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.
