Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out versus Eagles

Multiple reports are stating that the Minnesota Vikings will be without running backs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

It’s a tough blow for the Vikings chances of winning. They enter Sunday’s game with a 3-9-1 record.

Peterson (ankle) and Gerhart (hamstring) will be replaced by Matt Asiata in the Vikings backfield. Joe Banard who was just signed off the practice squad is the next man up.
