Vikings vs. Packers injury report: Adrian Peterson probable despite missing practices

USA TODAY Sports

The Vikings' star running back can become the seventh player in NFL history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season with 102 yards against the Packers. He needs 208 yards to break Eric Dickerson's record for rushing yards in a season.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as probable for Sunday's critical Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers, despite missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday with an abdominal injury. Peterson returned to practice on Friday on a limited basis.

Cornerback Antoine Winfield and defensive end Brian Robison are both listed as questionable; however, Dan Wiederer of the Star Tribune reports that the Vikings expect both to be in the lineup on Sunday.

Defensive end Jared Allen, punter Chris Kluwe, offensive tackle Phil Loadholt and Marcus Sherels round out the injury report, but are all expected to play and are listed as probable. Linebacker Marvin Mitchell did not receive a listing for Sunday despite missing practice on Friday with an illness and will play.

Peterson leads the NFL with 1,898 yards rushing and can become the seventh player in NFL history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season with 102 yards against the Packers. He needs 208 yards to break Eric Dickerson's record for rushing yards in a season.
