In a game that the Vikings have controlled, for the most part, from the outset, running back Adrian Peterson has suffered an apparent ankle injury late in the game.
After catching a pass in the backfield from quarterback Brett Favre, Peterson’s ankle twisted as he was being tackled.
He limped badly off the field but he now seems to be walking normally.
The incident occurred just a few plays after a 58-yard run put the Vikings into field goal range.
Minnesota leads late, 30-17.
To their credit, the Ravens keep coming. So this one isn’t over yet.
UPDATE: It’s definitely not over. The Ravens already have scored again. It’s 30-24 with five minutes left.
SECOND UPDATE: Peterson has returned. But it looks like the Vikes are trying to blow this one. Ravens will get the ball back with 3:52 to play and trailing by six.
