Vikings injury report: Adrian Peterson, Matt Kalil both sit out Wednesday

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota star tailback Adrian Peterson was one of three Vikings players to be held out of Wednesday's practice.

Only 188 rushing yards away from becoming just the seventh player in NFL history to crack the 2,000-yard mark, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to abdomen and groin injuries.

Peterson joined nine other Vikings players on the team's initial Week 16 injury report, a list that includes fellow Wednesday inactives in offensive lineman Matt Kalil and defensive end Brian Robison. Five other players including defensive end Jared Allen and cornerback Antoine Winfield were also limited to begin the week of practices, while both Everson Griffen and Marcus Sherels were full participants despite dealing with elbow injuries.

With Eric Dickerson's illustrious NFL record well within Peterson's sights, the star tailback has been held out of practices by his recent abdomen injury recent weeks. The sure-fire MVP candidate sat out on Thursday in each of the past two weeks to stay fresh, and is a mortal lock to be on the field in his usual capacity against the Texans this Sunday.
