As you know, star running back Adrian Peterson will not be suiting up against the Atlanta Falcons today. Starting in his stead will be second year running back Toby Gerhart. Gerhart has seen limited action in his two seasons and has just 118 yards on 24 carries this season.
Besides Peterson, the Vikings are relatively healthy. Wide receiver Percy Harvin, who was questionable all week with a ribs injury, is active and will play. Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, who was also questionable with a hamstring injury and limited in practice all week, is also active for Sunday's game.
Here's the full list of Minnesota Vikings inactives vs. Falcons:
• Running back Adrian Peterson (ankle)
• Tight end Kyle Rudolph (quad)
• Offensive tackle DeMarcus Love
• Guard Anthony Herrera (knee)
• Defensive end D'Aundre Reed
• Corner back Chris Cook (not injury-related)
• Safety Husain Abdullah (concussion)
