Vikings players informed tonight that RB Adrian Peterson will not play against the Eagles.
And Toby Gerhart also not expected to play, which means lots of Matt Asiata and even Joe Banyard.
It sounds as if Peterson has been ruled out, as expected, while there is still a slim chance that Gerhart plays. But we'll likely see a lot of Asiata and Banyard. In his senior year, Matt Asiata rushed for 695 yards and eight TDs on 155 carries (4.5 YPC) to go along with 32-195-1 in passing game. Neither player has done anything on the NFL level, so this is a situation to avoid if at all possible.
