Adrian Peterson injury: Ankle improving, but still nagging

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Minnesota Vikings running back said his ankle is feeling better after extended rest, but is still nagging a little bit.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's ankle is still bothering him a little bit, but is feeling better after extended rest this week. Peterson and the Vikings lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Oct. 25, giving the players a chance to rest over the weekend.

Peterson, who injured his ankle during Week 5, has not missed any game time because of the injury, but has sat out many practices. Peterson said of his ankle on Thursday, Nov. 1, "(it's) still nagging a little bit. But it's nothing that's going to stop me from playing or anything ... it's better than it was."

Peterson leads the NFL in rushing with 775 yards on 151 carries after coming back from offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL. Peterson even mentioned that running for 300 yards in a game is a possibility. His career high is 296 yards, which he ran for on Nov. 4, 2007 against the San Diego Chargers during his rookie season.

The Minnesota Vikings take on the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday.
