Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson questionable for Sunday’s game

SHARE Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson questionable for Sunday’s game

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed practice today with an illness and has been listed as questionable on the injury report with an ankle/illness.

We’ll see what kind of information trickles out of the Vikings later today. My guess would be that an illness on Friday will probably not keep him out of a game on Sunday. He was limited the two previous practices with an ankle injury, so it’s possible he will not be at full strength.

The Vikings are expected to be without right guard Anthony Herrera, who has missed all week because of a concussion. Similarly, the Bears will be without tight end Desmond Clark, who has an ankle injury. Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield is expected to play even though he is listed as questionable.
