Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed the team’s Week 15 match up against the Philadelphia Eagles. Peterson is still dealing with the foot injury that kept him out of last week’s game, but he has been determined to play and Peterson has said that he will be suiting up for the team on Sunday afternoon.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network passed along the news on Sunday morning:
Not playing last week left #Vikings RB Adrian Peterson a little miffed. No worries today. He’s told people he’s playing on that foot injury

The Vikings will be on the road on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Kick off for the game is set for 1 p.m. ET.
If you are a fantasy football owner that could use the boost from Peterson in your league’s championship game, the news that Peterson is going to suit up should allow you to feel more confident heading in to this week’s game.
