for 16 games last year and has not completed an NFL 16 game season once.
