Adrian Peterson encouraged by MRI on foot


Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was encouraged by the results of an MRI on his injured foot. Peterson and the Vikings are still awaiting the results of a CT scan.

“Well, it’s a little painful,” Peterson said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Obviously it kept me out of the game. The MRI came back great so that’s good. Just got to get a CT scan to make sure the bone is OK.”

The Vikings are 3-9-1 this season so even if Peterson is cleared to play its unclear if he will. A Lisfranc injury has been ruled out according to the running back.

“Initially you don’t know exactly what’s going on when you’re feeling it,” Peterson said. “That initial contact definitely didn’t feel good. I was kind of worried. But kind of cleared up a little bit after getting the MRI. I’ll see how things play out after the CT scan.”

We will know more later in the week.
