Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (hamstring) is listed as probable for Monday night’s game at the Giants on the final injury report, the club said Saturday afternoon.

“He practiced well today, so that was encouraging,” Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Saturday of Peterson, according to a transcript from the club.

Left tackle Matt Kalil (back) is questionable and missed practice on Saturday, but the Vikings “expect him to be ready to go on Monday night,” Frazier said.

Reserve cornerback A.J. Jefferson (ankle) is listed as doubtful, with wide receiver Rodney Smith (hip) questionable.

In addition to Peterson, eight other Vikings are listed as probable: defensive end Jared Allen (ankle), tight end Rhett Ellison (knee), quarterback Christian Ponder (rib), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), center John Sullivan (hand), placekicker Blair Walsh (left hamstring), defensive tackle Kevin Williams (knee) and wide receiver Jarius Wright (ankle).

  1. Does it really matter whether Jefferson plays or not? I almost feel bad for the guy, but he is very bad at his job.

  2. As a Viking 4 life since 1968, after that lack of effort from everyone last Sunday against Carolina and the constant ineptitude of the coaching staff as well as the players………………would this injury report make a difference, unfortunately I think not……………..

  3. Sure glad Rodney smith has a hip injury. Frazier doesn’t play rookies. Not sure why. But he will figure it out.

  4. probable does not mean they are not playing tokyo I can still see the vikings beat the giants, lets see how many interceptions Eli can throw ( sorry Eli )

  5. As a life long Viking fan (and victim of last week) I can only hope (with Smith down) the rest of the DB starters won’t be starting.

    Tokyo/Gerbschit was right – his Mom is hot!

  6. Thought the Vikings stand a chance in this game. Due to the looks of the schedule, the Vikings face more complete teams after this one. The best thing to do at this point is nab a good first round draft pick next year, so I don’t have to see this next year.
