Adrian Peterson X-Ray Comes Up Negative

Good news for Minnesota Vikings fans, x-ray’s taken of Adrian Peterson’s ankle show no breaks.

Peterson left during the first quarter of Sunday’s 27-21 loss versus the Oakland Raiders and did not return for the remainder of the game although he did still stand on the sideline with his shoulder pads still in place.

While his sprained ankle showed no breaks team doctors say they will wait for an MRI to determine the extent of his ankle’s damage before deciding if it’s safe for him to play next Sunday at Atlanta.

Peteron’s ankle rolled hard after a 12-yard run in which he was taken to the ground under heavy traffic and was then unable to walk off the field under his own weight, instead being picked supported and escorted off the field by team trainers.

The loss of Peterson is never a good sign for Vikings fans as he is currently fifth in the NFL in rushing with 846 years with 11 touchdowns

Peterson had carried the ball 26 yards with six carries and one touchdown on Sunday before exiting the game.

Do you think the Minnesota Vikings are capable of competing on a professional level without Adrian Peterson in their lineup to push the ball for the extra yards they need?
