Adrian Peterson injury not considered serious

ESPN - [Full Article]

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson left practice after dropping to the ground during a run drill on Tuesday afternoon, but it didn't sound as though the Minnesota Vikings running back's injury was anything serious.

A source said Peterson told those around him he'd taken a helmet to the thigh, but that there was nothing wrong with his knee. And running back Jerick McKinnon said he thought Peterson would be back at practice on Wednesday.

"He got tangled up," McKinnon said. "A defender fell on him, but he said he was alright. Everybody knows Adrian's got a cape on. He'll be back out here tomorrow. I don't think anybody's worried about him."

Fantasy Impact: 

Peterson stayed on the ground briefly before getting up, and eventually went back in for one more snap. He appeared to be walking with a slight limp as he watched team drills, but stood on the side of practice for about 10 minutes before heading in with athletic trainer Eric Sugarman. Looks like Peterson dodged a bullet and owners can breath a sigh of relief. We'll continue to keep you updated.
