Adrian Peterson says X-rays negative after he left game briefly with back injury

By Derek Wetmore

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Adrian Peterson says he’ll play next week.

The Vikings’ star running back had to leave Sunday’s game against the Packers with a lower back injury, but he said after the game that X-rays taken came back negative.

Head coach Mike Zimmer said Peterson should be fine, and Peterson told reporters that he’ll play next week, when the Vikings host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday in the first round of the NFL playoffs.

Peterson carried the ball 19 times for 67 yards and a touchdown Sunday at Lambeau Field, and after leaving the game to go up the tunnel toward the locker room, he returned for the Vikings’ final possession. He and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater fumbled the exchange on a handoff during that drive, but Peterson recovered the fumble and the Vikings held on for a 20-13 victory to win the NFC North.
