MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he thinks the New Orleans Saints were purposely trying to injure his sprained left ankle in their game on Sunday.

Peterson had 10 carries for 60 yards against the Saints after missing the previous three weeks with a high ankle sprain. Peterson said after the game he expected the defensive players to target his ankle while trying to bring him down.

But he also says he took particular offense to one play when cornerback Jabari Greer twisted his ankle in a pile up.

Peterson says he confronted Greer because he thought that “it kind of got overboard.”

Peterson said he didn’t injure the ankle anymore in the 42-20 loss.

  2. What Next? says:

    Ummm, there is past history (and not just against Vikings) with their D-coordinator. This may be an excuse, but you can’t discount the accusation!

  3. Brett says:

    On top of that, the refs called a horrible game.

    Shut your mouth…do your job. You’re a high paid entertainer and absolutely nothing more. Act like you’ve been there before. If Leslie Frazier had any sand at all, this self-important circus performer would be docked a day’s pay and spend a quarter on the bench for every statement he made to the media.

    That miserable motley group Steckel had at least had the decency and common sense to keep their mouths closed, head down and credited the “enemy” when they got whipped.
    AP – you starting to sound like my grand daughters. That’s not a compliment

      that is true, being compared to your grand daughters, that wouldn’t be a compliment either… that’s why inbreeding is the only chance for your family…

    They sure took a lot of cheap shots at us when we played them in the NFC Championship game. We should of just went out and gave them a lot of cheap shots. You know, try to set a record for the most penalties in a game. Something to strive for……
