After Peterson suffered a scary injury against the Ravens, he was forced to miss the game last week against the Eagles.  Although the Vikings won that game, Peterson was reported to say that he was “devistated” that he had to watch the game from the sidelines.

His status for this game was in doubt after he was slapped with the “questionable” tag, but don’t fear because Purple Jesus will be starting against the Bengals.
