RB Peterson Ruled Out For Sunday’s Game Vs Lions

Adrian Peterson has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions, meaning that the star running back will miss the Vikings’ final game at Mall of America Field.

The Vikings announced that Peterson had been downgraded from doubtful to out on their official Twitter account Saturday afternoon.

Peterson, who has rushed for more yards than any other player in Mall of America Field’s 32-year history, has been plagued by a groin injury suffered last week against Cincinnati and a foot injury sustained earlier this month.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier had hinted on Friday that Peterson, the leading rusher in franchise history, might play against Detroit.
