Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who missed Thursday's practice with an injured foot and groin, is listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Bengals. Peterson was a limited participant during Wednesday and Friday's session.
Despite the questionable label, Peterson expects to play.
Peterson said he felt he was ready to go last week, when he was inactive. "Man, words can’t even express. I was hot. I was devastated."— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) December 20, 2013
Peterson last played against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 8, but was listed as inactive last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles. Prior to the Ravens game, Peterson generated 357 yards rushing with a touchdown against the Packers and Bears combined.
Along with Peterson, backup Toby Gerhart, listed as probable with a hamstring, has been playing well recently, generating 89 and 91 yards rushing respectively in two of the past four weeks. And when both backs were out last week against the Eagles, Matt Asiata scored three rushing touchdowns.
