Adrian Peterson sits out practice with thigh bruise; ‘I’ll be OK’


MANKATO, Minn. — The Vikings collectively held their breaths with Adrian Peterson laying on the practice field in Mankato on Tuesday, but all were able to exhale after he got up.

Peterson sat out walkthrough and practice on Wednesday as the Vikings have little reason to rush him back. He and coach Mike Zimmer insists there’s no long-term concern after taking a “knee to the thigh,” Peterson said, during an inside run drill.

“A thigh bruise, but I’ll be OK,” he said. “I knew what it was right away, it was just so painful, that’s why I stayed down a little bit.”
