Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson continues to struggle with a high ankle sprain and after giving it a test on Sunday morning, he has been ruled out for Minnesota's week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.
NFL.com reporter Jason LaCanfora confirmed that Peterson will miss his third straight game on Sunday but holds out hope to return next week.
Adrian Peterson will not play today. Traveled with team and worked out before game. Barring a setback I suspect he plays Week 15
With Peterson still on the shelf, second-year running back Toby Gerhart will start for the Vikings.
