Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson still experiencing pain in foot


The Minnesota Vikings are coming off a snowy loss against the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in one of the most intense games on Sunday.

During that game,  Adrian Peterson was carted off the field after suffering a foot injury which was revealed to be a sprained foot. Now while the team prepares for the Eagles on Sunday, Peterson admitted on Friday that his foot has been bothering him.

But of course being the warrior that Peterson is, he will more than likely try to play through the pain in hopes of finishing the season strong.

Peterson is having a great year, but nothing compared to the year he had last season. He has over 1,200 rushing yards with 10 touchdowns on 268 carries for the Vikings this year.

His biggest game of the year came against the Chicago Bears where he rushed for 211 yards in an overtime thriller.

If Peterson happens to play on Sunday, he will more than likely split carries with Toby Gerhart.
