Adrian Peterson Has Foot Sprain

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) is being diagnosed with a foot sprain, not an ankle injury as previously reported. Peterson is scheduled to undergo an MRI Monday, Dec. 9. X-rays after the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens were negative. Peterson said Sunday, Dec. 8, that he does not believe the injury is of the season-ending variety. “Not at all. You should’ve seen me in here, trying to get back out there,” Peterson said. “I kept my pads on throughout most of the third quarter, until I finally was like, ‘I’m not going to be able to go’.”
