Adrian Peterson says there’s no reason to sit out a week

Toby Gerhart enjoyed having a chance to get hit in last week’s game against the Seahawks, but his bruises may have to satisfy him a little bit longer.

Adrian Peterson said Thursday that he plans on playing against the Packers despite a groin injury that he felt robbed him of some of his ability last weekend. Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that Peterson said there’s no part of him that believes it would be beneficial to take a week off to allow his injury to heal fully.

There are likely those that would disagree with him, but Peterson’s going to be in the lineup and getting plenty of work on as long as the game isn’t a blowout. There are also going to be plenty that disagree with Peterson’s feeling that there’s still a chance of making the playoffs, but the running back has no interest in hearing from them.

“I don’t care what the people on the outside think about it,” Peterson said.

In that spirit, we’ll save the explanations of why it’s unlikely that a 2-8 team will make the playoffs and just say that a fully powered Peterson would be essential to any hopes of making that happen.

    How about you have two differnet muscle pulls and the only way those heal is time and your season is lost…which I guess doesn’t matter because he’s a viking, their seasons are always lost

    “Gotta get that 2500 yards this season”

    Adrian Peterson’s best career year was 2012. That’s my prognostication.

  5. daysend564 says: Nov 21, 2013 2:53 PM

    He just doesnt want to look like a fool when he comes in at 1200 yards (with all 16 games), less than 1/2 his personal projection. You’ve got 6 games to get 400 yards to get there

    You all love to kick him when he’s down, but you can’t wait to call yourselves a fan when he does special things on the field. Unlike most of my cowardly counterparts, I hope we win out for the sake of pride. Adrian Peterson’s attitude and overall love of the game are the reasons that he is my all time favorite player. Here’s to 8-8 or at least knocking the Pack out of the playoffs this Sunday!

  10. dragonfly99 says: Nov 21, 2013 3:02 PM

    Of course he’s going to play. Playing against Green Bay is the Viking’s biggest game of the year. It’s like their Super Bowl. Adrian may sit out next week, but will not miss this game.

    I wonder if Adrian is worried at all about Sunday marking the 4th straight year in a row of losing twice to the Packers. Must be depressing.

  17. tqaztec says: Nov 21, 2013 3:46 PM

    Two years ago this guy played against the Redskins at the end of the year and blew out his knee in a game the Vikings won to blow its own chance at Luck/RGIII.

    Now they are going to lose a chance on another QB.

  22. wdnemesis says: Nov 21, 2013 4:04 PM

    There is actually No reason to win at this point. We need a QB, the owners should know this team is not going anywhere this year and get good picks to fill the Voids. I don’t mean getting a worse QB either. We need an elite one that is good enough to carry the team on his back. Teams that usually win super bowls have QB’s as elite as they come. Sure they can win but next season will not be good then.

  23. johngaltwho says: Nov 21, 2013 4:13 PM

    Petersen is one of the best running backs in the history of the NFL and the fact that he wasted his whole career on a poorly run franchise is genuinely sad. True, Brett raised their game for a year but that success was short lived. That said, he is as competitive as they come, and an opportunity to play a weakened Packers team that has historically not been able to shut him down in the past is something he would not willingly miss. This Packer squad, with any semblance of health, would decimate the Vikings and whatever 5 free agents they bring in next year or the year after that or the year after that. There’s no Superbowl in his future, but maybe he can win a small battle by beating the Packers Sunday. Makes sense that he’d wanna play.

    Hey classless Packer fans ripping AP- at least he doesn’t take craps in people’s closets or molest baby sitters like a few of your past players- quit pretending you wouldn’t all meet him at the airport if he was traded to the Packers

  33. whatjusthapped says: Nov 21, 2013 5:07 PM

    Peterson rather play than sit home with one of his baby-mommies this week. Heaven forbid he is forced to learn the name of his children, which is a step up from even knowing that he had children as was the case earlier this fall.

    It matters little if Frazier insists on starting Ponder. The NFL should look into this because starting Ponder in the face of his most recent performance is tantamount to tanking the rest of the season for the highest draft pick.

    A draft pick that Spielman will blow if he even gets it in on time.

    It has nothing to do with luck, that Green Bay has been able to keep the Packers all of these years.

    It has been the innovation to the game of football that this organization has practiced throughout the years.
    And to a larger degree, the stock sale so many of you haters love to ridicule.

    The selling of corporate stock enabled the fans to save this franchise from extinction twice.
    Even though the NFL is big business today, and the stock sales are used as taxes for stadium improvements, it wasn’t always that way.

    =========================

    Nope.

    If you read carefully, Filthy said “WORLD” champions.

    Apparently Viking fans fail to understand how this thing works, which is understandable considering your team isn’t part of the World Champion club. I’ll explain.

    For Pre-Superbowl years the World Championship is widely considered as the NFL Champion. Once the Superbowl began the World Champion is the winner of the Superbowl. Pretty simple.

    You lost to the Chiefs in ’69, SO, the Chiefs would be World Champions in ’69 NOT the Vikings. I know it hurts, but it’s the truth.

    Thus the Packers have 13 World Championships. 9 pre-Superbowl era and 4 post.

    But even if we consider only the post Superbowl era victories, we still are leading 4-0.

    Well said, and fully understood, contra!

    Don’t challenge pack fan, they are ill-equipped of common sense.

    They only remember beating the Sioux City Chiefs in 1938 , 1941, 1944, 1946…..you know, in the “NFL” back when they threw the actual pig, when there were maybe 3-6 teams!!!!

    Yeehaw!!!!!!!

    Pack fans totally deny the existence of the dark era of gbay football……the late 60s….the ENTIRE 70s…..and the ENTIRE 80s when they won exactly 1 division crown.

    I give them kudos for 2 Championships since 1968…..we have 1.

    We dominated them for so long, it was ridiculous.

    When I grew up, I sincerely thought the packers were a practice type team-minor league.

    Vikings have always been competitive, minus a few years here and there…..even last year we made the playoff.

    Pack fans still have a complex, even with the “championships” they speak of!!!!!!

    I laugh everytime they say it, which is often, because when they are clueless, they dribble:……uhhh……uhhh……uhhhh…..13 championships!!!

    Half their fans actually think they won all of those in the modern football era, and have never had a losing season.

    They have had LOSING DECADES!!!!!!

    There endeth the lesson, little brother.

  42. seaeagle707 says: Nov 21, 2013 6:08 PM

    We can’t criticize or doubt, the stupendous achievements made on the football field by AP, during his career. He may very well go out as the “best” RB, in history, and we will know that he earned every inch of the records.

    But that whiny “groin injury” excuse he laid on us this week still leaves a lot to be desired in veracity. He couldn’t just leave it alone that a team targeted him, and beat him. That is not the way a true champion behaves. You got beat AP, so accept it and move on. The Hawks didn’t get all crybaby last year when you had a super day against us, did we?

    Besides if you really had a groin “injury” (versus a scrape or bruise), should you have been broadcasting the fact to the Packers? That smacks of you setting yourself up for a beatdown at the hands of Green Bay

    According to the official website of the NFL, the Packers have won a league record 13 World Champisonships.

    The Vikings were awarded a NFL Championship in 1969 for finishing as runner ups to the Kansas City Chiefs. ie – they choked in the Superbowl.

    What kind of loser would count that as a World Championship? I think we can all agree that the official website of the NFL is a more trustworthy source than a handful of degenerate Viking fans.

    To recap – the Vikings have never won a legitimate World Championship.

    ______________________________

    One thing about Packer fans – they live in history of the Packers – but they don’t know the history of the Packers.

    Well, let’s use your definition of a “championship”.

    The last “NFL” game of the 1969 season was the Vikings defeating the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Championship game.

    After the NFL Championship game – they played an exhibition game against the AFL Kansas City Chiefs.

    As far as the Packers “Championships” go – based on needing to win their last NFL game of the year – you just eliminated the 1930 and 1931 “Championships” because the Packers failed to win their last NFL game(s) of the year.

    What makes the 1930 Championship even more dubious is the fact that the Packers not only failed to win their last two games of the season – they failed to win the most games.

    The New York Giants won their last game of the season and had 13 wins. The Packers only had 10 wins.

    So much for a Packer fan trying to educate anyone…

    If the Packers were out of it, which they aren’t, and the Vikings were still contending for the postseason and a chance to play in the SuperBowl, which they aren’t, then this would be the Packers “Super Bowl” , which it isn’t. It’s yours……own it. And stop hoping to lose for crying out loud. It’s pathetic .

    I will not hesitate to say the Vikings are the biggest rivals of the Packers, at least from my perspective. I grew up in Wausau and all my friends and I would talk about was beating the Vikings. We had respect for the Bears, and the feeling was mutual. We hated the Viking fans because of their arrogant superiority complexes. Nothing has changed….in how we feel…or in who they are.

    gtodriver, got you by 10 plus years on living in Wisconsin been all over the state, talked to all different types of people and they say the same thing the Bears are the Packers rivals simply because the Bears put a more competitive team together every year, more history, the games are bigger simply because they usually decide the division. The Vikings are just not there yet, they are not a complete team, and only have 1good season out of every 5. Its the Vikings fans that try to make this a rivalry. This game would be a blowout for the Packers if both teams were healthy.

    That’s hard to believe. Reading the posts from packer fans leads me to believe you guys are chock full of imagination. Regular sci-fi guys.

    Packers are terrible. ShAaron doesn’t even want to play for the team. Not to mention, #12 is collecting “novelty stock” money for trimming a ‘stache.

    I hope AP has a good game. Not playing the Lions and their not catching us anyway!

    No need for AP to sit out this one…most high school defense’s hit harder than the packers.

    Same old Packer dweebs spewing their smack all over every Vikings post.

    I remember all you clowns talking trash last year before the Vikings knock the Packers out of the divisional round of the playoffs last year by showing that soft Packers team a physical beating.
    All these great Packers fans didn’t show up for a week after that loss!!

    If Peterson shouldn’t play beacause the Vikings aren’t going to make the Playofffs, then Clay Mathews might as well not play because there is no way the Packers make the Playoffs either!!!

    LMAO!!!! That soft jelly team is nothing without Rodgers and the Vikings are going to give them a physical beat down Sunday! Book it!!

    Who leads the all time Packers vs Vikings series? That’s right it is the PACKERS! 56-49-1
    Your welcome for the history lesson

    As for superiority complexes? Yes, because I make more money than most of you I do feel I am a better person than most from Wisconsin.

    This much of your post is true.

    But….

    If Packer fans “respect” the Bears – why did my wife and I witness 3 of the Packers “finest” fans urinating on the Bears players at the Packer/Bear game at Lambeau in 1985?

    I was there as a guest of the Shawano Jaycees that day. Absolutely disgusting display of “sportsmanship”.

    I’ve never witnessed a Viking fan do anything like that.

    Hapless and tasteless.

    Hapless and tasteless
