Adrian Peterson is “very, very doubtful”


It doesn’t sound like the Vikings will have Adrian Peterson in the lineup this Sunday.

He’s listed as doubtful with a high ankle sprain, but coach Leslie Frazier sounded even more pessimistic on Friday afternoon. Frazier, per Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, said that Peterson, who didn’t practice on Friday, is “very, very doubtful” to be on the field against the Falcons. Toby Gerhart is expected to get most of the work in Peterson’s place.

The Vikins ruled out safety Husain Abdullah, cornerback Chris Cook and guard Anthony Herrera. Tight end Kyle Rudolph is listed as doubtful, while tight end Visanthe Shiancoe and wide receiver Percy Harvin were both listed as questionable after limited participation in Friday’s practice.

    Why is this even news? Who cares about 2-8 teams anyway?

    No need to rush him back. Let him rest and get healthy. It’s not like they are 10 -0 and playing for home field.

    AP probably isn’t even hurt. This is an evil ownership plot to get Toby Gerhart some reps to use relocation to Salt Lake City as leverage for a new stadium.

    Dang. Now how are they going to beat the Falcons?

    I can’t wait to hear what kind of impact this has on someone’s fantasy team.

    Also very doubtful: The Vikings staying in Minnesota. I hope people wise up there, or the only reason people are going to visit is to fish those 10,000 lakes they have.

    The Viking franchise is very doubtful.

    @ 2-8 does it really matter except for fantasy teams and results?

    Well, its obvious you cared enough to read and post. With every click, you justify an article you claim to “not care” about.

    I get a kick out of all you that hope the Vikings leave and come here to dis. Are you really that bored with your own team, you have to look at other team blogs? Is yours team blogs really that lame, that this is more interesting for you? HaHaHa

    I’m posting simply to goad and irritate the lavender gender benders.

    i dont think peterson’s presence or lack thereof will affect the outcome.

    “The Vikins ruled out safety…”

    “Vikins”…I’m glad the superior proofreading continues.

    Not to be jerk but I think the vikings could have condensed it and saved some ink by putting “out”.
