Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings suffered a sprained foot two weeks ago, and as a result, missed last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, now he is listed as questionable for this week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. But Peterson feels he’s ready to play. From ESPN,

“I’ve got another day to rest tomorrow is going to be good,” he said on Friday. “As far as the foot goes, I’ll be ready to roll.”

Peterson participated in practice on Friday, albeit limited.

“But Frazier said Peterson did “enough where he would feel confident and we would feel confident. If everything goes fine tomorrow, he should be ready to go on Sunday.”

Peterson should be excited to get back on the field, as he is near the NFL’s rushing title for a second straight year. He is just 122 yards behind LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles on the season. But if anyone can do it, it’s Adrian Peterson.

Do you think Peterson will be able to defend his rushing title? Or will his sprained foot hinder his chances further?
