Adrian Peterson Says Back Injury "Not a Big Deal"

A shiver of panic went through Viking Nation Wednesday when it learned that Adrian Peterson had been listed on the injury report with a back issue and seen only limited action in practice.

On Thursday, AD put our fears to rest by saying the back issue was “not a big deal” and declaring that, “God willing” he would “be out there playing” on Sunday against the 49ers.

Well, it’s easy for Adrian to say a back injury isn’t a big deal.  All he has to do is endure the pain.  We all have to endure the thought of the Vikings going back to the way they were before he came.

    what about taylor and young 2 dam good running backs i hope ap is up and running but we do have good back ups……

  • Tyler

    Without peterson, we lose the spark. Taylor is maybe the best backup in the league, but if adrian is out and Childress runs the vanilla offense, I forsee a really close game and probably a loss.

  • Grant Wickesberg

    It better not be a big deal, we’re gonna need him to beat a sneaky 49ers team.

  • Randy

    Minny will beat frisco without AP if necessary,don’t worry!
