Adrian Peterson Injury Update: No Timetable, But Could Return To Vikings This Week

The Adrian Peterson injury is one of the few things worth keeping track of as far as Minnesota Vikings news is concerned for the rest of the season. The other story to watch will be either hoping that the team can play a spoiler role or hoping for a high draft pick, depending on whether the glass is half-full or half-empty, but Peterson's status will likely be an integral part of those stories as well.

Frazier has sat out the last two games with a high ankle sprain, but he could return this week according to head coach Leslie Frazier.

As for RB Adrian Peterson, who has missed two games with an ankle injury, there is no timeline for his return. It could be as early as this week, but there's also a possibility that he misses another game. We'll monitor his status as the week progresses.

Considering that the Vikings also had hopes that Peterson would be able to play this past week, it's probably not worth reading too far into this update. His status is worth keeping an eye on regardless, though, as the Vikings prepare for their game against the Detroit Lions.
