Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is aiming to play in the season finale despite a sprained right foot that has slowed him the last few weeks. Peterson took part in practice Thursday. He said prior to the workout his “mindset is to be out there” Sunday against Detroit, the last game ever at the Metrodome. But Peterson acknowledged he felt uncomfortable last week at Cincinnati. He said “stay tuned,” as to whether he’ll be healthy enough to play.
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier talked with to the team about his job status Tuesday morning. He believes that could have been reason the team lost focus in last week’s blow out loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Vikings will have a ceremony to say goodbye to Mall of America Field.
