Peterson expected to play

  • Print

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Adrian Peterson shouldn't have any reason to get "hot" at Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier this week.

Peterson returned to practice for Minnesota on Friday and is expected to play in Sunday's game at Cincinnati as long as he doesn't have any setbacks with his sprained right foot. The league's second-leading rusher, Peterson is listed as questionable for the Vikings (4-9-1).

"I'm looking forward to playing this week," Peterson said Friday. "Get another day to rest tomorrow, which is going to be good. As far as the foot goes, I'll be ready to go."

Peterson missed last week's game after spraining his foot a week earlier at Baltimore. Though he returned to practice on a limited basis last Friday, Frazier held Peterson out of Sunday's 48-30 win against Philadelphia. Frazier said it wasn't an easy conversation with Peterson, who admitted to being "hot" and devastated" about having to sit out.
