Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier announced Friday that Peterson is questionable with a foot injury for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. His backup Toby Gerhart also is questionable for the game. Frazier indicated Peterson would be a game-time decision.
Peterson and Gerhart both did light drills at Friday's practice. Frazier indicated that Peterson's stride looked good.
"He looked far better than I anticipated," Frazier said. "It was impressive, when you consider the initial diagnosis. He's unique."
Peterson doesn't have anything to play for other than a possible rushing title, so we're expecting him to sit out, though we should know more on Saturday or early Sunday. (The Vikings play early on Sunday.) If he can't go, Gerhart would be a solid start in his place, though he's dealing with a hamstring injury that might keep him out as well. If neither can play, Matt Asiata would get the call.
